England vs Pakistan, 1st Test, Lord’s, Day 4, live cricket score

Sports       by Sarfraz Ali | Published

Jos Buttler and debutant Dom Bess scored half centuries and put on an unbeaten 125-run stand to give the hosts some semblance of a chance.

Pakistan were dismissed for 363 in reply to England's first innings 184, a lead of 179 runs, on the third day of the first Test at Lord's on Saturday.

Buttler reviewed but, with replays indicating the ball would have clipped the top of the stumps, Australian umpire Paul Reiffel's decision was upheld.

Buttler (66), a limited-overs specialist, and Bess (55), a 20-year-old spinner, displayed the kind of diligence and discipline that the top order lacked to earn England a 56-run lead by the close of play on a handsome day in northwest London.

With just 13 runs from this match, Stoneman now averages less than 20 in his last 11 innings for England.

But, in truth the damage had always been done by a pair of top-order slumps that saw England, so often dominant in early-season home conditions, dismissed for 184 in their first innings before declining to 110 for six second time around. Failing to get forward to leg-spinner Shadab Khan, the Surrey opener was bowled by one that kept horribly low and skidded onto his off stump.

Checks revealed a fracture and Azam was ruled out of the remainder of this test and for the second and final test in Leeds.

On a cloudy morning and faced with a green-tinged surface, Root opted to bat on winning the toss, only for his team to be undone by a Pakistan pace quartet that exposed their shortcomings.

Pakistan's tour began in April and has already included three matches against counties and a Test victory in Ireland.

Bess has struck more boundaries than Buttler, eight as opposed to six, but also knuckled down in the late-afternoon sunshine, giving England the slightest glimmer of ending a run of seven tests without a win. Then came the big one, captain Root, who was trapped lbw Abbas for 68.

Pakistan, whose players are effectively banned from the Indian Premier League, had arguably better preparation for this series than that enjoyed by England's Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler while they were playing in the lucrative Twenyty20 event.

Alastair Cook (1), Mark Stoneman (9) and Ben Stokes (9) failed to reach double figures, while Jonny Bairstow (0) was bowled by Mohammad Amir (2-35) for a two-ball duck as Pakistan pushed for yet another Test victory in London, having won at Lord's and the Oval on their last visit in 2016.
