Pakistan first Test win over Australia for 15 years

Oval; Pakitan’s 4 wiket victory over England who was leading the series by 2-0 have been reduced to 2-1.

It was Pakistan's first Test victory over England since Lahore in December 2005 and an impressive response from defeats by 354 runs and nine wickets respectively in the first two matches of the series.

The last cricket test would be played next week, if Pakistan the final test at Lord's beginning on Thursday the series would be leveled.

England resumed 146 ahead but their final pair lasted only four balls and added just one run as Moham Umar Akmal hit the winning single –

to make it 148-6 - after Pakistan had threatened to collapse and once again demonstrate their fragility. He had steadied matters after his side had lost three wickets after lunch but along with young pace bowler Mohammad Aamer saw them past the winning post mad Amir finished with a career-best 5-52.

Chasing 148 to win the tourists had reached 115 for 3 at lunch with veteran Mohammad Yousuf 22 not out and looked well set for an easy victory.

Pakistan were immediately put on the back foot when Hamed edged James Anderson to second slip, Swann needed two attempts to hold on to the chance and leave Pakistan 5 for one.

Farhat made 33 before he was leg before to Swann, the only bowler who gave captain Andrew Strauss any control whatsoever. Butt nearly saw his team home, making his 48 runs from 64 balls but he was neatly caught by Paul Collingwood, again off Swann, just before lunch.

Mohammad Aamer recorded his Test best figures of 5-52 to give Pakistan a real chance of pulling one Test back in the series.

Third Test, The Oval (day four):
Pakistan 308 & 148-6 beat England 233 & 222 by four wickets
