Pakistan’s left-arm spinner, Zafar Gohar, picked up six wickets in the second innings as Gloucestershire defeated Glamorgan by ten wickets in the second division of the County Championship.
Gohar went wicketless in the first innings as Glamorgan managed to score 309. Gloucestershire’s batting line-up responded with a splendid display as they posted over 400 runs for the first time in the current season.
With a lead of 115 in the first innings, Gloucestershire dismantled Glamorgan’s batting unit in the second innings and bowled them out for 124. Gohar was the star of the show as he ripped through their batting line-up, picking up the wickets of their top-order batsmen, Hamish Rutherford, Nick Selman, and Kiran Carlson, in quick succession.
Gohar then wrapped up lower-order batsmen as he finished with figures of 43/6 in 18 overs in the second innings. Gloucestershire chased down the target of 15 runs with ease.
The left-arm spinner has been impressive in his short stint in the County Championship. He has picked up 9 wickets at an average of 20.66 in the three matches he has played so far in the campaign.
Gohar will be seen in action in Gloucestershire’s final encounter of the campaign against Durham on 21 September. Gloucestershire currently sits at the second spot in the County Championship Division 2 and will be looking to overtake the leaders, Essex, in the final match of the campaign.
