    Congrats to all my fellow Pakistanis who believed and didn't slit their wrists. Shoutout to my guys @Markhor @babajee @Syed1 and others who stuck through.

    For those who didn't believe and claim to be fans, tough luck. But just know this is a new era. A new dawn. You can't stop us. We are going to be a top 4 team in all 3 formats within the next couple of years, and there's nothing you can do about that.

    Pakistan Zindabad. Alhamdulillah.

    Haha but honestly what a win by the inexperienced team without their key bowler - Yasir Shah. Absolutely brilliant. From bowling to batting to fielding all departments clicked and performed amazingly. Hats off to the coaching staff and the boys themselves who keep on improving and surprising us.

    With Mickey Arthur and the current Pakistani team, i am supremely hopeful.

    wow

    well done Pak

    thought they might blow them out early in the morning

    but then to chase with 9 wickets in hand even with a low score

    that's shocking for pakistan

    thought it might be a bit too much for azhar to score again after a 50...

    Congrats Pakistan, a dominant show against all odds (inexperience, early summer, no Yasir, pitch/overhead conditions, losing the toss etc). Now hopefully the players stay grounded and not lose focus, a series win is there for the taking. Historically the best Asian side in England, will be a travesty if that doesn't translate to a series win because even lightweights like India and Sri Lanka have won a series each over there in the last 20 years. So enjoy the win and hopefully your boys draw/win the next match.

    We will do well in SA too.
    Talented players of pace bowling like Usman and Saad are sitting out. Lot of potential in this side.

    Big pressure will be on England at Leeds, Pakistan have a huge opportunity to win 2-0 and send England down the rankings.

    Great performance by the team. Must say I was worried after yesterday's final session but I did not need to be at all.

    Need one more big performance next week and could be our first test series win against England in England since 1996. That will be some feather in the cap for Safraz and Mickey.

    Very Good win, but task is not finished yet. In 2016 Series we could have won it 2-1 but messed up at Edgbaston.
    Now this time Pakistan needs to ensure they do not take their foot off the paddle and go out there in Leeds and win it or draw it atleast.

    First series win since 1996.

    Indeed great performance - beating Poms in a May Test and their home. I thought, I'll take a little nap & start it after lunch - bowlers ended the fun too quickly😩

    Congratulations to everyone, particularly Sarfraz, for keeping fantastically throughout. This PAK side is heavily dependent on bowlers - he just proved what they (bowlers) can do if catching cordon can back them.

    Well played, through professional, ruthless and confident performance- even Haris showed what I say about No. 3 for a good Test team. Abbas deserved the MoM, but I think after his opening spell on Day 1, Amir had been exceptional in this Test - just what one needs from the bowling leader, something PAK missed in past, batted well also.

    Next is Leeds, where I expect Abbas & Amir to slice this Pom lineup like watermelon, if itís a bit cloudy. FZ replaces Babar and rest is in perfect order - wonít be surprised if there is 3/4 changes in ENG XI; they have been total shambles in this Test, couldnít match even Ireland on their debut.

    Good luck for Leeds, for both Teams & fans - hope it doesnít end in 3 days again.

    Go Pakistan!!!

    Discipline is what makes the difference. In batting we avoided the fishing outside the off stump line on most occasions and in bowling we kept the ball good to full length keeping the line tight closer to off stump. The coaching looks to be working and leadership maturing. All in all, fantastic display of cricket from Pakistan.

    Lets hope for the good result again for Pak at Headingley where weather forecast looks to be good. A 2-0 win will be a great Eid gift to the nation.

    I Haven't followed match but the scorecard suggests that it was indeed a comprehensive victory for Pakistan. I must admit that I was expecting Pak to get smashed in UK.

    "Pakistan cricket has been in a downward spiral for two decades" - Fluke master



    In just last 2 years

    2016: Drew series with England
    2016: Reached number 1 ranking in Tests
    2017: Won Champions Trophy
    2017: Reached and sustained number 1 ranking in T20 (no other team has held it longer iirc)
    2018: Beat NZ in NZ in a T20 series (no other Asian side has done that)
    2018: Beat England in a Lord's test and may go on to win series



    Downward spiral

    Didn't expect us to win the opener tbh, but not just win, but to totally dominate a Test. Fantastic cricket by the lads, and great tactics by the bowlers.

    My comments are being taken out of context as usual. Just because I think the Champions Trophy was a fluke does not mean that every Pakistan win has to be one.

    This was certainly not a fluke, we outplayed England in all departments over the four days and pretty much won every session barring one. That cannot be a fluke.

    You can have a fluke day, but you cannot fluke over 10 sessions. Truly a clinical performance by the team. England have a lot of soul searching to do. They have been playing awful Test cricket for months now - the batting is simply not reliable at all. Certainly the worst Test cricket England have played over a prolonged period since the late 90's.

    The wicket had no grass and opting to bat first was a poor decision. However, Pakistan's execution was simply far better than England's and it was a well deserved victory.

    Today's iftari will taste sweeter. Our batsmen have been scoring runs for the last few years in test cricket, it is our pace bowlers that needed to step up. They did in this test match and we won easily.

    This was certainly not a fluke, we outplayed England in all departments over the four days and pretty much won every session barring one. That cannot be a fluke.

    You can have a fluke day, but you cannot fluke over 10 sessions. Truly a clinical performance by the team. England have a lot of soul searching to do. They have been playing awful Test cricket for months now - the batting is simply not reliable at all. Certainly the worst Test cricket England have played over a prolonged period since the late 90's.

    The wicket had no grass and opting to bat first was a poor decision. However, Pakistan's execution was simply far better than England's and it was a well deserved victory.
    We were told by you that the 2016 tour in late summer was the reason why Pakistan drew it 2-2. Had we toured in early summer - things would have been different. Well you got your answer today.

    Doesnít matter what time you play - the team who plays well wins.

    The conditions that Sri Lanka faced in May 2016 are different to the ones we faced at Lord's. Also, England had a few injury problems. However, this time, they have had their full strength team so credit should be given to Pakistan for outperforming England. Yes the pitch had no grass, but they still bowled and batted far better than England.

    I was out this morning, tuned in at lunchtime and it was already over. Very comprehensive win, and pretty hard to see England coming back at this stage. Pakistan look a very useful outfit in these conditions, their seam bowlers are loving this.

    Yes, the pitch had no grass. Global warming has had a tremendous effect on Lordís in two years that the grass was blown away this year. Had it been any other May in any other year - things would have been chaotic for Pak team.

    Last year in CT - Pak team had to win 4 knock out games in a row to win the cup. It was not a fluke. It was the beginning of a new era under Arthur-Sarfraz.

    Relax bro, I am sure you are happy as well. Poms got a real hammering from unexpected corners. You can see that from their decision - batted first in a May Test, thinking whatever, over 2 innings PAK isnít a match for them. PAK played last FC game probably in Dec Ď17 before this tour; since then Poms have played like 8 Tests & 20+ FC games... and then this. If you alter the preparation, it could have been a 2 Day Test !!!!

    Itís good fortune for England that there wasnít much grass on a softish surface - otherwise couple of 2 digit scores were waiting for them, trust me.

    LOL at the GIF!

    Someone explain me the logic of the poster in comments above, "You can have a fluke day, but you cannot fluke over 10 sessions." LOL. So you can have a fluke day in Champions trophy, how would you win FREAKISHLY by fluke in games after games in a tournament? So per the troll, you can only win temporarily by fluke, unless your are Pak, only then then you can win a TOURNAMENT by a fluke. This beats me.

    No bro, Indians do not believe CT as a fluke win. Only some Pak brothers believe so.

    It is just a case of an individual thinking they are smarter than everyone else, and now trying to "logically" justify their predictions. Classic case of the Dunning-Kruger phenomenon.
