England frantic to shun Pakistan clean sweep

DUBAI: Spin tired England will be

anxious to shun the embarrassment of a series clean sweep in opposition to Pakistan in the 3rd and last Test which begins at Dubai Stadium on Friday

Andrew Strauss’s men, crushed byPakistan spinners Saeed Ajmal and Abdul Rehman, are also in hazard of losing their world number 1 spot after a miserable 10wicket beat inDubai and the 72 runs surrender inAbu Dhabi.


Pakistan have not at all imposed a Test series clean sweep on England, who crown the Test rankings in August previous year with an undefeated 9 series succession, but have observed 34 of their 40 wickets fall on trip to Pakistan’s spinners.

Off-spinner Ajmal has led the obliteration with 17 scalps while left-armer Rehman has dismissed 12 wickets and Mohammad Hafeez 5 wickets.

Speaking after theAbu Dhabi beat Strauss said his punished team required to bounce back after 2 miserable presentations.

Pakistan has carefully merit their win in the series, he said.

We’ve been underneath where we desire to be and we require coming back and bouncing back powerfully from this.

As a striking component we have to hold our hands up and say we haven’t been good sufficient, it’s been attractive obvious, we require to be good than that, said Strauss, whose previous 100 came 30 months ago.

If you get the point of view, which I feel you’ve taken to, that you learn as much from your beats as you perform from your triumphs then I feel we’ve learned some costly lessons going forward, Strauss said.

It’s not simple in these circumstances, in these conditions but we’re good sufficient players to be capable to regulate to the circumstances we’ve encountered.
