Zahid Mahmood registers unwanted record on Test debut

RAWALPINDI: Leg spinner Zahid Mahmood produced the most expensive debut bowling performance in the history of Test cricket during the ongoing first Test between Pakistan and England, here at Pindi Cricket Stadium.

Mahmood, who has so far conceded 227 runs from 31 runs while bagging two wickets, when visitors are still not finished with their first innings, has relieved the burden from England’s Adil Rashid for holding Test cricket’s most unflattering figures on debut.

Rashid’s unimpressive figures of nought for 163 from 34 overs in the first innings of the Abu Dhabi Test against Pakistan in 2015 was the most unwanted start of a Test career before Mahmood took this dubious record from him.

The match eventually ended in a draw as Rashid earned his honour back in the second innings when he took a five-wicket haul while offering just 64 runs from 18.5 overs.

Mahmood can also hope for a majestic comeback in the later innings as England currently looks solid on the second day of the Rawalpindi Test as they have scored 646/8 so far in the first innings.
