It took England only three days to defeat Pakistan most thoroughly in the second Test Match at Old Trafford.

The injury-ridden Pakistan team collapsed not one, but twice as England wrapped the game by an inning and 120 runs. Final scores: Pakistan (119 and 222); England (461). But injury is really no excuse for the way the Pakistan team simply collapsed both innings. The pitch was bad, but no worse than it was for the English side.

The featured picture (above) shows the English team appealing (successfully) for the dismissal of Inzamam-ul-Haq in teh second innings (he had scored a duck in the first).

I also found this other rather interesting picture of signage in Urdu that was posted on the ground to keep Pakistani fans — who can often become over-enthusiastic — to stay away from the field.

In this case, unfortunately, there was not much to be enthusiastic about for the Pakistani fans.

  1. That was very bad time. Pakistani player performance was nill and shameful. The problem of injury and pitch was not so tough that Pakistani player lost by 120 runs and an innings. Actually Pakistani tema was suffering and still from lack of management adn captaincy. PCB must take actions and assure the merit.
