Ben Duckett admits that Ahmed bowled well during the 3-Test series against England
England batsman Ben Duckett has downplayed Pakistan's Abrar Ahmed as a "leg-spinner" and not a mystery bowler.
Despite this, Duckett admits that Ahmed bowled well during the 3-Test series against England, where he took seven wickets in his debut match and finished with 17 wickets overall.
Duckett also acknowledged that Ahmed had a "good googly." Ahmed was also selected for the 2-Test series against New Zealand, where he picked up 11 wickets.
While Duckett feels that the 24-year-old is not a mystery bowler, he admitted that Abrar “bowled beautifully” and has a “good googly”.
“He was basically a leg-spinner who had a good googly. There was no real mystery to it, but he bowled beautifully,” the 28-year-old said.
Ahmed will now play for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which will take place from February 13 to March 19 in Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Rawalpindi.
Islamabad United will begin their PSL 8 campaign against the Karachi Kings on February 16.
