It took until the last day of the last Test yet Pakistan finally dealt with a repeat of England’s 2012 bad dream against spin. They required not as much as half of the overs accessible to finish triumph in Sharjah, Yasir Shah taking the first and last wickets as Pakistan win the series 2-0 by a 127-run edge for that will lift them to No. 2 in the ICC Test rankings.
Alastair Cook opposed very nearly until the end, ninth man out for 63, however his team had been cut hapless amid a confounding first hour when they lost 4 for 11 in five overs. England were aggressive for everything except two sessions in the arrangement however on both events, here and in Dubai, Pakistan were sufficiently merciless to grab the prize.
The conditions were maybe not as deceptive as England’s batsmen made them look however Yasir and Zulfiqar Babar did not require support to go after the smallest wavering or uncertainty. They gathered six of the eight remaining wickets, inspiring the harm incurred by Saeed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman last time around.
With Shoaib Malik taking so as to finish his last Test appearance a seven-wicket pull, it implied Pakistan’s spinners had gathered 9 for 101 in England’s second innings. That was almost half the same number of wickets as England’s trio of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Samit Patel oversaw in the whole series. With 15 from only two Tests, Yasir was surely the best bowler of the series.
Rout by a two-Test edge implies England will slip to No. 6 in the rankings, another UAE reversal after the happiness of Ashes triumph amid the late spring.
Cook confronted more than 900 balls bowled in the arrangement, another half-century taking him clear at the highest point of the run-scorers’ rundown. Be that as it may, such a remarkable individual commitment couldn’t contend with Pakistan’s aggregate brightness.
