ABU DHABI: Pakistan defeated England by 72 runs on the fourth day of the second Test to win the series 2-0 at Abu Dhabi Stadium here on Saturday.
England were shot out for their lowest Test score of 72 against Pakistan in all Tests. Left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman took six wickets.
Pakistan won the first Test by ten wickets in Dubai. The third Test will be played in Dubai from February 3.
England captain Andrew Strauss top-scored with 32.
England earlier dismissed Pakistan for 214 to give themselves a target of 145 to win in Abu Dhabi, but Andrew Strauss’s men again failed to deal with the host’s triple spin threat of Rehman, Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez.
Ajmal finished on 6-25, while Ajmal’s figures were 3-22.
Pakistan, who play their home matches in the Gulf due to security problems at home, won last week’s first test in Dubai by 10 wickets.
Scores: Pakistan 257 and 214; England 327 and 72
