Pakistan butchers English bowlers!

Akays tour diaries

Pakistani batsmen showed their dangerous sides as Pakistan produced a convincing victory against their beleagured opponents. The game also marked a return of international cricket to the cricket-mad port city of Karachi.

Kamran Akmal produced a stunning century, his second in a row and used that to set up a comfortable platform for the big-hitters to continue the onslaught. Yousuf scored a relatively patient 68, before Inzamam (45 of 35), Afridi (31 of 14) and last but surely not the least Abdul Razzaq (51 of 22) meant that Pakistan reached a monstrous total of 353 for the loss of 6 wickets in their alotted 50 overs.

England had a wobbly start losing their first three batsmen for 40 runs within the first 8 overs, and never really recovered from that. The visitors finished their innings at 188 all out, losing by a margin of 165 runs, their heaviest defeat in one-day cricket.
