Rehman Inspires Pakistan to Series Victory

Pakistan have achieved one of the most thrilling victory over England, as they defeated the English team by 72  runs and clinched the Test series 2-0. The talk of the day was supreme bowling by Abdur Rehman whose 6 wicket haul was a decider in achieving a stunning victory. He also earned the man of the match.

England batsman were of no clue facing the spinning department, as they remained mostly on the backfoot while facing Ajmal, Hafeez, and Rehman. Rehman remained the top wicket taker with amazing figures of 6-25, also his career best. Earlier in the day Panesar took 6 wickets, and put Pakistan in pressure as England was to chase a modest of total of 145. Only Prior (18), and Strauss (32)were able to go into double figures, while others were in total disarray. 
This continues fairy tale run for Misbah ul Haq, who under his captaincy in recent times has achieved overwhelming success. Pakistan who have never been a good test side, proved their critics wrong. The way he led his team, after so many controversies, and scandals has been able to bring team into streamline.
