Ab de villiers is undoubtedly the most loved cricketer in the world at present moment and he surely deserved a century in his 100th test, but was caught out on 85. He never really got a chance in the second innings as rain went on for 3 days and he was defied a century. Well the champ would surely be back with a boom as he is on a rampage with 3 100+ scores in his last 10 international appearances.Date: 19 Nov 2015
England are 2-1 up in a five match series, they beat Pakistan comfortably by 6 wickets in the end what at one time was looking like a close contest, especially after the amount of spin and grip which Malik and debutante Zafa Goahr were getting from the pitch. Sarfraz missed a crucial stumping which coasted the match to Pakistan. Earlier in the first innings Pakistani batsmen once again failed to manage the short ball and five of them threw their wicket to a short ball. 3 batsmen were run out and courtesy to Wahab's late cameo they somehow managed to post a total of 208 on the board which in the end proved to be an easy chase for the English. Irfan bowled a memorable spell, fired up with aggression he bowled some unplayable deliveries to Hales and Morgan but was unlucky to get wickets.Date: 19 Nov 2015
