Shaharyar Khan salutes restorative Pakistan triumph
LONDON: Pakistan Cricket Board director Shaharyar Khan says his nation’s dazzling triumph over England in the Lord’s Test has reestablished the group’s discolored notoriety.
Yasir Shah was Pakistan’s saint as the leg spinner took 10 wickets in the match to wrap up a 75-run win in the opening Test on Sunday.
It was a cathartic triumph for Pakistan, who were playing their first Test at Lord’s following the scandalous 2010 spot-settling outrage.
That apparatus saw Pakistan left-arm fast Mohammad Amir, together with individual paceman Mohammad Asif and afterward commander Salman Butt, given five-year bans and prison sentences for scheming to purposely bowl no-balls as a major aspect of a daily paper sting operation.
Fittingly, Amir, in his first Test appearance since he was given the suspension, finished the match when he released England’s Jake Ball and Khan rushed to pay tribute to the endeavors of skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and his players.
“The Lord’s win is imperative from numerous points of view and the most huge is that the picture of our cricket is reestablished in more than one path at the venue where it was marked six years prior,” Khan said.
“The group played as a unit and Misbah drove it in an excellent way while the new group administration made an awesome showing with regards to.
“The best part was the backing from Pakistan fans. The entire nation is cheering.”
