Sky Cricket Podcast: Michael Atherton and Ramiz Raja reflect on tied England v Pakistan series
Last Updated: 14/08/16 5:58pm
Michael Atherton says 2-2 was a fair result after Pakistan leveled the four-Test series with a 10-wicket win over England on day four at The Oval.
We hear Athers' thoughts, and those of Ramiz Raja, after Pakistan's emphatic win - Ramiz praising Yasir Shah's comeback after taking five-for in England's second innings.
We also hear from the two captains after the series conclusion, England's Alastair Cook, and Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq; with the 42-year-old visiting skipper quizzed on his Test future.
Ramiz hopes Misbah continues in the role to try to help the team push for the No 1 Test ranking and also wants the other senior statesman in the side, Younus Khan - scorer of a double ton in this Test - to carry on.
Athers, meanwhile, ponders who England should take on the tour of the sub-continent later this year - will the struggling trio of Alex Hales, James Vince and Gary Ballance make the trip?
Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes certainly will, and Athers reflects on a terrific series for both, with the latter awarded England's player of the series.
Also on the podcast, Ramiz celebrates his birthday by looking forward to an evening with Sir Ian Botham, while Athers looks forward to some time off and reflects on a great start to the Premier League season for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
