England v Pakistanengcric

Edgbaston… Day 1 – Thursday August 17th…

England 348 for 3 (90 overs)

Ticket: £41 – Programme: £6

Day One of the first ever Day/Night test match to be played in the UK…

After the loss of a couple of early wickets (39/2 after 7.3), England dominated, moving to 348/3 by the close. Alistair Cook batted through, finishing the day on 153 not out; Joe Root made 136, sharing a partnership of 248 with Cook…

The only disappointment being that the runs continue to come from the usual suspects…

Day 2: Alistair Cook was finally dismissed for 243 as England went on to make 514/8 before declaring. West Indies progressed to 44/1 from 16 overs before rain stopped play…

Day 3: West Indies were dismissed in their first innings for 168. They followed on, making an even smaller 137, and losing by an innings and 209 runs. 19 wickets fell on the day, among them being Stuart Broad’s 384th test wicket. A dismissal which took him past Ian Botham to become England’s second highest Test wicket taker of all time…
