12.4 Dom Bess to Haris Sohail

FOUR! Dom Bess to Haris Sohail. Off break full toss, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Four more for Sohail who flicks Bess through mid-wicket and wraps up the match in the process. Pakistan have claimed a nine-wicket victory here and it has been fully deserved. They were the better side right from the off here at Lord's and England haven't been able to match them throughout. Sohail finishes on an unbeaten 39 from just 32 deliveries as Pakistan had no problems chasing down this measely target set for them by England. Pakistan's bowling was good throughout, Abbas claiming eight wickets in all as England lacked the discipline needed to create a battle between the two sides. Pakistan had a very solid first innings in which Azam finally found some form, that was before he was forced off with an injury, but good contributions all round saw them put themselves in a very commanding position going into England's second innings. Root once again made 50 but couldn't convert it into a century as the England innings crumbled, only to be saved by an impressive seventh wicket partnership between Buttler and Bess. It was far from enough though and Pakistan go home happy, taking a 1-0 lead into the second and final Test match of the series at Headingley.

12.1 Dom Bess to Haris Sohail

SIX! Dom Bess to Haris Sohail. Off break full toss, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. A full-toss from Bess and Sohail gets down to it nicely and slog-sweeps the ball all the way for six over mid-wicket. Lovely stroke.
