Tourists suffering

Pakistan A 248-5 England A 115 Pakistan A win by 133 runs

The hopes of the England A side of completing a clean sweep in the one- day series against Pakistan A - and finishing the tour unbeaten - were dashed by a 21-year-old fast bowler, Sajid Shah, in Sheikhupura yesterday.

The right-arm bowler, playing his first match of the series, took 6 for 43 as England A were dismissed for a paltry 115 in reply to Pakistan A's 40-over score of 248 for 5.

The tourists were down to 11 fit players with their cricket manager, John Emburey, on duty as 12th man. A crushing 133-run defeat was, however, a disappointing end to a highly successful tour in which England A won the Test series 1-0 and the one-day international series by a 2-1 margin.
