Nasser Hussain struck a brilliant century in Pakistan yesterday to help England A to a remarkable one-run victory in Peshawar. Hussain's England A team now remain unbeaten seven weeks and nine games into their Pakistan tour.
The Yorkshire all-rounder, Craig White, was also instrumental in victory, conceding just three runs from an inspired final over as England A went 1-0 up in the three-match one-day series, which ends their trip. He also made a sprightly 39 not out to help Hussain (100 not out) put on 81 in the last 10 overs of the England innings.
Hussain, who has played in seven Tests - the last two years ago - must now come in back into the senior England reckoning as a result of his performances here.
