England All Out in 46.1 Overs.
Pakistan have squared the series with a 38-run win, and their satisfaction is evident. Shoaib is hopping around like a youngster! We will be heading to the Rose Bowl on Wednesday with this series well and truly alive. It seemed as though off-field distractions had finally caught up with Pakistan as they struggled through a lacklustre first innings before Abdul Razzaq’s late rollicking cameo boosted their score into competitiveness.
Andrew Strauss and Steve Davies then gave England a great platform with a positive 113-run opening stand but once they were separated Pakistan kept chipping away, knowing that reverse swing could prove decisive at the close of the innings under lights. Against the odds, they’re clawed their way back from 2-0 and, with everything that’s occurred off the field, there is bound to be continued interest ahead of the final game of the series. Stick with us for the post-match interviews and Man of the Match award.
