Pakistan surprises the England team, the England Fans, the Pakistani Fans and every one that loves cricket. This Series brings lot of cheer to Pakistani camp, not only that also a self believe they can now challenge any team at any condition. This recent form of Pakistan and the efforts, noticed from World cup have now turned Pakistan into new era.
The series was full of record making and breaking flash, but one significant fact that Pakistan has a won a series 3-0 after nine years, in 2003 they won against Bangladesh by 3-0. But now the win matters more as it is against England, the no. 1 Test team of the world cricket. The series clearly belongs to Spin bowling as 48 wickets have been taken by Pakistani spinners, and all praise to them.
“No team becomes No.1 over night, Andrew Strauss”. Well England has been good through out the years but Pakistan bowling department just not put question mark to their greatness but now also put question will England manage to hold their first rank for long. And if it’s the start of Pakistan team towards the journey of England’s current status i.e. no. 1 spot of world rank.
Some of the excellent extract for Pakistan, this series has made. Saeed Ajmal now became the most dependent bowler for Pakistan team, After Danish Kaneria Pakistan has been looking for front line spin bowler, and he proves to be one. The other finding is Abdur Rehman, who is no longer remains a second option; the two 5 wickets haul made him a competitive choice.
Talking about batting no one can neglect the efforts of Azhar Ali in 2nd and 3rd Test. He was solid in defense and made runs that help team to rely on someone steady like him. In the series that dominants by bowlers, Azhar Ali won the Match of the man award today. With Azhar we need to discuss Asad Shafiq’s two knocks under pressure, in 2nd test with Azhar, and in 3rd test when Pakistan was looking to holds the rope.
For the series win, we congratulate Pakistan team and their efforts, as every team mate did his fair of bit in the glorious success. Now fans are looking for ODI series, how strongly England will make a comeback, or will Pakistan able to crush them once again in the battle field sets in UAE.
