England in Pakistan 2000 Series

India Cricket Live

England Won the Series

The tour was England's first Test visit to Pakistan since the infamous altercation between Mike Gatting and umpire Shakoor Rana in 1987.
Captain Nasser Hussain's intense, uncompromising style of leadership was at the heart of England's first series triumph in Pakistan since 1961-62.
Two tedious draws were followed by an extraordinary counter-attacking punch in the Karachi gloom.
The series marked a watershed moment in English cricket fortunes.
Since then the side have enjoyed a five-year period of prosperity, culminating in Ashes glory this past summer.
But before the real business of the Tests, there was a short limited-overs series of day-night matches to take care of.
In the opening game a brutal 84 from Andrew Flintoff - his first innings of note for his country - helped England reach an imposing target of 305.
The second international, where spin astonishingly accounted for every wicket to fall, was won by eight wickets by Pakistan as a swarm of insects - attracted by the Lahore floodlights - invaded the ground.
And in the third fixture, Saqlain Mushtaq dismissed England cheaply for a 2-1 series win. In both those matches, England's batting was pretty woeful.
Onto the Tests, where in Lahore, Hussain won his only toss on that tour.
England batted to a declaration at lunch on the third day. There were two century stands, firstly by openers Michael Atherton and Marcus Trescothick, then through Thorpe (118) and Craig White.
India Cricket Live On a cracked, turning wicket Saqlain took all of the eight wickets to fall, after bowling no fewer than 74 overs.
When they eventually replied, Pakistan were indebted to a stand of 127 for the 9th wicket between Yousuf Youhana, who made 124, and Saqlain, after White and Ashley Giles had put them in danger of following on.
The game ended with England adding 77 to their first innings lead of 79 and an aggressive spell from Wasim Akram forcing Nasser Hussain to retire hurt with a wrist injury.
The Test in Faisalabad was just as unedifying for the most part and involved some very slow scoring.
Having elected to bat, Pakistan made just 316, Giles bowling with discipline for figures of 5-75.
In response the England top-order all made starts, but they only registered a lead of 26 with a patient 33 from nightwatchman Ian Salisbury assisting top-scorer Thorpe's 79.
Pakistan finally upped the tempo in the second innings and gave themselves most of the final day to bowl England out, setting the tourists 244 to win.
Finally a typically dogged 65 from Atherton saw England to safety as they ended on 125-5 in pursuit of an improbable 244. THIRD TEST, KARACHI Atherton would continue in this watchful vein in the final match in Karachi, but not until he had admired two flawless and fluent centuries from Inzamam-ul-Haq (142) and Yousuf (117), who was man of the series.
Together the pair put on 259 for the fourth wicket in a solid-looking Pakistan total of 405.
England had to dig in, and in marked contrast to the strokeplay and barrage of boundaries displayed by the Pakistani duo, Atherton's 125 was a masterpiece of crease-occupation.
India Cricket Live He batted for just short of 10 hours, ably supported by a battling 51 from out of form skipper Hussain, as England totalled 388.
The match was apparently heading nowhere even though Pakistan went into stumps on the final day on 71-3, with Giles clean-bowling Inzamam.
But then the home batting line-up played a succession of reckless shots the following day and England were able seriously to consider victory.
White and Darren Gough attacked as Pakistan collapsed from 128-4 to 158 all out, leaving England a target of 176 to chase in 44 overs.
Moin responded with delaying tactics, appealing for bad light on three occasions.
But Graham Thorpe's superb unbeaten 64, a spirited 40 from Graeme Hick, and the insistence of umpire Steve Bucknor that play should continue despite the ever-engulfing darkness, led to a famous victory.
