DUBAI: Pakistan defeated England in all three matches to make a clean sweep of the three-Test series against England here at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.

Pakistan, who were bowled out for 99 in their first innings, became the first team to win a Test after being dismissed for under 100 since England, dismissed for 76 in the first innings, beat South Africa by 53 runs at Leeds in 1907.

Chasing a daunting target of 324, England were dismissed for 252 runs in the last session of the pen-ultimate day of the third and final Test match at Dubai.

Thus England lost the match by 71 runs after being defeated in the first Test at the same ground by ten wickets and the second Test by 72 runs at Abu Dhabi as their batting flopped against Pakistani spin duo of Saeed Ajmal and Abdul Rehman.

For Pakistan, paceman Umar Gul and off-break bowler Saeed Ajmal captured four wickets each while left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman claimed two wickets.

Good work boys..... We were waiting for this performance since long. Now the real challenge would be to beat Australia and make History... As in the era, the Ausi are really professionals then anybody else in the world of Cricket. See what they have done with India recently..
