**Official** Pakistan and England in the UAE 2015/16

Wasn't great but also wasn't that bad by England. Wicket was getting lower and seemed to be skidding on under lights so hard for the bats to get under it. Pakistan bowled well. Root's last 15 or so deliveries was the only really bad thing in the innings.

Btw, despite England being crap at hitting, I think it might be safe to say now that it's clear how big an impact 4 players outside the circle had in those crazy powerplays we regularly got in the last 2-3 years.
yeah will try to find some stats but seems like rate is coming down than that used to be in last ten. maybe teams need to change their approach and replanning is required

If Taylor had hit that hundred I'm sure people would say not kicking on was his fault. Same story as back then though, middle order didn't do the business.

Serious bullcrap about Root and Buttler not being able to hit out mind, they didn't on this occasion but did so plenty of times during the summer and before. Maybe the death bowling had something to do with it? Not everything is tactics and selection just because that's the easiest thing to comment on.

this is probably enough against the rabble that is Pakistan's batting, but this is a great example of why England's inability to play modern day ODI cricket comes up again and again. Just a boring pedestrian team. How do you not make 300 considering where they were placed?
love you Jono, but lets be honest India would have struggled to get 270 here. Imagine Axar trying to smash Riaz and Irfan.:D

No comments from England fans in the last half an hour or so, we must be doing well

Pakistan 11/2 after 6, well, how bout that

Probably doesn't matter now.

When it rains it pours for Woakes. Probably got lucky on the first two but the Ali wicket was a textbook cutter, very much the deliberate outcome

What an absolute disgrace this is from Pakistan, the legends of the 90s will be turning in their graves watching this inept ****e,
