[Cricket] England v Pakistan: Natwest Series Challenge

Right my turn to start a cricket thread

The first in the three match series get underway tomorrow at Old Trafford, the action starts at 2.30 as it is a day/night match.

Not much news so far apart from the fact that the Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has called on his side's supporters to behave during the upcoming one-day international series against England. Story
here

The other two match's are:

June 20th The Oval
June 22nd at Lords

There then follows the Natwest Series against Zimbabwe and South Africa.

England should be really looking to beat a new formed Pakistan team which is full of youngsters,

Pakistan played Scotland last Saturday and nearly got beat!

Should be interesting as both teams have alot of new and young players in their teams.

195-9 off 48 overs. They started off so well, 45 off the first 6 or so overs but seem to have slowed to a crawl. Not giving the Pakistanis much of a challenge, and certainly leaving the bowlers with a hell of a lot of work to do

And England finish on 204-9, a pretty poor performance, I will be surprised if that is a winning score

Rikki Clarke has just struck with his first ball,Pakistan are 60-1.

Too slow paul .Chris Read's doing a good job behind the stumps.The required rate is 4.55,Pakistan are getting 3.48 a over,they need 132 from 29 overs.

Still, 10 overs to go, so 5 an over might be enough to make them start doing something stupid.

Pakistan win by 2 wickets.

A good performance by the England bowlers who were let down by the batting. Michael Vaughan's decision to bowl Ricky Clarke for the penultimate over has to be questioned as well.

Lets hope for better on Friday.
