London: Pakistan triumph at first Test against England at the Lord's cricket ground.

Over 75.5 | Score 207 | (Finn 4*)

It's a wrap! Pakistan come out on top in the first Test against Engalnd. Yasir and Rahat pick of the bowlers for the visitors with 4 and 3 wickets to their name respectively. Push-up celebration by the Pakistani players would be remembered at Lord's for a long time.

Over 70 | Score 195/6 | (Bairstow 48*, Woakes 19*)

Jonny Bairstow edges closer towards an elusive fifty, amidst an extreme Pakistani pressure. With three batsmen already faltering in 40s, he will be hoping to become the first batsman to cross the tricky 50-run mark today. Misbah and Co. start to feel pressure


Over 60 | Score 169/6 | (Bairstow 38*, Woakes 9*)

Final session of the day so far belongs to England, with Bairstow and Woakes frustrating the Pakistanis. With the scoreboard moving at snail's pace, England's tactics clearly indicate the intentions. Probably time for Misbah to experiment as the day nears its end.


Over 49 | Score 155/6 | (Bairstow 28*, Woakes 5*)

Unnerving situation for Pakistan! Bairstow and Woakes seem to be forming a solid partnership, forcing Misbah to put the thinking cap on once again. At tea, Pakistan 4 wickets away from victory while England need another 128.


Over 40 | Score 141/6 | (Bairstow 18*, Woakes 2*)

Yasir bags Mo Ali and Gary Ballance in two consecutive overs. As soon as a batsman starts to look settled, the Pakistani bowlers strike again. It seems like learning is the only thing what Alastair Cook and Co. will be take away from this match. Visitors look set for the first win.

Pakistan strike early after lunch as danger man James Vince departs after a quick-fire 42 of 49 balls. A must for this partnership to materialize, as Pakistan edge closer to securing an emphatic victory at the Lord's cricket ground. England's chase start to look gloomy.

JM Vince c Younis Khan b Wahab Riaz 42 (49b)


Over 20 | Score 81/3 | (Vince 39*, Ballance 9*)

Rahat Ali struck again! England are having a tough time facing the left-arm pacer. Vince refusing to bow down and play safe, hitting 4s after 4s. Time for Ballance to put in his weight and build a partnership from here. First Innings Talisman Yasir replaces Rahat as Pakistan look to freshen up bowling attack.

JE Root c Yasir Shah b Rahat Ali 9 (30b)


Over 10 | Score 40/2 | (Root 8*, Vince 8*)

Rahat Ali spearheads Pakistan's bowling attack with two wickets already in bag. Time for Joe Root and James Vince to revive England's innings.

Pakistan earlier were bowled out for 215, which means England need to chase a tricky total of 283 if they are to win the match.

​Misbah-ul-Haq will be very happy with the way his men have performed in the first Test so far.

At stumps on Day 4, Pakistan were 214 for eight in their second innings at the close, a lead of 281 runs, after leg-spinner Shah took six for 72 in England`s first innings 272.

Much to the frustration of the English bowlers, Yasir Shah was unbeaten on 30.

While most of the English bowlers have been disappointing so far, Chris Woakes has emerged as the new hero for Alastair Cook.

Woakes, who was recalled to Test duty after fellow all-rounder Ben Stokes was injured during the preceding Sri Lanka series, now had an overall return of 11 for 101 -- the first time he had taken at least 10 wickets in a Test match.

It also made him the first England bowler to take five wickets in each innings of a Lord`s Test since all-round great Ian Botham did so against New Zealand in 1978.

England now need to at least equal their record fourth-inning score to win a Test at Lord`s of 282 for three against New Zealand in 2004 if they are to go 1-0 up in this four-match series.
