There are many words that could describe England’s performance in the first test at Lord’s: words like, “shambolic” and “pathetic”.

Having collapsed in both innings, losing four wickets in six runs in the second, the best England can now do is draw the series in this final test. While spin bowler Dominic Bess made a half century on his test debut, Mark Stoneman has been dropped is being replaced as an opening batsman by Keaton Jennings. However, at the rate things are going this isn’t going to stop the rot at Headingley.

England v Pakistan is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Cricket at 10.00 (play starts 11.00).
