LONDON (AFP) - Pakistan collapsed spectacularly yet again this series as England closed in on an innings victory in the fourth and final Test at Lords on Saturday. Pakistan, following-on, were 41 for four in their second innings when rain forced an early close on the third day, having been made to follow-on after they were dismissed for just 74 first time around. That left them still 331 runs adrift of Englands first innings 446 as the home team eyed a victory that would give them a 3-1 win in their last series before begin the defence of the Ashes in Australia in November. Pakistans three lowest totals against England have all been made during this series. They were skittled out for 80 in a 354-run first Test loss at Trent Bridge and dismissed for 72 in a nine-wicket second Test defeat at Edgbaston. It appeared the damage at Lords was done as much as anything by a world record eighth-wicket stand of 332 between Jonathan Trott (184) and Stuart Broad (169) which rescued England from the depths of 102 for seven. Pakistan were playing their sixth Test in England in seven weeks, having previously drawn a two-match series against Australia 1-1, and there were signs that punishing schedule had finally caught up with them. They lost seven wickets for 28 runs after tea on Saturday with off-spinner Graeme Swann taking four for 12 in six overs and fast bowler Steven Finn three for 13 in five. Pakistan captain Salman Butt top-scored with 26 in an innings where only three batsmen made it into double figures. Earlier story on Sports Page
