england v Pakistan at the sWALeC stadium on 5th sept. 2010 Third umpire – RK Illingworth Scorers – A K Hignell and B Jones


After a thirty minute delay because of morning rain, England invited Pakistan to bat first and the tourists were left to rue a rather indifferent batting performance as they went down to a five wicket defeat. After the early departure of Kamram Akmal, Shahzaib Hasan and Mohammad Yousuf played freely with Shahzaib flicking both Stuart Broad and Tim Bresnan to the long-leg boundary for four as Pakistan reached fifty in the 7th over. However, their progress was stifled as Graeme Swann then had Yousuf caught at cover point before Shahzaib was smartly stumped by wicket-keeper Steve Davies as he advanced down the wicket to the spinner who finished with the commendable figures of 2/14 from his four overs, and together with Yardy put the brake on Pakistan’s progress. Boundaries were far and far between as Umar Akmal and Fawad Alam were restrained before the latter departed in Michael Yardy’s final over as he tamely chipped a ball back to the bowler. Shahid Afridi then struck some withering blows, but his efforts were too late as Pakistan ended on a modest 126/4. The tourists knew that early wickets were essential and Shoaib Akhtar, the experienced pace bowler, struck early as Craig Kieswetter edged an expansive drive into the wicket-keeper’s gloves before Ravi Bopara s lofted a drive to Yousuf at mid-on who took a good catch running back above his head. Shortly afterwards, Afridi entered the attack and bowled Collingwood for four. Two runs later Umar Gul ended Steve Davies’ forthright innings as the opener pulled a ball straight to Wahab Riaz and then six balls later Afridi struck again as he bowled Luke Wright with England slipping to 62/5 at the halfway stage. The decisive moment then came in Afridi’s next over as Eoin Morgan was dropped by Shoaib at backward point. Needing 48 from 48 balls, Michael Yardy then joined Morgan in a match- winning partnership as the former drove Saeed Ajmal for four, before Morgan nurdled the spinner for four before nonchalantly driving Afridi through the covers. Yardy then crisply drove Ajmal for four, before on-driving Shoaib’s final delivery for four as the sixth wicket pair hurried England towards their target. Morgan then settled things by pulling Ajmal for four before swatting Gul fto the boundary boards as the sixth wicket pair calmly added 67 as England strolled to victory with 17 balls to spare and left Pakistan rueing their sluggish batting which had seen just eight boundaries being struck – in contrast, England, scored fifteen fours and their purposeful efforts duly confirmed their standing as world champions.
