Get all the reaction and analysis to Pakistan's brilliant win and England's miserable collapse here on ESPNcricinfo. Pile in with your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter. Our senior correspondent George Dobell will be getting all the coverage from out in the Arabian Gulf so stayed tuned throughout the day and indeed the week until the next Test, the final one of the series from back in Dubai, begins next Friday, February 3. But the next live cricket is on Wednesday, Australia and India beginning their ODI series with a day-nighter at the SCG starting at 0835 GMT. See you soon...

So there we go, Pakistan have won the series. Who on earth could have predicted that? More importantly, who on earth would have predicted two surfaces that would have produced just eight days of cricket? Remarkable.

Presentation time...and a hundred silly awards to hand out...apart from a few...bowler of the match to Saeed Ajmal...outstanding performance of the match to Monty of the match is Abdur Rehamn for bowling his side to victory in this fourth innings..."I get a lot of confidence bowling opposite Saeed," he says. they were some double act...usual public relations computer speak from Andrew Strauss..."Ultimately we've been rolled over three innings out of four and the top order need to take that on the chin"'s Misbah..."A much needed victory for us. The bowlers were outstanding. I had belief in my bowlers."

Quite amazing really, this match, apart perhaps the second and third evenings, was all England, their comeback match, but Pakistan have sensed their chance in the fourth innings and taken it brilliantly.

Well that is a remarkable turnaround from complete disarray a year ago and now turning over the No.1 team in world cricket. Absolutely stunning win. They piled on the pressure by strangling England's run-scoring opportunities, forced some mistakes and produced several gorgeous deliveries. Rehman and Ajmal wheeling away, the noise around the bat, the atmosphere in the ground, it was exceptionally difficult to bat, and Bob Willis has just said apart from the current Indian line up at its best, nobody could have lived with that bowling.

Abdur Rehman to Anderson, OUT, swept, top edge, caught by Gul! And Pakistan have won a brilliant, fantastic Test match...a famous famous win...Gul didn't have to travel far to come in and take a simple catch. Pakistan win by 72 runs

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, OUT, Prior goes now, trying to have a go. Pushing away from his body and just chipped a catch to cover. 100 Test match wickets for Ajmal...thoroughly deserved

MJ Prior c Asad Shafiq b Saeed Ajmal 18 (65m 45b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Saeed Ajmal to Anderson, 1 run, inside edge past short leg and they scramble a run

James Anderson...heaven help you sir...

This is all over now bar the shouting...Pakistan are going to win the series!

Saeed Ajmal to Swann, OUT, another one. Playing back, playing back, playing back. That's all you need to know really. Off spinner past the inside edge, caught on the crease, plumb once more...

GP Swann lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Saeed Ajmal to Swann, no run, now a big off spinner and striking the pad but sliding down, runs away into the off side
Saeed Ajmal to Swann, no run, done by the doosra, Swann played inside it and got beaten
Saeed Ajmal to Prior, 3 runs, cut and it's a big outside edge that flies past slip and they get three to third man

We all thought it was Ajmal who would lead the Pakistan charge but it's been Rehman's left-arm orthodox that has torn England apart...amazing cricket...

Abdur Rehman to Swann, no run, forward and blocking on off stump

This bowling has just been irresistible, England have been all at sea...

Abdur Rehman to Broad, OUT, that is absolutely superb flighted delivery draws Broad into the drive and it rips back between bat and pad and clatters the off stump. Brilliant.

SCJ Broad b Abdur Rehman 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Abdur Rehman to Broad, no run, huge stride outside off and striking the pad so far outside off, nowhere near lbw

Well is that the game now for Pakistan? Stuart Broad, brilliant throughout the match, can he possible produce something more now when his team most need it...

Abdur Rehman to Trott, OUT, plumb in front and given out leg before. Playing back, turn past the outside edge, catches him on the knee roll and that's stone dead

IJL Trott lbw b Abdur Rehman 1 (24m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

Abdur Rehman to Trott, 4 leg byes, down the leg side and it flicks the pad and runs away for four very fine
