Shabbir Ahmed was called after the first Test against England in Multan. He soon became the joint-fastest Pakistani bowler to 50 Test wickets. His qualities include giving a good amount of bounce, even on lifeless wickets, and bowling from close to the stumps. This allows him to stick to a tight wicket-to-wicket line. He is also a sound exponent of reverse swing. His Test career began in impressive style as well with an eight-wicket haul against Bangladesh in Karachi, on a track that offered no assistance to the pace bowlers and in most performances since, around the world, he has picked up wickets and stemmed the flow of runs.
