...on that? England in subcontinent conditions against a side that had lost one of their previous 15 one day internationals and had just stuffed them three zip in the test series.
...a one day game at that? England beat Pakistan for the first time on this tour. What's going off out there?
...with style. England really put on the style to be whitewashed by Pakistan in the recent three match test series in the UAE.
...to a new level. Just when they were thinking the last test match was just a blip they go and surpass it. I wonder if they'll learn from this or just take the positives.
...yeah I know...they'll probably take the positives from it as well. Is there anyone out there think the England cricket team will learn anything from this humiliating capitulation to Pakistan in Dubai?
...is the most shocking thing. Is it any real shock that members of the Pakistan cricket team have been implicated in a betting scam as a middle man took £150k and the no-balls followed.
...mistake. They don't win World Cup finals at cricket, they got there years back and then were just pipped at the post but recently they've been embarrassed early on but not now. And the Aussies look less and less invincible.
...Shep. Sad news yesterday that one of the best and most admired cricket umpires David Shepherd has died after his battle with cancer.
...from terrorists. Imran Khan was so sure of it, I think he was the only one but I doubt he thinks that way now after the Sri Lankan tourists were attacked in Lahore.
...just down the road from Pakistan, bring your own whites. While the authorities are still trying to find out everything that happened in Bombay and the locals are coming to terms with it why not put more lives at risk for a game.
England beat Argentina 3-2 in a friendly in Geneva, with goals from Wayne Rooney And Michael Owen the rugby union team beat Australia 26-16 and Marcus Trecothick score a hundred against Pakistan as England take command in Multan.
