    It has taken 6 long years for Pakistan after the shambles of spot fixing to take a victory walk at The Oval. Honour was restored surely and more fittingly on the Independence Day of Pakistan.

    Day 4 began with England at 88/4 and still trailing by a lot. However, things started looking dodgier for the visitors as Bairstow counter attacked and Balance gave him company. In the process, Sohail did manage to remove Balance but that brought the in-form Moeen at the crease to join his usual partner-in-crime Bairstow. The two scored yet another 50-run partnership which was broken by Yasir Shah eventually.

    Then a bursting Wahab's over tilted all chances in Pakistan's favour when he ran out Woakes and removed Bairstow next ball. Yasir continued to target the tailenders and reached his 3rd 5fer of the series by removing Broad. After a little sticky partnership, England bundled out eventually giving a target of mere 40 runs.

    Still expected to make proceedings interesting despite a small target, Azhar Ali and Sam Aslam then took their sweet time and did not rush into completing a massive 10 wicket victory for Pakistan just after Tea.

    Younis Khan rightly was judged as Man of the Match for his masterclass double century. Misbah was given the honorary Pakistan's Man of the Series whereas Woakes won it for England.

    But the highlight of the day was obviously the whole team posing for photographs with their national flag and then taking victory lap to appreciate the support they have received throughout the series.

Munna puts his talent of making up stuff to good use for writing boring articles and reports on Cricistan, though he once won the Most Cheerful Poster of Cricistan award.
