This bowler has played Test and ODI cricket for Pakistan and is now doing wonders with his balls in the County Championship.
Zafar Gauhar performed brilliantly in the County Championship
Currently, the County Championship Division-2 match is being played between Glamorgan and Gloucestershire at Sophia Gordons Ground in Cardiff. In this match, a bowler has made it difficult for the batsmen to stay on the wicket. The name of this bowler is Zafar Gohor. This spinner from Gloucestershire did not allow Glamorgan’s batsmen to gain a foothold on the wicket. He did this feat in the second innings of the team. By the end of the third day, Glamorgan have lost six wickets in their second innings and scored 57 runs. Zafar has taken three wickets out of these six. He has so far bowled 10 overs in this innings, out of which six overs are maiden and only seven runs have been spent. However, Zafar did not get any wicket in the first innings. In the first innings, he bowled 17 overs and conceded 47 runs including two maidens but could not take wickets.
It is Glamorgan’s play after the last day of the match and given the kind of rhythm Zafar is showing, Glamorgan’s batsmen can be in trouble. The team is currently 53 runs behind Gloucestershire and has only four wickets left. The crisis of defeat by innings is looming on him. Zafar is a left-arm spinner from Pakistan. He has played one Test and one ODI for Pakistan. Glamorgan has lost the wickets of Hamish Rutherford (17), David Lloyd (17), Nick Selman (0), Eddie Byrom (8), Kieran Carlson (0), captain Chris Cook (6). Apart from Zafar, David Payne, Ryan Higgins and Gram van Buren took one wicket each.
