HONG KONG: Blistering half centuries by Abdul Razzaq and Sohail Tanvir guided Pakistan to a 35-run victory over England to be crowned champions at the Hong Kong Sixes on Sunday.
The victory saw Pakistan draw level with England as the team with the most number of wins at the big-hitting event – each on five. But Pakistan warned they will be back for more.
“It was a superb batting display,” conceded England captain Rory Hamilton-Brown. “We were up against some world-class players and getting to the final itself was creditable for us.”
Player-of-the-Tournament went to Pakistan’s Umar Akmal who aggregated 197 runs and set the event alight with his fierce batting.
