It’s the second consecutive win for team England, Pakistan batting first posted a total of 251 to defend for the English side, and in return England reached the milestone created by Pakistan at 47.3 overs.
Joe root was the man of the match and he on the presentation ceremony, as we all know the way he plays is just remarkable and in the recent past he has made some remarkable performance for the team that makes him the man of spirits.
“Yeah it’s alright. I’ve never seen Rash tackle me like that. Yeah definitely [jokingly asked if that tackle warranted a red card]. I’ll be fine. Throughout we managed to rotate nicely and stayed in touching distance to D/L. The running was fine today with the skipper, had more issues with Jos. It was clearly my fault. Shouldn’t be a problem, should be fine for Trent Bridge.”
The captain of the England team was very happy for the remarkable win and expressed it in:
“A clinical performance. Our bowlers made the new ball talk, the conditions dictated that. Moving forward, it’s important to keep finding ways to take wickets. All I know is we are playing some very good cricket at the moment, and it’s important to not take things for granted. Fielding is one thing we’ll try to improve, we are better than what we have shown so far. Batting with Joe is awesome, he’s batting on a different level to the others at the moment.”
The captain of Pakistan on this account noted up a remarkable speech saying:
“Guys really worked hard and kept fighting. 2/3 is not the start you want, but scoring a hundred from there, I think it was one of the best hundreds I’ve seen from him [Sarfraz]. To recover from there was brilliant but still if you have to win games, you need to score 300. I think we have the capability, just need to apply ourselves. If we can have good partnerships in the middle and at the start, we can easily get 300. We’d like to find a combination so as to bat deep and have the bowling attack as well. We got a lot of positives and I think we are on the right track.”
