Pakistan in England Test Series - 1st Test

England v Pakistan

England won by an innings and 9 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

Play is due to start at 1000 GMT (1100 BST) on Friday, weather permitting Join us then for ball-by-ball text and audio commentary Match State: Day 1 - No play (rain) Match State: Stumps - Day 1 Good Morning cricket fans and welcome to ECB.co.uk and CricInfo's live commentary of the first npower test match between Pakistan and England, which is about to get underway at Lord's, the headquarters of cricket. Unfortunately the weather has not allowed for a timely start, in fact we are a whole day late Stiff, drying breeze, no surface moisture - outfield has some greasiness though, and on pressing dampness can be felt clearly - the ball would certainly become wet very quickly. The ground was not fully ready for play as at 7:30am, but, should furthur precepitation be avoided before 11am (local time), play may well be possible from the start. ECB.co.uk and CricInfo are also broadcasting Audio commentary on the Internet and also for listners of Radio Pakistan Please visit www.cricinfo.com for the audio internet commentary details and those in Pakistan only need to switch on their radios The two sides go into this eagerly awaited first test. Pakistan looking to avenge their winter loss while England looking to continue on from their success in Pakistan. Despite reported injuries to players like Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Sami, Pakistan boast of enough firepower in its line-up to down England. While Saeed Anwar, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and Yousuf Youhana will be leading their batting, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Abdul Razzaq and Saqlain Mushtaq are there to pump up the bowling. England, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence having won four test series in row, including their unexpected win over Pakistan last winter. So the Pakistan speedsters boast may or may not happen, we will have to wait and see. They, therefore, have relied on the very combination, which earned them laurels in the past months. Their only injury worry is Craig White, who is out with a back spasm. The wicket at Lord's has traditionally helped seamers especially in the early part of the season. The ball is expected to swing and bounce and it won't be surprising at all to see the winner of the toss electing to bowl first. So hold your breath and wait for this thrilling and breathtaking encounter to kick off. Keep in touch with CricInfo and enjoy your fill of world wide live cricket coverage! pakistan have won the toss and have put England in to bat
