PAK vs ENG: Zahid Mehmood hit such a dangerous six that even the 7 fielders from England were stunned.
New Delhi: The match has become interesting on the fourth day of the first Test being played between Pakistan and England. Pakistan scored 579 runs in the first innings in response to 657 runs. On the fourth day, while batting brilliantly, Agha Salman scored a brilliant half-century in the lower order, while Zahid Mahmood also looted the gathering by hitting two fours and a six. Mahmood hit such a dangerous six that even the 7 fielders deployed by England were stunned.
7 fielders ripped sixes
This sight was seen in the 149th over. Pakistan’s 8 wickets had fallen for 556 runs. Zahid Mahmood was playing after scoring 5 runs in 38 balls. England felt that Zahid could be easily surrounded. That’s why Jack Leach put 7 fielders near him. As soon as Leach bowled the fifth ball of the over, Zahid Mahmood picked up his bat and smashed it over mid-wicket for a six that made the bat crackle.

That ball was a bit high, otherwise the fielder of short leg and silly mid-on would have got hurt. This six was so dangerous that the English camp just kept watching. The special thing is that this was the first six of Mahmood’s Test career. Zahid Mahmood got out after scoring 17 runs in 48 balls. He was shown the way to the pavilion by Will Jacques stumped by Ollie Pope.
Pakistan got the target of 343 runs
Talking about the match, England declared the innings by scoring 267 runs in the second innings. Pakistan has been given a target of 343 runs to win. Two Pakistan batsmen have been dismissed for 42 runs while Azhar Ali has returned from the field after retiring hurt. It will be interesting to see how the match takes a turn from here.
