Exceptional England praised by Collingwood

Deepankar Kaur | cricket20

England skipper Paul Collingwood was full of praise after another world class performance from England who claimed their seventh straight Twenty20 international victory.

"It's a special achievement and we obviously did it during the best time which was during the World Cup," said Collingwood after the game.

"To continue with that form, even though we've lost a couple of players," he added.

The Twenty20 World Champions produced another dominate display; sealing a 2-0 series victory over a Pakistan team who looked mentally ‘spent’ after being in the spotlight of the worlds media over the course of the last 10 days.

With victory coming at a canter Collingwood reserved special praise for his bowlers who produced another dominate display after bowling Pakistan out for just 89, their lowest in the shortest format of the game.

"I'm delighted in the response of the dressing room and the bowlers as a unit are doing fantastically well. I think in the last seven games they haven't conceded over 148 runs which is fantastic in the Twenty20 format."

"We are just doing a lot of things really good - and we still have a lot of intent with the bat as well. Hopefully that continues into the future."

"It was exceptional again. I'm absolutely delighted with what was another strong performance. I'm going to sound like a broken record but the bowlers again adapted to the conditions very well."

"It's the same wickets but there was a slightly different pace to it and they adjusted their lengths to it, bowled a few cross-seams and it kissed the surface well."
