Collingwood was an idiot to say that England will whitewash Pakistan, considering what Glenn McGrath was saying before the Ashes.

That said, I don't think he's far off. I don't think it'll be a whitewash, but I'm looking at a 2-0 series win.

Hell I thought the England first innings were poor; the second is worse! 39-6 at the mo.

The only comfort was the PCB first innings were somehow even worse than England's. Not the way they want to start the Tour; then again, this match doesn't have first class status and there's no continuity between the innings but still.

Hey Tim, tell me all you know about Neil Finn.

By the way, you win for the 'bo-gan' comment.

And now Vaughan is injured.

I don't expect an England Rugby sort of post-glory collapse and I still see England winning the series though.

England solve the problem of their middle order batting collapses!

Unfortunately, their top order has to collapse first for that to happen:

Quote:
England XI 2nd innings R M B 4 6
ME Trescothick lbw b Mohammad Asif 1 20 9 0 0
AJ Strauss c Amin-ur-Rehman b Shahid Nazir 56 130 98 7 0
*MP Vaughan retired hurt 0 6 1 0 0
KP Pietersen lbw b Mohammad Asif 0 3 1 0 0
PD Collingwood c Shahid Nazir b Mansoor Amjad 61 100 70 6 4
A Flintoff c Shahid Nazir b Mansoor Amjad 28 28 19 4 2
+GO Jones c Amin-ur-Rehman b Mansoor Amjad 30 89 63 4 0
AF Giles c Shahid Nazir b Mohammad Asif 49 112 83 9 0
SD Udal c Faisal Athar b Mansoor Amjad 12 14 19 2 0
MJ Hoggard b Mansoor Amjad 3 7 8 0 0
SJ Harmison not out 9 0 11 1 0
Extras (b 4, lb 1, w 2) 7
Total (all out, 63.4 overs) 256

FoW: 1-4 (Trescothick), 2-10 (Pietersen), 3-123 (Strauss),
4-123 (Collingwood), 5-154 (Flintoff), 6-212 (Jones),
7-226 (Udal), 8-230 (Hoggard), 9-256 (Giles).
OK that's a bit unfair to Andy Strauss and Vaughan's injured of course so it's not a bad score at all but you kinda expect Trescothick and Pietersen to have more than a single between them.

One wicket left. Good bowling performance from England, but they've got to capitalise on it.

Incidentally the BBC is not providing any live commentary (except for some irritating 'updates' from Five Live) and there's no television coverage of this here, so I'm relying on cricinfo's text commentary.
