Zak Crawley reacts to first Test hundred

Zak Crawley produced a magnificent maiden international century then drove on to 171 not out to dominate the first day of England’s series deciding third Test against Pakistan. The 22-year-old, who had a top score of 76 in his first seven appearances, admitted last week that he had been dreaming about making a hundred for his country and “pinched himself” at the thought.His hopes became reality as he led the side to 332 for four at Ageas Bowl with a deliciously elegant innings that saw him master the touring attack for the majority of the day, hitting 19 boundaries and facing 269 deliveries.
