County Championship 2021

Watch: Pakistan spinner Zafar Gohar takes bizarre wicket in yet another county five-for

by Wisden Staff 1 minute read

Pakistan left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar continued his fine form with Gloucestershire in the County Championship with a match-winning haul of 6-51 in his side’s Division Two victory over Durham in their final game of the season.

Gohar – who went wicketless in his sole Test outing against New Zealand early this year – enjoyed a productive stint with Gloucestershire taking 17 wickets in his last three innings for the club. In the win over Durham, Gohar took 11 wickets in the match as Gloucestershire secured a seven-wicket win that secured them second place in Division Two.

Gohar’s sixth and final second innings wicket was a fortuitous one. Durham’s Liam Trevaskis’ sweetly struck sweep cannoned off short leg Tom Lace’s knee, before the ball ballooned up for James Bracey to take a straightforward catch.

There was initial concern for Lace but he was given the all clear soon after, taking to Twitter after play to make light of the incident.
