The away side was then left with just 64 runs to make for victory, which they chased down comfortable with nine wickets to spare. To keep the fans who had come to watch the Test engaged, the organizers set up a giant screen for them so that they could also enjoy the final of the world's leading T20 tournament.

It consigned England to yet another defeat in the Test arena after a winless winter. "These conditions suit us as well".

"We made a decision to do a precautionary X-ray at the end of the day's play. when we got to the hospital the X-ray confirmed that there was a fracture of the forearm, just above the wrist".

England's Joe Root looks dejected. It had put his team on the back foot, a position from which they never receovered.

Nasser's words make sense and paint the picture perfectly and completely, since England were always chasing the rabbit after being bowled out for 184 in the first innings, but credit can not be taken away from Pakistan in any way.

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.

"We have looked at things", he added. And we have to bat better. "I shout and scream at my players - everything is right in front of you". The only other team with more wins than losses against England at Lord's is Australia, who have won 15 and lost seven, according to BBC.

"Putting that practice into the game is where it's really disappointing because it didn't happen". Back then West Indies, still led by Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh in their pomp, routed them by nine wickets at Headingley.

In fact in nearly all areas, Pakistan were everything that England were not.

England are historically hard to beat in home Tests starting in May - they've lost just three out of 33.

Mahmood, who is now Pakistan's Bowling Coach, retired from global cricket in 2007, having played 21 Test matches and 143 One-Day Internationals for his country in a career spanning eleven years. After enduring a few jitters in the course of England's mini-revival on the third evening, normal service was resumed in emphatic fashion on the fourth morning at Lord's. "We know we are under-performing".

"We've got to get ourselves in a position to do that, that's a long way ahead". It's not doing a great deal for Trevor Bayliss as coach because that team today looked like they need coaching.
