Pakistan scored 304 and 216, while England made 354 and 170-2.  It’s England’s second victory in Karachi in as many visits, across 22 years

Arelentless England lineup powered to an eight- gate palm in the third and final Test on Tuesday to complete a major series reach in Pakistan.

England started the day demanding a farther 55 runs for palm and reached 170- 2 within 38 twinkles to secure its alternate consecutive palm with further than a day to spare in its first Test stint to Pakistan in 17 times.

It was Pakistan’s first- ever 3- 0 loss in a three- Test series on home soil.

England beat Pakistan by eight lattices in the third and final Test in Karachi Tuesday to sweep the series 3- 0 and hand the Pakistanis their first home color. Continuing on 112- 2, England reached the modest 167- run target in just 38 twinkles, with Ben Duckett and Ben Stokes finishing unbeaten on 82 and 35 independently. England won the first Test in Rawalpindi by 74 runs and the alternate in Multan by 26 runs. This was England’s first Test stint of Pakistan since 2005, having refused to travel the South Asian country in the times since because of security enterprises.

Duckett cracked his 12th boundary out presto bowler Mohammad Wasim to seal the palm on the fourth day, with England finishing on 170- 2.

Agha Salman dropped Stokes off incentive Abrar Ahmed with the English captain on 22 and just 19 demanded for palm.

With nine triumphs in their last 10 matches, England have vindicated their recently espoused footloose approach to Test justice dubbed” Baz ball”, after the surname of trainer Brendon McCullum.

McCullum and Ben Stokes took charge of a miscarrying side in May that had won just one of their former 17 Tests, including a 4- 0 demotion in the Ashes in Australia.

England played power- packed justice right from the launch of the Pakistan stint, smashing 506- 4 to set a record for the most platoon runs on the opening day of a Test.

Pakistan fell for 216 against 18- time-old novitiate Rehan Ahmed( 5- 48) in the alternate innings to set England a modest target of 167 for palm.

Ben Duckett proceeded on 50 and remained unbeaten on 82 off 78 balls, and commander Ben Stokes inked off his platoon’s dominant brand of aggressive justice by finishing 35 not out.

Pakistan incentive Abrar Ahmed could have finished the series with 18 lattices in two Test matches, but Agha Salman could n’t hold onto a delicate chance from Stokes at long- on with England just 19 runs down from a memorable palm.

England won the first Test on a flat gate in Rawalpindi by 74 runs in darkening light on the last day before recording a thrilling 26- run palm at Multan on a slow- turning track inside four days.

Rehan Ahmed conquered Pakistan’s batters in the platoon’s fort – National Stadium – on Day 3, and England had tooled to 112- 2 in the final session through the aggressive fur of Zak Crawley( 41) and Duckett.

It was just the third loss for Pakistan at the National Stadium in 45 Test matches and the first in 15 times. England was the first platoon to beat Pakistan there in a Test match in 2000 before South Africa won a Test match then seven times latterly.

The 3- 0 trouncing was Pakistan’s fourth consecutive Test loss at home after Australia beat it in the final Test before this time to win the two- Test series 1- 0.

Pakistan was kept at bay throughout the last three weeks and unfit to find the right combination to fight England’s aggressive gameplan, which began at home this summer and now has seen it winning nine of the last 10 Test matches. England’s only loss in that period was against South Africa at Lord’s before the Proteas got beaten 2- 1 in the series.

England set the tone of a clean reach in Pakistan when four of its batters smashed centuries on the opening day of the first Test, and the caller racked up a world- record 506- 4.

Youthful Harry Brook filled impeccably in the shoes of injured Jonny Bairstow with three consecutive centuries on stint and amassed 468 runs.

His 111 at Karachi in the first innings brought England a vital first- innings lead of 50 runs before Pakistan capitulated against Ahmed’s legspin in the alternate innings. Know More Cricket News….
