In the first innings, Shoaib Bashir’s stint as a batter for England lasted for 2 balls only. When Ollie Robinson got out for 58 off 96 balls, England were 347/8. As Shoaib Bashir came to bat, England fans hoped for a bigger score as English lower-order batters had done it in the past.

However, the British youngster of Pakistani origin threw his wicket away. As Ravindra Jadeja was bowling the fourth delivery of his already-successful over, Shoaib tried to hit it out of the park. But, he managed to scoop it to Rajat Patidar and went back to the pavilion for a duck.

Shoaib’s brief stay at the crease, nevertheless, left a moment of fun for cricket fans, thanks to the stump mic. Sarfaraz Khan was heard saying, “Isko to Hindi nahi aati hain (He doesn't know Hindi)". He was apparently referring to Shoaib Bashir while speaking to Ravindra Jadeja.

To that, Shoaib Bashir replied, “Thodi thodi aati hain Hindi (I know a bit of Hindi)." Jadeja was seen laughing after that.
