Pakistan vs England 1st Test Day 1 report: Virus-hit England stamped their aggressive brand of Test cricket on their first match in Pakistan in 17 years by amassing a world record 506/4 with four batters smashing hundreds on Thursday.
Zak Crawley hit 122 and Ben Duckett made 107 in a blistering opening stand of 233. Ollie Pope and Harry Brook blazed hundreds in the last session in an astonishing display of power-hitting against an inexperienced Pakistan bowling attack.
And the Test almost didn’t start.
England confirmed they had a fit 11 and the match could go ahead only two hours before the toss. Then they destroyed a host of records in only 75 overs when play ended prematurely because of bad light.
The 506-4 total was the highest on the first day of any Test, surpassing Australia’s 494-6 in 1910 against South Africa in Sydney. England also became the fastest team to score 500 runs. Four England batters scored centuries in one innings for the first time in 15 years.
Of the four centurions, Duckett was the slowest. He need 105 balls for his maiden ton. Brook took 80 balls, the third fastest by an Englishman.
Captain Ben Stokes, who won the toss and elected to bat after recovering in time from the viral bug, was not out on 34 off 15 balls. England batters smashed 73 boundaries and three sixes in a white-ball fireworks display with the red ball.
