His century (102) and three half-centuries no doubt played a significant role in Pakistan’s domination in the series. That combined with his cool and calculated leadership even when his team briefly struggled in the second and third Test tells the whole story of Pakistan’s triumphant march to beat an Ashes-winning team which came to the UAE well geared up to maintain their ranking above Pakistan.
