Pakistan fined for slow over-rate during Lord’s Test

Pakistan fined for slow over-rate during Lord’s Test”

Mohammad Amir took two wickets in three balls as Pakistan closed in on an innings victory inside three days in the first Test against England at Lord's on Saturday.

Coach Trevor Bayliss says he expects a response from his "embarrassed" England side in the final Test against Pakistan at Headingley on Friday.

What made this latest reverse all the more embarrassing for England is that they are traditionally tough to beat at home in May, with many touring sides struggling to adjust when typically English conditions - overcast skies and green-tinged pitches - are at their most pronounced.

England defeated South Africa and West Indies at home past year, but were outclassed by Australia in the Ashes and also lost a two-match series to New Zealand in March.

Broad edged Abbas to Sarfraz without scoring and Amir comprehensively bowled the 20-year-old Bess for 57 to dismiss the hosts for 242 as England lost their last four wickets for the addition of six runs.

Following a winter when they did not win in seven Tests in Australia and New Zealand, this is an very bad result for England, who spoke before this match of returning to winning ways and developing skills that will make them more competitive in foreign conditions. Dom Bess, making his debut, scored five before giving Shafiq another catch off Abbas, Stuart Broad was lbw to Abbas for nought and Mark Wood was caught by a diving Amir at mid-on for seven.

The evening session was maybe the first Pakistan has lost all test.

"Not good enough", was the captain's blunt assessment during a post-match presentation at Lord's.

Mohammad Abbas, with match figures of 8-64, was named the man of the match.

Amir and Abbas finished the innings with four wickets apiece.

England found themselves with a huge first-innings deficit of 179 runs after Pakistan, 350 for eight overnight, saw their first innings end on 363.

The outcome was an eighth successive match without a win and the need for a vast improvement in the short time before the second Test. "A fourth-innings score, chasing down a total, is never going to be easy - if we can get our way up to a challenging total".

Talking to The News from London just after Pakistan's nine-wicket win Sunday, Sarfraz said it was an exciting experience to see Mohammad Abbas bowling to a line that could be called ideal for English conditions.

"We have a very inexperienced team but we are very confident in our players".

The bell, which is located outside the Bowlers' Bar of the Lord's Pavilion, is rung to signify the imminent start of play, and it has become a great honour to be invited to ring it on the morning of a Test match.
