ENG vs PAK 1st Test: England registers a record breaking 506 runs on Day 1

ENG vs PAK 1st Test: England registers a record breaking 506 runs on Day 1

ENG vs PAK 1st Test: England’s Cricket team scripted history by becoming the first team in the history of World Cricket to register more than 500 runs on Day 1 of the first Test. England’s cricket team displayed the bazball (a term used to address their aggressive style of cricket) brand of cricket by smashing Pakistan bowlers all across the park. The bowling attack of Pakistan looked toothless in front of England’s batters as the top four of them registered centuries. On the flat surface of Rawalpindi, runs were scored at almost seven runs an over throughout the day.

England’s top four batters registered gleaming tons

Riding on the back of centuries from four of England’s top batters the three lions were able to post a mammoth total of 506-4 just on the opening day of the first Test against Pakistan. Just 24 hours before the Rawalpindi Test half of England’s first-choice team was down due to a bug infection. However, the management decided to make some changes to the initial squad & began the Test on the scheduled day. Even in the absence of most of their key players, England managed to post such a huge total on board.

Openers Zak Crawley & Ben Duckett began their innings on a high note by smashing Pakistan bowlers across the park right from the word go. The duo stitched a 233-run stand to give England a gleaming start. Zak Crawley smashed 122 runs in 111 balls with 21 fours while Duckett scored 107 runs off 110 balls with 15 fours. Crawley registered the fastest ton in Test format while Duckett who returned after six years made his intentions clear by registering his maiden ton. The duo guided Engaldn to 233-5 in 36 overs before Rauf & Mahmood dismissed both of them in the second session of the game. Joe Root too got dismissed for 23 runs reducing England to 286-3 in 46 overs.

ENG vs PAK 1st Test: Pope-Brook carried the momentum ahead

But Ollie Pope & Harry Brook didn’t let Pakistan’s happiness last for long as the duo stitched respective tons to put Pakistan in a state of dismay. Ollie Pope amassed 108 runs off 104 balls with 14 fours but soon was dismissed for LBW. But Brook was going strong on the other end & stayed unbeaten at 101 for 81 balls. He smashed six fours in a single over to add one more record to his name. Ben Stokes joined Brook on the crease & was batting on 34 runs when the umpire called for stumps due to bad light. At stumps on Day 1 of ENG vs PAK 1st Test, England’s score read 506-4 in 75 overs with Brook (101*) & Stokes (34*) staying unbeaten.
