Cricket News sort by England vs Pakistan, 1st Test at Lord's, Aug 05- 09, 2020

At 117-5, England were staring at a certain defeat. It would have been their second at home this summer, and a demoralizing one at that because the opposition had dominated for the most part of the test. But Woakes and Buttler scripted a remarkable turnaround to help their nation register a famous win. This victory will be remembered for a long time because, of late, chasing hasn’t been easy in test match cricket, especially when the target is in excess of 200. A strong team like India have faltered time and time again chasing targets around 200 in the fourth innings for the past 2-3 years, although mostly overseas. So, when Pakistan had set a target of 277 runs, Azhar Ali would have been pretty confident of defending it.
