England do a lap of honor for their fans who are ecstatic over the win. A well deserved win for England who have picked up vital points and seems to have overcome the loss of points against Zimbabwe.

One must say that Pakistan are still in lots of trouble with their batting Pakistan bowlers did well but their batting let them down, the experiment of sending in Afridi followed by an out of form Inzamam did not play off Pakistan have kept their newlands record intact, have lost five out of five Youhana got a perfect yorker and Saeed did get in some practice.

An inspired bowling spell by Anderson was just too good and he is only twenty Pakistan will be looking at what hit them, true, the swinging conditions at Newlands did not help either but all said and done, Pak were outclassed.

That's all folks, please be here tomorrow for Canada v WI and India v Namibia, any comments to comms@cricinfo.com, good night all.
