260s are the targets which got to be chased in One Day Internationals particularly when they are played in subcontinent-esque conditions. Pakistan were humbled 130 all out in pursuit of target of 261 set by England in 1st ODI of four-Match series at Abu Dhabi. Their bowlers, spinners in particular, did not perform that bad. It was their batting which did them all humiliation. Irony is teams strengthen the department
