England vs Pakistan 1st Test: 29 July-2 August, 2010
Day 4
Ah, wickets kept tumbling and Pakistan were bowled out for 80. Jimmy Anderson, with his swing, grabbed 6 wickets in the 2nd innings and 5 out of 7 on Day 4. This was Jimmy's first 10 wicket haul in a match. Finn only bowled 2 overs and removed Kamran Akmal and Mohammad Amir. Oh well, I'm quite confused about his name's spelling, it's written as Aamer, Amir and Aamir. England won this game by a huge margin, 354 to be exact, exactly as much as they scored in the 1st innings. I don't see how Pakistan could win any Test with this batting line-up. Mohammad Yousuf refused to comeback after consulting his "elders" when Afridi asked him to do so. But they should still bring back Younis Khan. And Yaseer Hameed is in the squad, he should play the 2nd Test.

MOM: James Anderson

The next Test begins at 10 am GMT at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Friday. Until next time, take care. Cheers! 


  1. You must be one happy girl now aren't you?

  1. Oh yes, I am. But this was an easy victory. It was good to see Jimmy fetch so many wickets. Jimmy does well when the ball swings but I'd like to see him perform when it doesn't swing as well, like against Australia in Ashes later this year.
