That is it from this game! Not the most powerful England side on paper but they proved otherwise on the pitch and have thumped Pakistan to take a 1-0 lead in this 3-match series. The visitors will be extremely disappointed with their showing in this game and will look to put this loss behind them and bounce back stronger. Join us on Saturday, 10th July for the second game of the series as the action moves from Cardiff to London. The first ball will be at 11 am local time (10 am GMT) but you can join us in advance for the build-up. We hope to see you for that one. Till then goodbye and take care!
SAQIB MAHMOOD IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! The speedster says that as a team they want to win games and as an individual, they look to contribute in those wins. Maqsood says that he just looked to assess the condition and was trying to hit the right lengths. Further adds that with the attacking field, he was looking to get wickets. He hopes the guys can take confidence from this into the next game.
England skipper, Ben Stokes says that it was a clinical performance. Tells any game where you have the opposition 4 down early is a positive. Stokes says that the new group always thrives to get the first win. Tells they did not get under pressure today but expects it to happen sooner in the series but says the boys are ready. Stokes says he just told them to play like they play for their county and enjoy themselves. Stokes says they cannot live off this performance as it will be a new day.
Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam, says that they lost early wickets and hence they did not get a big total. Credits the England bowlers as well. Babar feels they did not misread the condition but credits England bowlers and admits they failed to build partnerships. Babar smiles and says Fakhar Zaman and Sohaib Maqsood's performance were positive. Azam says they are looking forward to the next game and will try their best to get back on level terms.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Pakistan needed a miracle from their bowlers but that didn't happen. They bowled too many extras upfront and managed to pick a solitary wicket of Philip Salt. Playing the role of an opener, Dawid Malan showed good hands and along with debutant Zak Crawley, he formed a century stand. Their partnership didn't allow any sniff to Pakistan as England cruised to a commanding win.
A stroll in the park for England. They have registered a clinical win to thump Pakistan in the first game of the series. Everything went well for them right from the beginning. Saqib Mahmood set the tone by striking twice in the very first over of the match and from thereon, it was all England. Pakistan failed to recover from those blows and were always playing catch-up. Fakhar Zaman did give them some hope with his fine strokes but he didn't last long and the touring team managed only a paltry total on the board.
