Pakistan took a 1-0 lead in the series after beating England by 75 runs at Lord's. That is the simple version but there were multitudes contained within as Misbah-ul-Haq's irrepressible side took the ten wickets they required for victory on the fourth day, four of them going to the talismanic Yasir Shah on the way to match figures of 10 for 141 in his first Test match outside of Asia.

Set 283 to win after dismissing Pakistan inside the first ten minutes of the morning session, England's batsmen struggled to build partnerships. Only when Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes were putting together a stand of 56 over 31.4 gruelling overs did Misbah have to seriously ponder where a wicket was coming from.

The breakthrough came from Yasir, although there was little sleight of hand about a long hop that Bairstow simply missed attempting to swat through the leg side. His distraught reaction, head bowed over his bat as the Pakistan players celebrated around him, provided an illustration of England's disappointment.

Yasir's tenth wicket practically sparked a playground bundle as Woakes was taken at slip trying to hit out with No. 10 Steven Finn for company and 79 still required. Mohammad Amir rattled Jake Ball's stumps an over later to put the final seal on an emotional comeback six years after his previous Test appearance.
