Twitter reactions on Pakistan’s win vs England: Twitter was excited on watching the nerve-wrenching high-scoring thriller.
During the sixth match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Pakistan at Trent Bridge, Pakistan defeated England by 14 runs to register their maiden victory of the tournament.
Chasing a 349-run total, England didn’t start off well as they lost opening batsman Jason Roy (8) in the third over itself. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, it was a 130-run opening partnership between Joe Root (107) and Jos Buttler (103) which had kept the hosts in contention to chase the total.
While both the batsmen scored individual hundreds, it weren’t enough as Pakistani bowlers kept coming back with wickets at regular intervals. Once Root and Buttler got out, things appeared difficult for the hosts and that is what eventually happened.
With 38 runs needed to win in the last three overs, the match still remained in balance. Having said that, Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz dismissing both Moeen Ali (19) and Chris Woakes (21) on consecutive deliveries saw his team sitting on the driver’s seat.
At the end of 50 overs, England scored 334/9 as Wahab Riaz (10-0-82-3) was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan.
After England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to field, Pakistan ended up scoring 348/8 in their allotted quota of 50 overs. Mohammad Hafeez, who came in to bat at No. 4 in the 21st over, top-scored for Pakistan scoring 84 (62) with the help of eight fours and a couple of sixes. With bowling figures of 10-0-50-3, England all-rounder Moeen Ali was the highest wicket-taker for the hosts.
Twitter reactions on Pakistan’s win vs England:
Lose 4 nil to the Worlds No1 team coming into the World Cup. Get demolished by a team that had to qualify for the CWC in your 1st game. Lose your last 11 completed ODI’s. Take down the No 1 ranked team next game. Never write off Pakistan👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.

If anything, this World Cup has defied predictions so far. And it’s properly alive now. And the subcontinent is back in the business. And trust Pakistan to go to sublime from ridiculous #PAKvENG

You lose 11 games in a row. Then you are out for 105 against a team that hasn’t won a series for four years. Then you rack up 348 against the world’s best team and beat them in their den. Pakistan’s cricket is a slap in the face of logic. #CWC19

Fantastic win for Pakistan, England losing in a run chase at home after nearly 4 years. Pakistan have showed a lot of character after the humiliating loss against West Indies. Wahab and Amir were really good in the end . #ENGvPAK

Pakistan’s stunning win over England gives #WorldCup2019 the dimension of unpredictability that looked lost after the first one-sided four matches. Dare to pick you winner now!

Just landed and see what a staggering performance Pakistan have put up. I told you, with Pakistan, yesterday has no connection to today, today none to tomorrow.

Nasser Hussain “What a turnaround it has been for Pakistan. Their supporters haven’t lost faith, through thick and thin – 12 games including the warm-up they havent won, but their fans have stuck with their team and cheered them on and wished them well” #ENGvPAK #CWC19
