Pakistan born Australian leg-spiner Fawad Ahmed breaks domestic record

HOBART: Pakistan-born Fawad Ahmed has broken a domestic first-class cricket finals record in Australia, as he took eight wickets in the final.

The leg-spinner representing Victoria in the final of the Sheffield Shield against Western Australia, took eight wickets for 89 runs.

Western Australia posted 421 before being bowled out midway through day two on Sunday at Bellerive Oval.

Legspinner Ahmed, a naturalised Australian who fled Pakistan in 2009 and claimed asylum, took the wickets of opener Marcus Harris (81), Sam Whiteman (72), Michael Klinger (18) and Shaun Marsh (six), along with four tailenders who were each dismissed in single figures.
