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".

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.
