The participation of the crowd in the cricket ground shows that the ongoing cricket series between Pakistan and West Indies is on in full swing despite the Pakistani city Multan experiencing hottest weather days of the summer season (“Nawaz grabs four wickets, leads Pakistan to series win over West Indies,” June 11, Gulf Today website).

West Indies stumbled against before left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz as Pakistan recorded a thumping 120-run victory in the second ODI on Friday. On a slow wicket where the ball gripped and spun, Nawaz recorded career-best figures of 4-18 to bowl out the West Indies for 155 with more than 17 overs to spare.

There is a list of great all time spinners Pakistan has produced for example Abdul Qadir, Mushtaq Ahmed, Saqlain Mushtaq, Saeed Ajmal, Danish Kaneria, Yasir Shah and many more, the latest addition of left-arm spinner Muhammad Nawaz is like another star emerging on the Pakistan cricket galaxy. Left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz’s performance in the second One Day International match against West Indies is highly laudable.  

Multan is one of the cities in Pakistan where temperature in the summer especially in the months of June and July reaches 51 Celsius. Right now Multan is experiencing 42 degrees but the cricket crazy nation refused to stay home and watch Pakistan and West Indies cricket series on the television.
