DUBAI: Pakistan recorded its first ever clean sweep against England with an emphatic 71-run victory in the third and final Test on Monday.
England - - chasing an imposing 324-run target - - was dismissed for 252 on the fourth day with fast bowler Umar Gul grabbing 4-61 and offspinner Saeed Ajmal 4-67.
Matt Prior delayed the inevitable with an unbeaten 49 off 58 balls before he ran out of partners.
Pakistan won the first test by 10 wickets and the second by 72 runs when it bowled out England for 72 while chasing 145 runs.
The whitewash has now put England in danger of losing the ICC's jackpot of $175,000 which is awarded to the top Test team until the Apr. 1 cut off date every year - - if South Africa beats New Zealand 3-0 in March. AGENCIES
