Abu Dhabi Test

The first sight as we arrived at this fairly grotty stadium was the welcome one of Monty Panesar in his whites, bowling in practice. He replaced the injured Tremlett, and the team immediately took on a more balanced look.This was to prove as good a game of cricket as I have ever seen, almost every session full of incident and excitement.Pakistan 257 (Misbah 84, Shafiq 58, Broad 4-47)England 327 (Cook 94, Trott 74, Broad 58*)Pakistan 214 (Azhar Ali 68, Shafiq 43, Panesar 6-62)England 72 (Strauss ....
