Collingwood full of praise after England victory

England skipper Paul Collingwood full of praise for his England team after they cruised to a 5 wicket victory over Pakistan at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff.

The Twenty20 World Cup Champions made it six wins on the trot after an impressive displayed from Michael Yardy and Eoin Morgan who built a 6th wicket partnership of 67 to lead England to victory.

"That was another great performance. At the moment we have a strategy that seems to be working," said Collingwood after the game.

"The bowlers have been absolutely fantastic to keep Pakistan down to a total like that. It was always going to be quite gettable."

"We had a little bit of a hiccup there, losing a few early wickets, but Morgs and Yards were outstanding at the end."

"The skills that the boys have shown are absolutely fantastic," he added.

"The thought processes, the execution, getting the fields right. Obviously there's a lot of communication going on before the game and out on the park and the boys are just doing it in the middle and keeping the opposition down to good totals that we can chase."
