England vs Pakistan Eng vs Pak Pak vs Eng Pakistan England sports news cricket Indian Express

Pakistan completed a convincing nine-wicket victory over England to win the first Test at Lord's with more than a day to spare on Sunday.

England needed early wickets and Broad snared Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq lbw for four, but the hosts failed to make another breakthrough under the floodlights.

Jos Buttler and Dom Bess shared a spirited century stand to save England from a humiliating innings defeat by Pakistan in the first Test at Lord's on Saturday.

Pakistan have been fined for a slow over-rate in their first Test win over England at Lord's.

The third day ended with England 235-6 in their second innings - a lead of only 56 runs - and still facing the likelihood of a thumping defeat.


Mahmood, who is now Pakistan's Bowling Coach, retired from worldwide cricket in 2007, having played 21 Test matches and 143 One-Day Internationals for his country in a career spanning eleven years. "We were outperformed in all three departments".

"We made a decision to do a precautionary X-ray at the end of the day's play. when we got to the hospital the X-ray confirmed that there was a fracture of the forearm, just above the wrist".

"Tomorrow we need to make it as big as we can: 150 would be great; we'd probably be trying to think more like 200". Root said his team "did some really good things leading into this week" but cautioned that it will take time for the changes in preparation and mindset to bear fruit.

Ben Stokes unfurled a few trademark attacking strokes in his 38 but he was trapped lbw by Abbas following a review and England's last five wickets crumbled for the addition of 16 runs straight after tea.

Buttler was then 66 not out and Bess 55 not out.


England were now 236 for seven and that soon became 241 for eight, after the tourists took the new ball, when Mark Wood edged Mohammad Amir to wicket-keeper Sarfraz.

It was the latest memorable Lord's incident for Amir, who took six wickets in a Test innings at MCC's headquarters in 2010 - the same match where his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal led to a jail sentence and a five-year ban from cricket.

A feature of Buttler's fine innings the previous evening was his positive footwork to the seamers, in particular, getting forward and moving across to off-stump to negate the Pakistan bowlers' probing line, but Abbas found some seam movement back into him with the wicket ball to beat his inside edge.

It took Pakistan just 12.4 overs to reach their victory target, with Sohail hitting a six and a four against 20-year-old off-spinner Bess, who went wicketless on debut, as Pakistan sealed their to fifth win in a Test at Lord's in style.
