England record historic whitewash against Pakistan

Pakistan has been whitewashed in the Test series for the first time on their home soil. England registered cake walk eight-wicket victory in the first session of Day 4 to complete the 3-0 whitewash.

England touring Pakistan after 16 years, bagged an intense 74 and 26 runs win in the previous two matches. Before the series, England had managed only two wins in 24 attempts against Pakistan in test matches.

Requiring just 55 runs on Day 4, Stokes and Duckett didn’t take long to seal the victory. Duckett remained unbeaten for 82 from 78 balls, while Stokes made 35.

England, bowling out Pakistan for 304 runs in the first inning, gained 50 run lead after Harry Brook’s special ton. Pakistan then were wrapped up for 216 runs, courtesy 18 years old Rehan Ahmed who became the youngest player to take a fifer in debut. The visitors then chased a target of 167 in just 28.1 overs.


Harry Brook was adjudged as player of the match for his century. He was also awarded player of the series scoring 468 in the series. He went past David Gower (449 runs in 1983) to become the top run-getter in a Test series in Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Ben Stokes grabbed ninth win in the last Ten matches as a test captain. Pakistan now has five days of rest before facing New Zealand in the home ground itself.
