Highlight Story

England dismissed a demoralised Pakistan side for 74 in their first innings on the third day of the fourth and final Test at Lord's on Saturday after a world record partnership between Jonathan Trott and Stuart Broad.

The Pakistan innings lasted only 2-1/2 hours after England reached 446 in their first innings. England captain Andrew Strauss immediately asked the visitors to follow on.

Off-spinner Graeme Swann took four for 12 from eight overs as Pakistan lost their last seven wickets for 28 runs.

It was their second lowest innings score against England following their 72 in the first innings of the second Test of the current series at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

After England had resumed on 346 for seven on a sunny morning, Trott and Broad overhauled the previous record eighth wicket partnership of 313 between Pakistan's Wasim Akram and Saqlain Mushtaq.

Broad, who completed a highly impressive maiden test century on Friday, drove with a fluent authority while Trott's stern concentration never wavered.

They took the total to 434 when Broad was dismissed lbw by off-spinner Saeed Ajmal for 169 in 6-1/2 hours.
