Pakistan dealt Babar Azam blow against England

England vs Pakistan Live Score 1st Test Day 1

England's new summer began with old failings as they were bowled out for 184 by Pakistan on day one of the first Test at Lord's.

He reached his 50 before Mohammad Amir took centre stage with two wickets in one over.

Hasan Ali was caught by Jos Buttler at gully off Anderson without scoring, but Mohammad Amir survived to the close unbeaten on 19 with Mohammad Abbas (nought) and Pakistan will bid to increase their lead before attempting to bowl England out cheaply again on day three.

On fourth day, the hosts are taking 56 runs so far.

Laze itself is not enough to cause serious burns, Babb said, unless someone is right on top of where lava enters the ocean. Tam Hunt took photos Monday of his neighbor's house, showing the ominous cracks splitting the ground under the home.

England were 179 runs behind on first innings after Pakistan were bowled out for 363 early on Saturday, with Babar Azam unable to add to his 68 after retiring hurt Friday with a broken forearm while facing Ben Stokes. Checks revealed a fracture and he was ruled out of the remainder of this test and for the second and final test in Leeds.

On a cloudy morning and faced with a green-tinged surface, Root opted to bat on winning the toss, only for his team to be undone by a Pakistan pace quartet that exposed their shortcomings.

Amir, whose career nearly came to a complete end at Lord's back in 2010 after he received a jail sentence and five-year ban from cricket for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal during a corresponding Test against England, had taken two wickets for no runs in three balls. Forced to dig in as his partners came and went in quick succession, Root briefly frustrated Pakistan with his 40th half-century in 68 Test matches.

It was in the afternoon session that Pakistan put their foot down, reaffirming their dominance in the match with four wickets in the space of 37 balls.

Congress threatens to block deal between White House and China on ZTE
President Trump said Chinese leader Xi Jinping has personally asked him to intervene to help ZTE, and he has said that he would. The U.S. will instead require the company to pay a fine, install U.S. compliance officers and change board members.

Stokes (9) then clothed Shadab straight to sub fielder Fakhar Zaman at midwicket before Abbas picked up the key scalp of Root lbw, the England skipper's review in vain with technology showing the ball, which nipped back off a good length, would have gone on to pelt leg stump.

But both batted superbly and have given England a glimmer of hope going into day four.

Jos Buttler was brought back to the Test side after his heroics in the Indian Premier League for Rajasthan Royals where he scored five fifties in a row and won matches for his side.

While those fireworks were not on show today, Buttler justified his inclusion in the team with a fifty that was just his second in first-class cricket in three years.

The Pope Tells Gay Dude "God Made You Like This "
The important thing is that the Church be a woman, that has this attitude of a bride and of a mother. That said, progress doesn't happen overnight, and this could be a sign of more changes to come.

It was probably too little too late for England, who were desperate to make a strong start to the two-Test series following their heavy Ashes defeat in Australia and a rare loss to New Zealand.
