ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 – England vs Pakistan live video Match Highlights
England vs Pakistan live video – England suffered a stunning upset at the hands of inspired Pakistan in their second World Cup match at Trent Bridge.
Legendary West Indies batsman Vivian Richards has congratulated Pakistan for registering a convincing 14-run win over England in their ICC World Cup 2019 fixture at Trent Bridge.
Taking to Twitter, Richards posted a 30-second video in which he said, “What a wonderful win for Pakistan. I know for sure there were a lot of doubts today (for Pakistan). To beat the favorites is a magnificent win for Pakistan, especially after the way they played against West Indies.”
“Let me take this opportunity to say to Quetta Gladiators captain in PSL Sarfaraz Ahmad – Well done brother,” he added.
After being put into bat, Pakistan came out with a much-improved batting performance and posted a formidable total of 348/8. Mohammad Hafeez top-scored for them by playing a brilliant 84-run knock which came off just 62 balls.
England, in reply, could manage 334/9 in their stipulated quota of 50 overs despite centuries from Joe Root and Jos Buttler.
After the match, Sarfraz Ahmed lauded the team effort which saw them break their 12-match losing streak in ODIs. “It was a great team effort. Credit to batsmen for taking us to 350. Then bowlers bowled really well today,” said the Pakistan skipper.
Pakistan will next play Sri Lanka on June 7 in Bristol.
