Re: Cricket

Wow, Bairstow very lucky there, if that had been Roy the chances are the umpire would have given him out and he would have been on review.

Re: Cricket

Well played Pakistan, they were brilliant and deserved winners. There are estimates of up to a billion watching that little match in London today.
