    Bairstow 83, Cook 66, Root 62, Hales 54) beat Pakistan 400 (Azhar 139, Aslam 82,
    Misbah 56) and 201 (Aslam 70) by 141 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsAn
    afternoon of outstanding reverse-swing bowling conjured England a memorable
    come-from-behind 141-run victory at Edgbaston. Pakistan crumbled to 201 all out,
    at one stage losing 4 for 1 in a 23-ball spell between Steven Finn and Chris
    Woakes before tea, having been sitting reasonably comfortably at lunch with a
    draw well within their compass.However, having been set 343 in 84 overs,
    Pakistan subsided over the final two sessions. Moeen Ali picked the lock when he
    removed Azhar Ali then the quick bowlers bulldozed through the door. Sami Aslam
    played his second classy innings of the match, but when he shouldered arms at
    Finn shortly before tea saving the game was always likely to be too much for
    Pakistans lower orderJames Anderson and Stuart Broad each struck quickly after
    the break, but England were frustrated by a 50-run stand for the final wicket in
    11 overs, a partnership which showed the pitch contained no demons. Saving the
    game remained a long way off for Sohail Khan and Rahat Ali, and England had four
    overs with the second new ball up their sleeve. Yet, there was just a bit if
    twitchiness emerging when Sohail slammed a return catch back to Moeen who,
    having twice contributed crucial innings, played a crucial role in the
    victory.It will be a tough defeat to take for Pakistan who were dominant over
    the first two days of the game before losing their way over the two second
    innings. Conversely, Englands resilience to fight back makes this one of their
    finest wins in recent times - they are excellent frontrunners in a game, but
    questions have sometimes been asked about their ability to claw back.Andersons
    six-over post lunch burst was where the game really changed after Moeen had been
    rewarded for his best spell of the series by drawing Azhar, who had been worked
    over by Broad, into loose drive which found Cook at second slip. Anderson had a
    grumpy match - removed from the attack in the first innings for running on the
    pitch - but this was him at his best: getting the old ball to talk with
    immaculate control of line and length. It was not massive swing, but enough to
    create uncertainty which forced Younis Khan to poke outside off, Jonny Bairstow
    taking a good catch in front of first slip. Younis looked no closer to regaining
    his form.The most electrifying period of play, though, was when Finn and Woakes
    burst through the middle order - two bowlers who have had contrasting summers.
    Finns wicketless run had reached 429 balls when he brought an edge from Misbah,
    a wicket that brought a primeval roar, a moment of raw emotion, from the pace
    bowler who has toiled without luck in recent outings.More was to follow as
    another bowling change paid dividends - Cook had an excellent day in the field -
    with Woakes nipping a delivery into Asad Shafiqs pads to trap him lbw for a pair
    and give another first-over wicket. Then in his next over he found Sarfraz
    Ahmeds outside edge which was well held, low at second slip, by Joe Root amid a
    heady atmosphere. The ground was far from full, but those in cheered every
    moment. For a second Woakes, bowling with six slips, was on a hat-trick when
    Yasir Shah was given lbw but he had got an inside edge; the reprieve was
    temporary.Aslam watched it all unfold from the non-strikers end having reached
    his fifty from 124 balls with a slog-sweep off Moeen over midwicket. He became
    just the fourth Pakistan opener to hit two fifties in a Test in England, a
    magnificent effort for a player with such little cricket leading into the match.
    Maybe it was the effect of having Misbah for company for a period, but he
    suddenly wanted to become more expansive against Moeen. However, the clatter of
    wickets - and pace from both ends - forced him back into his shell and his
    dismissal, ironically to the non-stroke he had played so well during the match,
    left a weak lower order with a task beyond them.Aslams performance was in sharp
    contrast to that of his opening partner. Englands one success in the morning
    could hardly have come more gift-wrapped if Mohammad Hafeez had come out with a
    bow on his head. He managed to avoid the pair, but then helped a short delivery
    down to Woakes at long leg as he appeared to want to hit the ball in the air.
    There was only one fielder he could pick out - he did it with precision. Broads
    expression was as much surprise as delight. For a while, Pakistan responded well
    to the early setback. Then it all went badly awry.

    celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money
    given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those
    teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can
    play for a different team in the middle of their season.
    sWell Bottle Stockists . The Redskins
    announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl
    championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. EVANSTON,
    Ill. -- It wasnt just about building on a huge victory and a return to the Top
    10 for No. 8 Wisconsin. The Badgers wanted to end their recent struggles against
    Northwestern.To that end, they also succeeded.Corey Clement ran for 106 yards
    and a touchdown, Jazz Peavy scored on a 46-yard run and Wisconsin beat
    Northwestern 21-7 on Saturday.Conor Sheehy forced a big fumble when he sacked
    Clayton Thorson with the Wildcats (4-5, 3-3 Big Ten) threatening early in the
    fourth quarter.That led to Clements 2-yard TD run, making it a 14-point game and
    preserving the third straight win for the Badgers (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten, No. 8 CFP).
    They went from beating Nebraska in overtime to picking up a rare win at
    Northwestern.It was just one of those things where I really wanted to beat this
    team and Im glad we got to do that, Peavy said.Northwestern had won six of 10
    and four straight at Ryan Field against Wisconsin.The Wildcats beat the Badgers
    by six at home in 2014 and came away with a 13-7 victory at Camp Randall Stadium
    last year in a game where three Wisconsin touchdowns were negated by calls from
    the officials, who had snowballs thrown at them as they left the field.We really
    had to show who the best team was today and we didnt want a referee to make the
    game time decision at the end, said Clement, who had 32 carries -- three shy of
    his career high.Peavys 46-yarder in the second quarter was the first rushing
    touchdown of his career. He also had 73 yards receiving and a 24-yard punt
    return.Alex Hornibrook played most of the game and completed 11 of 19 passes for
    92 yards, and the Badgers rolled up 333 yards while dominating the and time of
    possession (40:25-19:35).I thought there was some really good things that we
    did, coach Paul Chryst said. I thought that we were fairly consistent running
    the football. Defensively, I know they had the drive at the end of the first
    half, but I thought we did a lot of really good things defensively against what
    we thought was a really good Northwestern team.The Wildcats lost again to a Top
    10 team after coming up short in a four-point loss at Ohio State last
    week.Thorson went 28 of 52 for 277 yards and a touchdown.Austin Carr added 132
    yards receiving, including a 13-yard TD late in the first half, but Justin
    Jackson ran for 42 yards.ddddddddddddI think were just tired of being close,
    Carr said. We want to push through. ... When we beat ourselves, we cant beat two
    teams in the same day -- especially against such a good team as
    Wisconsin.WINNING AT RYANWisconsin had not won at Ryan Field since 1999. But
    several big plays by Peavy and a fumble recovery by DCota Dixon with
    Northwestern threatening early in the fourth helped change that.The Wildcats
    drove to the 19 early in the quarter, but got pushed back to the 30 by a holding
    penalty against Eric Olson and a 1-yard loss for Jackson.Things only got worse
    for Northwestern on the next play when Thorson fumbled as he was sacked by
    Sheehy. Dixon returned the recovery 22 yards to the Wildcats 45, and Clement ran
    it in from the 2 . The two-point conversion run by Alec Ingold made it 21-14
    with 8:51 left.THE TAKEAWAYWisconsin: The Badgers solidified their standing in
    the Top 10 by taking out a team that has been playing better after dropping its
    first two games.Northwestern: With three games left, the Wildcats will need to
    finish strong if theyre going to make a bowl game.NOT CONVERTINGNorthwestern
    managed just 39 yards rushing. That probably helps explain why the Wildcats
    converted just 5 of 18 third downs.NUMBER CHANGENorthwestern star linebacker
    Anthony Walker Jr. wore No. 11 in honor of cornerback Matthew Harris, his
    roommate. Harris got hit in the head making a tackle against Illinois State on
    Sept. 10 and retired last week.Walker said he will go back to wearing No.
    1.FINAL WORDS- Chryst on Peavys big plays: Jazz is capable of that. He just
    needs to keep maximizing opportunities and I thought for most part he did
    that.UP NEXTWisconsin: The Badgers get a bit of a breather when they host
    struggling Illinois next week.Northwestern: Like Wisconsin, Northwestern figures
    to be in for an easier time next week when it visits Purdue.---More AP college
