England v Pakistan: first Test, day four Live, Pakistan Won the 1st Test against England.
WICKET! Ball b Amir 3 (England 207 all out)
Amir crashes through Ball’s defences and this is all over. Pakistan win the first Test by 75 runs.
The Pakistan team has arranged themselves in two rows. I think they are going to do push-ups again. Younis is making sure all of them are in line. And its the entire squad, even the substitutes. Five press-ups and then a jump and then a salute. They have laid a marker at Lord’s, they have sounded a warning to England and indeed to the world. “Not just in the UAE,” it reads. And nothing makes that fact more clear than Yasir Shah’s performance in this Test – 10 wickets, five on a second day pitch with not a hint of turn too. Misbah-ul-Haq, batting for the first time in England, scored a century. Asad Shafiq, hailed as one of the most technically proficient among current batsman in Pakistan, proved his mettle at Lord’s. This has been a special Test for this team.
Mohammad Amir to Ball, OUT, there it is! And it is Amir! Six years after the worst day of his life at Lord’s, he claims the final England wicket to fall that gives Pakistan a victory at this venue for the first time since 1996. It’s full, it’s straight, its quick and it cleans up the debutant Jake Ball. You can see the emotion in his eyes as he spreads his arms and takes off.
