Victory for Morality; England V Pakistan Final One Day International, Rose Bowl England Wins the Series 3-2


Byline: DEAN WILSON

ENGLAND finally found the cutting edge to send Pakistan packing with their tails between their legs - and claim a record six series wins for the summer.

The shamed tour that has heaped nothing but scandal and embarrassment on the game is finally over and England can continue to stay on the moral high ground on and off the field after a 3-2 NatWest series win.

Inspired by man of the match Eoin Morgan, the most exciting batting talent in the English game, and his ton-derful display at his favourite ground, Pakistan were smashed by 121 runs to cue scenes of unbridled passion and joy.

Spurred on by the anger and frustration that came with being unfairly branded cheats, the England huddle after Morgan took the winning catch spoke volumes for how they felt.

And unlike how some of the cricket has appeared over the last few troubled weeks, their smiles were 100 per cent genuine.

Morgan led the way with the bat yet again - and on the same Rose Bowl square where he plundered 103 not out against Australia earlier this year, he went a boundary better to rack up 107 not out in the last match of the summer and put Pakistan to the sword.

His knock provided meat in England's total of 256-6, which on a slow, used pitch was clearly a decent target.

His ability to assess a situation and play accordingly is possibly his greatest strength, and he did it perfectly in setting a platform when others had failed to grab a giant score themselves.

T h e I r i s h m a n usually specialises Pakistan in run chases for his big scores, as his previous two England one-day tons demonstrated.

But this time it was all about putting something on the board in the sun for Pakistan to chase under floodlights.

And thanks to a double double from Nottinghamshire duo Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann, England were soon on course to complete the victory they craved so much.

Both men eventually claimed three wickets apiece, even if they missed out on a hat-trick to seal a memorable evening.

Their reward is a four-day boot camp in preparation for the Ashes, but after such a sensational effort amid difficult circumstances, the England players surely deserve nothing less than a luxurious holiday to rest their weary limbs. …
