England vs Pakistan, 3rd Test

August 9, 2006
England's Sajid Mahmood (centre) claimed a four-wicket haul as England crushed Pakistan by 167 runs on Tuesday to win the third Test and clinch the series 2-0.

Pakistan, set 323 to win on the final day, were bowled out for 155 halfway through the afternoon session, giving England their first home win over the tourists since 1982.

Mahmood would have as dramatic an influence in the afternoon, with two wickets in his first over back after lunch. He lured the batsman forward with the perfect ball and left him looking back in surprise at the missing bails. That made it 112 for six and the game was up.
