In the second match of the ongoing two-match red-ball series between Pakistan and Bangladesh, captain Babar Azam was seen bowling for the first time in International Cricket. The lookouts are excited to see the new sight and are yet debating over the plot.
It was not the first time Azam showed his off-spin tactics in competitive cricket as he had been doing it in U19 and first-class cricket. Although, it was something unique to witness in international cricket, and new to many fans.
Have a look:

Babar Azam bowled for the first time in intl cricket today. Known as Muhammad Babar Azam, he used to bowl regularly at junior level. At the U19 World Cup in 2010, he bowled in every match and took five wickets in six matches. Bowled in three matches in next edition too. #BANvPAK

Excerpt from Day 4 of Pak vs Ban 2nd Test:
After Pakistan declared on 300 following the meet and greet in the second Test, the green bowlers gave critical times to the Tigers’ batters as they collapsed at regular intervals.
Sajid Khan took charge of the bowling line-up dominating with his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket and winded up his Day 4 stats with six wickets at an economy of 2.9 in 12 overs. His spell also counts three maidens.
At Stumps of Day 4, Bangladesh trail by 224 runs being seven down on 76. Sajid, the top-performer of the day, believes Pakistan will windup the game at the earliest. It is pertinent to mention that there are higher chances of the draw following the final day and two innings left yet. Pakistan, however, with their fabulous bowling showcases, are in the game.
