Jubilation for England and Pakistan: What a Pak vs. Eng Test Match Looked Like
When Pakistan and England face each other in the first test match of their tour, nobody expected the match to be so close and last so long.
In fact, nobody expected Pakistan to play as well as they did!
England, the home team, won the test match by nine wickets with more than two days to spare in what was set to be an engrossing contest between the two best teams in world cricket.
The first day was dominated by pakistan who managed to take four wickets but their bowling lacked bite on the second day as england quickly piled up runs.
Yesterday, the first day of the five-match test series between Pakistan and England at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham was a memorable day for cricket enthusiasts from both countries.
Despite rain interrupting play early on, the action that ensued was electric with all players giving it their all to win the bragging rights of being better than the other team.
Some good news from the cricket world!
The first test match between England and Pakistan in over five years was concluded with a draw yesterday,
which is excellent news because it means that more matches will be scheduled in the future.
This is also good because the Pakistani team needs to get some practice before they go up against India next month,
which will be their first tour of India since 1989!
In the first innings of the match, Pakistan scored 328 runs while England managed just 274 runs before they were bowled out in 44 overs on day three of the five-day test match.
That was good enough to leave them trailing by 54 runs with two days left to play.
in order to tie things up again at 5-5; otherwise they’ll come away empty handed once again.
Today, we celebrate the end of a long hard fought test match between England and Pakistan.
It was an intense battle that tested both teams strengths and weaknesses in depth, with the final score at 280 runs to 169 runs in favour of the English team.
With this victory, they have now secured their place in the semi finals of the ICC World Cup 2019 which will be held in July this year.
The game was played at Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds, Yorkshire.
