England leg-spinner Adil Rashid looks back at the first Test against Pakistan at Abu Dhabi and says that his side always believed that they can win the match right from Day One. The match ended in a draw, with England falling agonisingly short after bad lights stopped play. Rashid, who is making his Test debut for England went wicketless in the first innings but bounced back extremely well to pick up five in the second innings. His spell bundled Pakistan out for 173, leaving England just 99 to chase. Rashid hopes that he and his team can put in similar performances in the second Test at Dubai and go one step further and win it. SCORECARD: Pakistan vs England 2015, 1st Test Day at Abu Dhabi

England skipper Alastair Cook had scored a monumental 263 in England’s first innings to take his team to 598 for 9. Pakistan started off well but lost their way in between and eventually were bowled out cheaply after England had taken a first innings lead of 75. England came out all guns blazing but could not win the match from an improbable position. READ: Alastair Cook proud of England’s efforts on Day 5 of drawn 1st Test vs Pakistan at Abu Dhabi

For Pakistan, Shoaib Malik was the star with the bat, scoring 245 in Pakistan’s first innings. Asad Shafiq too had scored a wonderful century. Mohammad Hafeez scored 98 opening the innings for Pakistan. Pakistan will hope that they put in a better performance in the second Test at Dubai. They almost lost a match from a comfortable position and with their two senior players Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan getting out in an irresponsible manner, questions will surely be asked.
