Yasir Shah six gives Pakistan 67-run lead against England

LONDON: England were bowled out for 272 in reply to Pakistan´s first innings 339, a deficit of 67 runs, on the third day of the first Test at Lord´s on Saturday.  Utv Pakistan Report

Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah took six for 72 — the best figures by an overseas spinner against England at Lord´s since Sid Pegler´s seven for 65 for South Africa in 1912.

Yasir Shah six gives Pakistan 67-run lead against EnglandShah´s return was also the second-best by any Pakistan bowler in a Lord´s Test innings after medium-pacer Mudassar Nazar´s six for 32 back in 1982.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes was 35 not out.

Alastair Cook, the England captain, top-scored with 81 and put on 110 for the second wicket with oe Root (48).

But Yasir sparked a middle-order collapse when he dismissed Root as he became the first leg-spinner to take five wickets in a Lord´s Test innings since fellow Pakistani Mushtaq Ahmed in 1996.

This is the first of a four-Test series.Utv-Line
