Quick Updates: Pakistan Vs England T20 #1

After losing to their respective 'A' teams , it was time for the battle of losers, I mean, Pakistan Vs England at the newly constructed cricket stadium at Dubai. There were hardly any spectators at the ground. In fact,even a gully cricket in India would fetch more spectators. So, Malik won the toss and without any hesitations,opted to bat .
The attacking,aggressive pair(its a joke :)) for Pak, Imran Nazir and Imran Farhat opened the innings. Nazir was in his own world, wonder what was going on his mind then. He perished after scoring a mammoth 2(15). Pakistan were 20 odd for the loss of 2 wickets at the end of powerplay . Quite a score. Wickets kept falling regularly . Malik and Razzaq tried to resurrect the innings but in vain. Pakis managed to score a mere 129 runs . Malik top scored with 33 runs.
England opened with Denly and Trott who got out cheaply . Colly gave company to them in the pavilion after 5 mins. Morgan and KP( finally!!) steered Poms to an easy victory.
Peitersen was finding his lost touch , whereas Morgan sent all guns blazing. Am sure, VJ Mallya was watching him . Eoin Morgan is proving to be an awesome find for the Poms with his aggressive batting down the order and excellent fielding. Looks like KP found his form. Good for Bengalooru Royal Challengers. Morgan was, undoubtedly , the man of the match for his aggressive 67(51).

P.S - Boom Boom returns next match :)
