Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 6th 2015 Contents as England limped to 59-6.
England had lost four wickets
for just 13 runs as Misbah deployed
his two frontline spinners from the
onset after England resumed at
Shah trapped Joe Root for lbw
off a delivery which kept very low
denying the batsman a chance to
add to his overnight score of six.
Jonny Bairstow followed Root
in similar fashion to another bril-
liant Shah delivery, before Babar
got the outside edge of James Tay-
lor s bat and also had Samit Patel
lbw off his first ball.
Adil Rashid and Cook provided
some stability by adding 49 runs
before Rahat Ali struck and
knocked back Rashid s stumps as
England limped to 120-7 by
Cook was the only batsmen who
negotiated Shah s long spell, and
after surviving a confident lbw
appeal off Babar, held one end up
before the innings folded after
Shah had Stuart Broad smartly
snapped at square leg by Malik
and also had last man Ben Stokes
stumped on a tricky turning wicket
down the leg-side.
The five match one-day inter-
national series between both sides
begins in Abu Dhabi on November
11 before both teams also compete
in two Twenty20s. (AP)

SHARJAH---Pakistan defeated Eng-
land by 127 runs after leg-spinner Yasir
Shah claimed 4-44 on the last day of
the fifth and final Test, yesterday.
England, needing 284 runs for victory
on a deteriorating wicket, was bowled
out for 156 after lunch yesterday as
Pakistan jumped to No. 2 in the Test
rankings with a 2-0 victory in the series.
England captain Alastair Cook stood
out against the spinners for four hours
before offspinner Shoaib Malik had him
stumped for 63 to end up with 3-26
in his farewell Test.
Cook was the lone fighter on a sharp
turning track and hit four boundaries
in his 164-ball knock as all the other
English batsmen couldn t cope with
the sharp spin of Pakistan s three-
pronged spin attack, led by Shah.
"If you look back at the whole series
there s contribution from everyone and
that s really pleasing for me as a team,"
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq said.
"The way Yasir Shah bowled, he won
us almost two games, but credit should
be given to the England team, they
really put up a good fight."
Shah, who also got useful tips from
Australian legendary Shane Warne
before the Third Test at Sharjah Cricket
Stadium, ended up with 15 wickets in
two Test matches after missing out on
the first one due to injury.
The lone consolation for Cook was
that he finished as the overall top scorer
after making 450 runs in three Test
matches that included a double century
in Abu Dhabi.
"We competed really well but at crit-
ical moments we couldn t dominate
Pakistan and they were very resilient,"
"It s always a learning curve, but
unfortunately international cricket isn t
just about learning, it s about getting
results (and) we ve lost two out of three
The England captain rued the fielding
lapses especially the three chances given
to Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez,
who went on to score 151 in Pakistan s
strong second innings score of 355 for
an overall lead of 283 runs.
"Even yesterday we created half
chances, (but) we couldn t grab them
and (they) made us pay," Cook said.
Shah and Zulfiqar Babar (2-31) had
pushed England to the brink of defeat
inside the first 30 minutes on the last
day when they claimed four wickets
