Summary

  • By AFP LONDON: Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed believes his side can hit even greater heights against England in the second Test at Headingley despite a nine-wicket win in the series opener at Lord’s.
  • Victory, completed inside four days at the ‘home of cricket,’ put Pakistan 1-0 up with one to play and on the verge of a first series win in England since fast bowling greats Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis starred in a 1996 success.
  • Pakistan were widely acknowledged to have outplayed England in all departments at Lord’s in the first Test of the current campaign but wicket-keeper Sarfraz has urged them not to rest their laurels.
  • Sarfraz is well aware of what it would mean to emulate Pakistan’s series win in England 22 years ago.
  • “The last time we won a series in England was in 1996, when Wasim and Waqar were around, and we drew at Leeds then,” he added.
