BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan’s Sohail Khan said watching videos of England great James Anderson had helped him end five years of Test exile with a maiden five-wicket haul at Edgbaston on Wednesday. The 32-year-old right arm paceman justified his recall by taking five for 96 as England were dismissed for 297 on the first day of the third Test. It was also a reward for Pakistan’s decision to drop Wahab Riaz from what had been a previously all left-arm pace attack following England’s 330-run win in the second Test at Old Trafford that saw the hosts square the four-match series at 1-1. Sohail, whose previous two Tests yielded an expensive return of one for 245, removed a quartet of top-order batsmen under grey skies following Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq’s decision to field first. Anderson, England’s all-time leading Test bowler with 458 wickets, is a master performer in such conditions. Sohail said studying Anderson, who provided him with his fifth wicket Wednesday when he had England’s last man lbw, had taught him the value of reducing his speed in order to generate more swing. “When I came here after I was named in the squad I watched James Anderson’s videos, he bowls at 80 mph but gets eight to ten wickets every match,” Sohail told reporters after stumps while speaking alongside Pakistan bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed. “I watched him and noticed that he (Anderson) doesn’t try to bowl very fast. “Mushy also told me that if you don’t bowl (too) fast and give the [Read More…]
BIRMINGHAM: Sohail Khan marked his return to Test cricket after a five-year absence with a maiden five-wicket haul as Pakistan dismissed England for 297 on the first day of the third Test at Edgbaston. After Sohail sparked a top-order collapse, England were indebted to left-handers Gary Ballance (70) and Moeen Ali (63) for taking them to what could yet prove a challenging total. Sohail, a 32-year-old right-arm quick, removed a quartet of top-order batsman on his way to figures of five for 96 in 23 overs. Sohail´s return was all the more impressive as his previous two Tests — against Sri Lanka at Karachi in 2009 and against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in 2011 — had yielded a combined haul of one for 245. A stress fracture of the back after last year´s World Cup provided a further check on his progress. Nevertheless, Sohail was recalled in place of Wahab Riaz as Pakistan broke up the all left-arm pace attack they had deployed for the first two Tests of this four-match contest following England´s 330-run series-leveling win at Old Trafford. Sohail took the new ball after Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss on a gloomy morning, with some moisture in the pitch after overnight rain. Alex Hales fell for an unconvincing 17 when caught behind off a good-length Sohail ball. Joe Root had made a Test-best 254 at Old Trafford in a match where he and century-maker Alastair Cook, the England captain, scored 506 runs between them for just twice out. [Read More…]
BIRMINGHAM: Pacers Sohail Khan and Rahat Ali struck in the early hours of the third Test against England at Edgbaston, reducing the opponents to 100 for 3 at lunch on Wednesday. Sohail Khan, recalled to the Pakistan side to replace Wahab Riaz for the third Test, struck twice in the opening hour of the match, leaving England’s top-order looking shaky. The 32-year-old pacer had England opener Alex Hales caught behind at 17. Sohail then sent newcomer Joe Root back to the pavilion at just 3, when the Old Trafford double-century scorer got a thick outside edge to Hafeez’s hands. Rahat Ali later had Captain Alastair Cook trapped for lbw at 45. Earlier, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq elected to field against England after winning the toss. Pakistan made two changes to the side. 20-year-old Sami Aslam replaced opening batsman Shan Masood while Sohail Khan is in for Wahab Riaz. Pakistan won the first Test at Lord’s by 75 runs, only to be crushed by England’s 330-run win in the second Test at Old Trafford. The four-match Test series sits at 1-1. Click for detailed story

BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq believes knocking down England “pillars” Alastair Cook and Joe Root holds the key to his side’s hopes of winning the third Test at Edgbaston. England levelled the four-match series at 1-1 last time out at Old Trafford. Between them, England captain Cook and vice-captain Root made 506 runs at Old Trafford in the second Test the hosts won by a huge margin of 330 runs. “In every team, there are key players and at the moment those two are in really good form,” said Misbah of Cook and Root at Edgbaston on Tuesday. “If you really have to put pressure on the opposition, it’s important to get their main players out because those are the two pillars of their batting. “Psychologically, that can also give you an advantage and damage the opposition if you can get them early, because other (members of the England) batting line-up are struggling at the moment. “That’s really important for us to just get them (Cook and Root) early and put them (England) under pressure.” James Vince has yet to make a fifty in his seven career Test innings this season and left-hander Gary Ballance is also searching for a big score following his surprise recall for Pakistan’s 75-run win in the series opener at Lord’s. “Throughout my time as captain there’s always been something up for discussion and at the moment it’s the middle order,” said Cook. “Until the guys get good scores consistently that will be the case but [Read More…]
BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur wants to see his “warriors” of Lord’s return for the third Test against England at Edgbaston. The tourists won the first Test at ‘the home of cricket’ by 75 runs, only to see England square the four-match series with a crushing 330-run win at Old Trafford. “We’re going to have to raise our game considerably from Old Trafford — without a doubt,” Arthur told reporters at Edgbaston on Monday. “I was really disappointed with our performance at Old Trafford — really disappointed … with the way we lost there,” the South African added ahead of the third Test, which starts at the Birmingham ground on Wednesday. “There are credible losses, and there are losses when you lie down and are steamrollered … Old Trafford was clearly that. “I told the guys I thought we were warriors at Lord’s. We were completely the opposite at Old Trafford. “We’re doing everything we can to get us back on the right track … and I’m 100 percent (sure) we will be come the first ball on Wednesday. “We had some good, hard conversations around our performance. “So we’ve dissected Manchester, the guys are in good spirits and we’re ready to play again. “The overriding feeling is still one of confidence.” England captain Alastair Cook and Joe Root both made hundreds in Manchester but the rest of the home top order have yet to post a big score this series, with James Vince and Gary Ballance both in need [Read More…]
