Test Cricket - England vs. Pakistan

I'm not even going to start to explain the rules (!), but England are currently playing Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in a 3 match Test Series. Why in the UAE? Well that's nearly as complicated to explain, but Pakistan are the 'home' team and currently play all their home matches in the UAE.

Basically, each Test Match takes place over 5 days and as England played so badly they lost within 3 days! Really bad to watch, but here are a few images from the game.

1. E Morgan, out LBW to Rehman in the 2nd innings, with the Pakistan fielders appealing for the dismissal

2. Andrew Strauss, England Captain, out LBW to Gul in the 2nd innings

3. Jonathan Trott taking the wicket of Younis Khan

4. Mohammad Hafeez hits a 6 against Swann

5. Matt Prior cover driving for 4 in the 1st innings

6. Stumping attempt in England's 1st innings

7. E Morgan, out in the 1st innings, LBW to Ajmal

8. Another sweep shot for 4, bowler is Graham Swann, with wicketkeeper Matt Prior and slip fielder Jimmy Anderson looking on

9. But a bit of revenge for Swann, trapping Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq LBW a couple of balls later
