Scorecard:England v Pakistan
Player:GP Swann, Umar Akmal
Event:Pakistan in England 2010

DateLine: 29th August 2010


England completed a huge innings-and-225-run victory over Pakistan, before lunch on the fourth day at Lord's, to take the series 3-1. Graeme Swann was the destroyer in chief as he claimed his ninth five-wicket haul.


Once the Pakistani innings resumed Swann made the first breakthrough when he cleaned up Azhar. James Anderson found Kamran Akmal's outside edge. Mohammad Amir was soon cleaned up by another wonderful ball from Swann that pitched middle and hit off and Wahab Riaz lobbed a simple catch to mid-on as Pakistan just caved in. Saeed Ajmal was run out by a direct from Stuart Broad, but Pakistan avoided becoming the first side to be bowled out for less than a hundred twice in a Test in England as Umar Akmal counterattacked. He and last man Asif put on 50 for the final wicket in which Umar played some lovely shots. Swann got better of Mohammad Asif when he had the tailender caught at slip when a bottom edge rebounded off this boot and flew to Collingwood at slips.
