What a comeback by England!

When the series started between Pakistan & England in UAE, every one believed that Pakistan will be at loosing side in all forms of cricket against England, but Pakistan did Vice-varsa & clinch the test series by 3-0 ,

In ODI series peoples thought that now Pakistan can win the ODI series as well,, but no it is again Pakistan played again Vice-varsa about nations expectations 7& lost the series by 3-0, may be a whitewash in ODi series, but no one can predict on Pakistan,

Stand out performances of the series are Cook’s two consecutive Hundreds & Finn’s exceptional Bowling, it was the difference between the two teams, & i can not neglect the performance of Ravi Bopara as cool as he played against spin of Pakistan its superb show by England in 1st three ODIs
