    'Time to move on from spot-fixing row'

    Abu Dhabi: Captain Misbah-ul-Haq says people should stop bringing up Pakistan's 2010 spot-fixing scandal, now that the side has comfortably beaten top-ranked England in their Test series.England were bowled out for just 72 on Saturday after being set a target of 145 on the fourth day of the second Test. Pakistan also won the first Test inside three days, handing Andrew Strauss's team a 10-wicket drubbing.Misbah says "the whole world should now stop talking about 2010". The case led to three Pakistan cricketers being sent to a British prison last November.Since Misbah was appointed captain in the wake of the scandal, Pakistan have not lost a Test series — winning their last four against Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and England.
