Highlight Story

Pakistan's tour of England went from bad to worse after losing by five wickets in the first of two Twenty20 internationals on Sunday as new fixing allegations were reported in the British media.

Led by Eoin Morgan's 38 not out and Michael Yardy's unbeaten 35, England reached 129-5 with 17 balls remaining after Pakistan had been restricted to 126-5 at Sophia Gardens.

The match had been in the balance until some Pakistan fielding lapses. Umar Gul committed two errors, while Shoaib Akhtar dropped Morgan on 13 in a straightforward chance at short fine-leg and shortly after allowed a boundary.

The News of the World secretly filmed Pakistan batsman Yasir Hameed as saying some of his teammates often "are trying to lose" for money.
