DUBAI---Pakistan took a 1-0 lead
in the three-match series against
England after winning by 178 runs
in the second Test in the United
England was chasing a record tar-
get of 491 at Dubai International
Stadium for an unlikely win but was
bowled out for 312 with 6.3 overs to
spare in the final session.
"On a final day of a Test match
in a place like Dubai with the ball
turning so much, two of our really
good spinners are bowling, I thought
they showed great character," Pak-
istan captain Misbah-ul-Haq said
"Overall, I thought our spinners
bowled really well, especially under
pressure in the final session."
England counterpart Alastair Cook
said the third morning was the one
that cost his team after losing seven
wickets for 36 runs to finish 136
behind at the end of the first innings.
"Those two or three hours put us
right on the back foot," Cook said.
"But the character we showed
today---I think it is the longest Pak-
istan has ever bowled in the fourth
innings. It was a good day for us but
it was disappointing we didn't quite
get over the line."
England started the final day at
130-3 and was reduced to 193-7
when Ben Stokes was out in the 35th
over of the day. That left Pakistan
with what seemed like an easy task
of taking the last three wickets with
more than three hours remaining.
But Adil Rashid showed off his
ability as a batsman after a forget-
table match as a leg-spinner. His
technique was immaculate on a pitch
taking plenty of turn and he found
able partners in Stuart Broad (30)
and Mark Wood (29).
Rashid made his maiden Test 50
in a career that is only two matches
old. However, he will rue the expan-
sive cover drive he attempted off
Yasir Shah that was caught by Zul-
He added 60 runs for the eighth
wicket with Broad (30) and then 55
for the ninth wicket with Wood (29),
which defied Pakistan for 29.2 overs.
Spinners Babar (3-53) and Shah
(4-87) did most of the damage for
When England resumed the day
their hopes rested mainly on
overnight batsman Joe Root.
Root defended for almost an hour
against fast bowler Wahab Riaz
before becoming the first to go,
caught in the slips by Younis Khan
off Babar for 71 as England moved
Jonny Bairstow soon followed,
clean bowled by Shah for 22, and
England was quickly six down for
178 when the out-of-form Jos Buttler
nibbled at Shah's leg-spinner and
edged it to Younis again in the slips.
Stokes did not last long after lunch
and chased a wide delivery from
Imran Khan into the hands of Mis-
bah for 13 with the score on 193.
The first match in Abu Dhabi was
drawn while the final Test will be
played in Sharjah starting Saturday.

Chris Harris, the former New
Zealand spinner, told Southwark
Crown Court how Chris Cairns
"almost seemed like he was not
pleased" when his team, Chandigarh
Lions, beat Mumbai Champs in a Indi-
an Cricket League contest in March
2008 that has since been tainted with
allegations of match-fixing.
Cairns, who denies two counts of
perjury and perverting the course of
justice, had worn an "unusual" expres-
sion on his face at the moment of vic-
tory in Hyderabad, according to Harris,
after Chandigarh's wicketkeeper, Sarabjit
Singh, had cracked 41 not out from 22
balls to seal a two-wicket victory in the
final over of the match.
The match has previously been iden-
tified by Lou Vincent, who gave evi-
dence during the first week of the trial,
as one of "three or four" fixtures that
he had been paid by Cairns to manip-
Harris, who played in all three ICL
tournaments in 2007 and 2008,
described Chandigarh's target of 136 as
"modest", adding that Sarabjit had
played a "splendid innings" to rescue
his team from 70 for 6 in the 13th over.
However, he also recalled "a number
of strange incidents" in the course of
In the end, Sarabjit sealed the match
with a six, and footage of the winning
moment was played by Orlando Pow-
nall, QC, Cairns' defence lawyer, to the
court. In it, Cairns was seen smiling
and embracing one of his team-mates.
"It's perfectly plain, that after that
six went over the boundary, the Chandi-
garh Lions appeared to be delighted,"
said Mr Pownall. "Do you agree?"
"I don't believe that was the footage
I saw," Harris replied. "I would agree
with you that was a fair amount of
emotion after winning a game."
Harris, who was captain of Hyderabad
Heroes, also recalled a match against
Chandigarh in which Cairns had won
the toss and batted first, despite the
fact that 80 percent of the teams that
bowled first had won on that particular
ground. "It was a bit of a surprise to
me," he recalled.
Harris also claimed that Cairns' co-
defendant and former attorney, Andrew
Fitch-Holland, who denies perverting
the course of justice during his client's
libel action against Lalit Modi in 2012,
had admitted Cairns' guilt even before
that case went to court.
Cairns successfully sued Modi after
he tweeted allegations of match-fixing
in 2010. However, Harris claimed that,
during a Lashings game at Bromley
Cricket Club, Fitch-Holland had con-
ceded Cairns' guilt in a conversation
with a group of players.
"Someone asked him a question
along the lines of "poor Cairnsy, what's
up with Cairnsy?", Harris told the court.
"Mr Fitch-Holland, to my surprise,
replied Cairnsy's guilty'."
Sasha Wass, QC, the crown prose-
cutor asked Harris to clarify whether
this conversation had taken place before
or after the libel action.
Harris replied: "I believe it was
before." However, under cross-exam-
ination from Mr Pownall, Harris con-
ceded that he may have been mistaken,
as his name had not appeared on the
records for any Lashings match at
Bromley in 2009.
"That possibly could be the case,"
The comment, it was suggested, may
have related to Cairns' marital problems.
The trial will continue from 12 noon
