After the impressive win in the first T20 at Dubai against Pakistan, England should be mighty pleased that they pulled off a victory in the second game as well, to clinch the T20 series with a match in hand
An under experienced England overcame a strong Pakistan by 14 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the T20 series. Rather unexpectedly, England decided to leave out two of their key players in Joe Root and Jos Buttler, who had just returned to scintillating form.
A contest featuring Pakistan mostly involves a sub-battle between their bowlers and the opposition batsmen. This is not to say that Pakistan lack batting talent, but their bowling prowess often stands out for they keep producing match-winning bowlers out of nowhere
Jos Buttler was supposed to be out of form. But, on Friday against Pakistan, he smashed one of the most sensational one-day hundreds as England upset Pakistan once again to claim the four-match ODI series by a comprehensive 3-1 margin
