Pakistan fined for slow over-rate

Pakistan fined for slow over-rate

He and coach Trevor Bayliss do not appear tempted to change the team significantly for the second Test at Headingley on Friday - although in an interview with Sky Sports, the latter's frustration was clear.

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 attractive day in northwest London.

It started going wrong for England at the toss, when captain Joe Root chose to bat first in what proved to be good conditions to bowl. They lost five for 59 in the first innings of the second Test and worse was to follow - from 100 without loss chasing 273, they lost all 10 second-innings wickets for a further 64 to spinners Mehidy Hasan and Shakib Al Hasan to draw the series.

"We have been out-performed in all three departments, we have to be better", Root said.

Earlier, Pakistan had gained a substantial lead before England walked in to bat for their second innings as they scored 363 in reply to the Three Lions' first innings score of 184.

England's slim hopes of rescuing the game had rested with the recalled Jos Buttler and newcomer Bess, who resumed on 66 and 55 respectively. But eight balls into Sunday's play and having added only one more run, Buttler was lbw to Mohammad Abbas for 67.

Jos Buttler and Dominic Bess fought a determined rearguard action as England avoided an innings defeat by Pakistan in the first Test at Lord's on Saturday. For his terrific 8-wicket haul in the match, Mohammad Abbas was awarded the man of the match.

But after a stand of 60, the stoic Malan fell to Mohammad Amir straight after drinks - with an edge behind, where Sarfraz Ahmed took an excellent catch diving one-handed low to his left.

Anderson bowled Azhar in the third over but Sohail didn't hang around, hitting six fours and a six in a 32-ball knock.

"We have a very good bowling side".

Shane Warne the former Australian cricketer and ODI Captain of Australian cricket team congratulated Pakistan on their victory and said, "Congrats to Pakistan on their thrashing of England at Lords!"

The afternoon session saw Amir strike twice to initiate a collapse that saw England lose four wickets for 19 runs.

Pakistan came into this match on the back of a five-wicket win over Test debutants Ireland at Dublin's Malahide ground - a match played in similar conditions to those they found at Lord's.
