Pakistan bundled out England for just 281 runs in the first innings of the second Test on Friday.

Pakistan's leg-spinners Abrar Ahmed and Zahid Mahmood took all 10 wickets of England's innings on the first day of the second Test.

The dazzling pair of Zahid and Abrar combined to script history in Test cricket.

Zahid and Abrar paired to pick 10 wickets in 41.4 overs and became the fastest spin duo to bundle out the entire opposition in Tests.

Back in 1952 i.e 70 years ago, England's spinners snapped all of the 10 wickets of Indian innings in 43.5 overs in Kanpur.

In 2021, West Indies spinners took all 10 wickets of Sri Lankan innings in 45.3 overs in Galle.

Meanwhile, Abrar and Zahid wreaked havoc in Multan. Abrar picked 7/114 while Zahid snared 3/63 to restrict England to paltry 281. Pakistan's third spinner Mohammad Nawaz also bowled 12 overs but remained wicketless.

In 1999 India's star leg-spinner Anil Kumble scripted history when he clinched a 10-wicket hall against Pakistan.
