Ebere Eze, Osayi-Samuel hand QPR victory against Cardiff City

first_imgRelatedPosts Townsend: Eze’s an incredible talent Eberechi Eze to add spark to Crystal Palace Eberechi Eze debuts for Crystal Palace as Eagles thump Southampton Eberechi Eze and Bright Osayi-Samuel played significant roles as Queens Park Rangers pommelled Cardiff City 6-1 in their first Championship game of the year. The Anglo-Nigerians scored and provided assists to help ‎Mark Warburton’s men end their recent unimpressive run of form, having failed to secure victory in their previous four matches. Eze ignited the flurry of goals nine minutes into the encounter, sending a sublime cross to Nahki Wells, who in turn headed home the effort for QPR’s opener. Osayi-Samuel doubled the lead in the 27th minute and completed his brace four minutes before half-time, beating two of his markers before firing his effort beyond goalkeeper Neil Etheridge. Just three minutes into the second half, Eze shone again, setting up Wells for his second goal in the encounter. The 21-year-old midfielder then grabbed a goal of his own in the 57th minute after benefitting from Ilias Chair’s assist before Wells sealed the victory to render Will Vaulks’ late strike a consolation goal. With the result, QPR climbed to 15th in the Championship table with 35 points from 26 games and will hope to continue their impressive performances against Swansea City on Sunday.Tags: Bright Osayi-SamuelCardiff CityEberechi EzeMark WartburtonQueen’s Park Rangerslast_img read more

Pakistan level series after crushing England by 10 wickets

first_img(REUTERS)Leg-spinner Yasir Shah took five wickets to help Pakistan crush England by 10 wickets in the final Test at The Oval on yesterday and level a fluctuating series 2-2.The touring side bowled England out for 253 in their second innings, Shah completing figures of 5-71, before Azhar Ali and Sami Aslam eased them to a simple target of 40 in 13.1 overs to complete an emphatic win.“It was special, keeping in mind it was Independence Day, it was something special to draw the series here after being 2-1 down, losing the second Test badly and losing the third,” Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq told the BBC.“But the way the team fought back, I’m a really happy captain.”England had resumed on 88 for four and Gary Ballance soon fell for 17 but Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali shared a sixth-wicket partnership of 65 to give the hosts hoping of saving the match.Shortly before lunch, however, Shah deceived Moeen with a quicker delivery and the left-hander, on 32, nicked another catch to a gleeful Sarfraz.Chris Woakes was run out following a mix-up with Bairstow, who drove the next delivery from Wahab Riaz straight to extra cover, his departure for 81 ending any realistic chance of England saving the match.Stuart Broad reverse swept Shah straight to Younus Khan at slip and after Steven Finn and James Anderson shared a defiant last-wicket partnership of 32, Anderson was trapped lbw by part-time off-spinner Iftikhar Ahmed for 17.Azhar smashed Moeen for a huge six to take Pakistan to 42-0 and clinch victory, punching the air in delight before leaving the field with Aslam to warm applause from the sun-baked crowd.“You expect to win your home series, but Pakistan showed their class – we knew Younus was going to get us eventually as you don’t average 50 in more than 100 tests if you’re not a class player,” England captain Alastair Cook said, referring to the innings of 218 by Younus Khan which set up Pakistan’s victory.Pakistan won the first Test at Lord’s and England were victorious in Manchester and Birmingham.ENGLAND 1st innings 328 (M.
