BIRMINGHAM: During the question answer session, one Pakistani reporter did not think his heroic performance was enough.
So he offered Khan some unsolicited advice; told him to learn English in his free time, instead of focusing on cricket. In a reply, Khan let his humility speak for him.
Sohail Khan washed off all the doubts among Pakistan supporters and proved to be ‘surprise weapon’ for English batsmen, who probably were confident to dominant third Test too.
Keeping the line and length tighten, Sohail Khan has made batters make mistakes. His passion, pace and discipline has made him man of the day.
Sohail Khan took five-for, removing, Alex Hales (17), Joe Root (3), Vince (39) and Jonny Bairstow (12) and Finn (5).
With his destructive spells, the right-arm quickie has put visitors on the driving seat of the game.
The hero of first innings at Edgbaston, Sohail Khan was all smile and relax when he came out with bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed for presser. However, a reporter’s dig at his English skills took him off guard.
