Lord’s Test: Pakistan rolled up for 339

LONDON: Pakistan on Friday were all-out for 339 on an overcast morning during day two of the first Test against England.

Starting the day at 282/6, Pakistan added 57 runs in the span of 12 overs.

National side’s Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq stood out with a masterclass 114. His stay at the crease was curtailed by the English right-arm fast-bowler Stuart Broad with a delivery that nipped back into him.

Misbah was joined by the national side’s Twenty20 skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, who was dismissed for 25, for the start of day two after Rahat Ali was bowled on the last delivery of day one.

Misbah, after reaching his 10th Test century in his first Test in England, was not-out at 110 by the end of the first day.

It was a heroic performance as he came in to bat when Pakistan were struggling at 77/3.

The right-handed batsman led his team from the front by establishing a crucial 148-run stand with Asad Shafiq for the fifth wicket.

Shafiq, who is just a century away from breaking West Indian great Gary Sobers’ record for the most centuries at number six, was dismissed for 73.

Pakistan got off to a cautious start with the first runs coming in the third over of the innings. But first-change Woakes removed both openers with a burst of two wickets for five runs in 16 balls.

The Warwickshire all-rounder led England’s attack with four for 45.
