Ex-Pakistan pace bowler Aaqib Javed has predicted that spinner Abrar Ahmed will be a flop in the England series and Test cricket in general.
Revealing why, he pointed out that it is very rare for a mystery spinner to have incredible success in the longest format.
Abrar has been tearing up the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he is the highest wicket-taker with 43 victims in seven matches for Sindh at an average 21.95.
While the 24-year-old has been dominating in domestic cricket, Aaqib doesn’t see him enjoying the same success in Test cricket.
“Very unlikely I have seen any mystery spinner getting success in Test cricket,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan will kick off their three-Test series against England on December 1.
