- Third Test, day three: Pakistan 304 & 216; England 354 & 112-2
- Spinner becomes youngest to take five-for on men’s Test debut
On a tour of Pakistan that has thrown up an abundance of magical moments for England’s rejuvenated Test team, it may well be that the sight of Rehan Ahmed dropping to the dusty soil of Karachi to offer a prayer of thanks topped the lot.
Aged 18 years and 128 days, Ahmed had just broken the record held by Australia’s Pat Cummins as the youngest men’s Test cricketer to claim a five-wicket haul on debut. Better still, 48 hours on from hailing the best day of his life, he had set his team on course for what would be a first series clean sweep in Pakistan.
