Harry Brook NZ vs ENG
He went on to 150 from 145 balls, having stepping up his and England’s scoring.

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) — It was a just a third loss for Pakistan at the National Stadium in 45 test matches and first in 15 years. England was the first team to beat Pakistan there in a test match in 2000 before South Africa won a test match here seven years later.

The 3-0 drubbing was also Pakistan’s fourth successive test loss at home after Australia beat them in the final test earlier this year to win the two-test series 1-0.

Pakistan was kept at bay throughout the last three weeks and unable to find the right combination to counter England’s aggressive gameplan, which began at home this summer and now has seen them winning nine of the last 10 test matches. England’s only loss in that period was against South Africa at Lord’s before the Proteas got beaten 2-1 in the series.

England set the tone of a clean sweep in Pakistan when four of its batters smashed centuries on the opening day of the first test and the visitors racked up world-record 506-4.

Young Harry Brook filled perfectly in the shoes of injured Jonny Bairstow with three successive test centuries on tour and amassed 468 runs.

“Every person has stood up at some point, but Harry Brook has been unbelievable for us,” Stokes said. “He’s set Pakistan on fire, the calmness and belief is high class.”
