Debutant Jacks storms tailenders as England bowl out Pakistan for 579

RAWALPINDI: England part-time bowler Will Jacks ran through the lower order to help the visiting side bundle out Pakistan for 579 in the first innings – 78 runs behind England’s 657 – on the penultimate day of the first Test, here on Sunday. 

Jacks produced dream figures of 6 for 161 as he hunt down the remaining three wickets to book Pakistan early on Day four as they resumed from the overnight score of 499/7.

All-rounder Agha Salman notched up his half-century before he fell prey to off-spinner Jack, who then went on to dismiss Haris Rauf and Zahid Mahmood.

Earlier on Day three, Pakistan gave a befitting response to England’s record total when skipper Babar Azam dominated the touring party’s bowlers and raised his 8th Test hundred after both the openers Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique scored centuries too.

Pakistan openers piled up an astounding 221-run partnership as Abdullah played a phenomenal knock of 209-ball 114 while Imam contributed 121 off 207.

Skipper Babar, however, smashed a remarkable 168-ball 136 as he stitched a magnificent 123-run partnership with Saud Shakeel for the fourth wicket.

For England, apart from Jack’s outstanding bowling figures, spinner Jack Leach took two scalps while pacers Ollie Robinson and veteran James Anderson also had a wicket each.
