England v Pakistan: Tourists win Lord's thriller


England was denied an unlikely Lord's victory by Pakistan as the tourists completed a 75-run win in a thrilling first Test.

Chasing 283 to win on the fourth day, Alastair Cook's side were undone by some inspired bowling.

Victory was sealed by Mohammad Amir, who was returning to Test cricket after serving a ban for spot-fixing during Pakistan's tour of England in 2010.

He shattered debutant Jake Ball's stumps and embarked on a joyous celebration which culminated in the entire Pakistan team doing military-style press-ups and a salute.
