Test against England by a convincing nine wicket margin at Lord’s today with more than a day to spare. Set just 64 for victory on the fourth morning, Pakistan finished on 66 for one before lunch to go 1-0 up in the two-match series.
Earlier, resuming the day on 235 for six in their second innings, England lost their last four wickets for just seven runs in 18 balls to be bowled out for 242.
What made this loss all the more galling for Joe Root’s side was that they were outplayed in classic English conditions by a youthful Pakistan side, who displayed far greater discipline with both bat and ball.
England – 184 and 242
Pakistan – 363 and 66 for One
Pakistan came into this match on the back of a five-wicket win over Test debutants Ireland. The second Test between the two side will begin at Headingley, Leeds on Friday.
