Pakistan beaten by an innings as England level series

Ben Stokes

Stokes hit 47 runs in England's defeat to Pakistan in the first Test at Lord's

One eagle-eyed viewer spotted a motivational message written on the handle of Buttler's bat today, that appears to say "fuck it".

England added 32 runs to their overnight score of 106-2 before their skipper nicked a full-length Mohammad Amir delivery through to Sarfraz Ahmed, falling five short of his half century.

The future is bright.

It was also England's first victory in a Test match since they beat the West Indies at Lord's in September, with the side having endured a winless run of six defeats in eight Tests coming into this fixture.

Buttler finally ran out of partners after hitting 11 fours and two sixes when last man Anderson was caught in the slips.

Although Azhar Ali clubbed James Anderson's first ball to the boundary, the paceman soon got his revenge by clattering the opener's stumps after a quickfire 11.

Imam-ul-Haq (34) and Usman Salahuddin (33) added 42 runs in a fourth-wicket stand before Pakistan lost its last seven wickets for 50 runs.

Any hope Asad Shafiq, one of Pakistan´s more experienced batsman, might steady the innings ended when he was given out on review for five after a thin glove behind down the legside via a thin glove off Broad.
