Pakistan fined for slow over-rate in first Test against England

Pakistan fined for slow over-rate in first Test against England”

Azam was unable to bat on Saturday after being forced to retire hurt on 68 after tea on Friday.

"It was nice to see the ball turn in that second innings and I personally think it could have been interesting had we managed to take it deep into day four or five and had around a 200-run lead. He couldn't grab his bat properly", Pakistan physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon said. "I came here early and played a match for Leicestershire which gave me much-needed confidence and also helped me in performing against England", he said. We just didn't follow through with that.

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.

"In accordance with Article 2.5.1 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to minor over-rate offences, players are fined 10 percent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain fined double that amount", the statement added. "Playing your first Test at the Home of Cricket - Lord's - and being named the player of the match is one of the dreams that cricketers have".

But eight balls into Sunday's play and having added only one more run, Buttler was lbw to Mohammad Abbas for 67 after missing an intended drive.

It would be England's only wicket as Pakistan knocked off the required runs easily - Haris Sohail (39no) taking a particular liking to Bess' bowling, with the Somerset off-spinner plundered for 29 runs in 3.4 overs - to take a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.

Asked what he told England's batsmen before the Lord's debacle, Bayliss said: 'It was the same as always on these type of wickets.

Amir angled one across Mark Wood to find the edge and Stuart Broad poked at Abbas.

Buttler was then 66 not out and Bess 55 not out. This is the career-best in Test matches for Hasan, who is now ranked fourth in ODIs after having attained top rank in the format in October previous year.

Sarfraz instead praised coach Mickey Arthur, who took charge two years ago and promptly guided Pakistan to a 2-2 draw in a four-Test series in England, for "taking the players along with him" - something he had also tried to do as skipper.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the meeting had been a good start, but he wanted to see guarantees materialise. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that "it won't be easy, that's clear to all of us".

When Bess, so impressive in making 57, lost his off stump to Amir, England had lost their last four wickets in the space of 18 balls.

Although Azhar was dismissed for only four, Haris made 39 not out, including a six off Bess and a leap for joy when he hit the winning runs.

The bell, which is located outside the Bowlers' Bar of the Lord's Pavilion, is rung to signify the imminent start of play, and it has become a great honour to be invited to ring it on the morning of a Test match.

"We have a very inexperienced team but we are very confident in our players".
