Statistics Round Up : Test 3 | Day 1

The 99 AO was the lowest score by Pakistan under Misbah’s captaincy and only the 3rd time the team has been bundled out for under 200 in a test match under him in the 15th tests

38 of the 46 wickets which Pakistan have taken in the series have belonged to the spinners: Ajmal, Rehman and Hafeez with Gul claiming 7 along the way and Cheema taking a solitary wicket in the 1st test opening day here in Dubai when Trott was strangled down the leg side in the morning session

86 wickets have fallen in effectively 8 full days of cricket in this series, meaning on average there has been well over 3 wickets falling per session

All 4 times in this series Misbah ul Haq has been dismissed LBW, 3 times he referred unsuccessfully

Azhar Ali has been caught behind 3 innings out of 4 in this series and has fallen to Broad 3 times and all of the times he has fallen to the pacers which have brought his downfall

Mohammad Hafeez has been trapped LBW 3 times out of 4 in this series

Saeed Ajmal has also been trapped LBW 3 times out of 4 in this series

Pakistan has batted first having won the toss twice under Misbah’s captaincy and won both times. However, the 3 times they have batted first including today they failed to reach 300

Abdur Rehman has fallen to the spin of Graeme Swann 3 times out of 4 in the series including the dismissal today

Younis Khan is the only Pakistan batsman who is yet to register a 50 in the series after 4 innings. However, Bell, Morgan, KP has not done so for England either

Cook has fallen in single digits 4 times out of 5 in the series

The last time England were whitewashed in a test series was in 2006/07 Ashes where they lost humiliatingly 5-0

Sessions: Pakistan 2 England 1
Overall: Pakistan 14 England 10

Proportional Verdict

Pakistan win = 80%
England win = 20%
