Playing quality left-arm spin still remains an Achilles’ heel of most of the Pakistani batsmen. In the last few years, bowlers like Mohammad Rafique, Ashley Giles, Paul Adams and Rangana Herath have met reasonable success against Pakistan in the longer version of the game. Monty Panesar’s ten wickets in the two Tests against Pakistan this summer, takes him to join a band of left-arm spinners who have taken ten of more wickets against Pakistan. India’s Himatlal Mankad still tops with 37 wickets in nine matches. Panesar’s figures of 5-72 in the second innings made him only the sixth English left-arm spinner for the seventh time to take five or more wickets in an innings against Pakistan. The accompanying tables have the complete detials.
