England, resuming on an overnight 235 for six, lost their last four second-innings wickets for a mere seven runs in 18 balls on the fourth morning to be bowled out for 242. "He couldn't grab his bat properly", Pakistan physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon said. If we were to have any chance then Jos and I had to put another big partnership on and take the new ball out of play. If we could have got two or three in a cluster that would have helped but they kept getting scores.

"Normally with these fractures it varies [but the recovery time is] usually 4-6 weeks".

The outcome was an eighth successive match without a win and the need for a vast improvement in the short time before the second Test.

Bayliss also questioned whether the current framework of domestic cricket, in which several rounds of early Specsavers County Championship matches have provided taxing pitches for batsmen, is helping his situation.

Ben Stokes unfurled a few trademark attacking strokes in his 38 but he was trapped lbw by Abbas following a review and England's last five wickets crumbled for the addition of 16 runs straight after tea.

England dropped five catches in Pakistan's first-innings 363.

Realistically, after being previously outplayed in every department, the best outcome for the hosts is surely still only respectability - but following a determined 68 too from captain Joe Root, the unbroken century stand for the seventh wicket has at least ensured Pakistan must bat twice to prevail.

As she walked the red carpet on Thursday, Deepika wore a sheer embroidered gown from Zuhair Murad's Spring 2018 Bridal collection. Deepika Padukone , Huma Qureshi and Sonam Kapoor will also be at Cannes , along with Pakistani actor Mahira Khan.

England were now 236 for seven and that soon became 241 for eight, after the tourists took the new ball, when Mark Wood edged Mohammad Amir to wicket-keeper Sarfraz.

Unless they win the second and final match of the series starting on Friday at Headingley, after extending their miserable sequence of defeats to six in their last eight Tests, they will also lose a third successive series. But the chance to bat at Lord's and combine with Buttler, who left Somerset for Lancashire in 2013 meaning he left just as Bess was coming through.

Former Test pacer Sarfraz Nawaz who is in London these days attributed Lord's Test success to Pakistani bowlers' ability to bowl to a ideal line and length.

The innings ended when Amir knocked over Bess's off-stump.

It took Pakistan just 12.4 overs to reach their victory target, with Sohail hitting a six and a four against 20-year-old off-spinner Bess, who went wicketless on debut, as Pakistan sealed their to fifth win in a Test at Lord's in style. "No hundred or even closer to hundred score from any Pakistani batsmen we see, still combined batting efforts made the Teat a historic one for Pakistan". Credit to Pakistan, they bowled well and they showed some fight with the bat.

"The Malahide game was a very tough game for us".
