Pak vs Ban 2nd Test: Heroics of Sajid Khan

Pakistan's young off-spin bowler, Sajid Khan has inspired the lookouts with his delighted performance on Day 4 versus Bangladesh. The second Test has been nothing but meet and greet with rain. Pakistan, seeking the conditions and light, declared on 300 losing four men in the first inning. As the home-siders marched on the field to bat, Sajid made sure to things go tricky for them removing Mahmudul Hasan Joy early in the session. He then followed five more Tigers to grip his maiden five-wicket haul in Test Cricket.

Pakistan may not win by the end with high chances of the draw but Sajid, for sure, has made things ignited for the men in green. The lad stole the show leaving the glimpse of win somehow possible by the final day as the conditions look clear to progress with Bangladesh's trail. The tigers have dim chances to be back in the game as they lost wickets at regular intervals. 

Sajid, who delivered three maiden overs during his fabulous spell, was the only bowler to pick wickets on Day 4 as no one other than Hasan Ali contributed more than a run-out. Shaheen Shah Afridi, although was economic, but failed to clutch a wicket. Consequently, Sajid's spell of 2.9 economy is debated all across social forums. 

While opening up on the aggressive approach, he said the plan was shared by skipper Babar Azam and fortunately, it worked out well.

“Bobby Bhai asked us to attack them with a winning approach. I am happy that the plan was executed well and we took their early wickets,”
