That's all from this game! England have come back from behind and won their first game of a three-match series after a long time. They have also received 40 points in the ICC World Test Championship. Pakistan, on the other hand, will need to recover from this loss quickly and perform better in crunch situations. The next Test begins on 13th August, 2020 at 1100 Local (1000 GMT) in Southampton. Until then, cheers and take care.
Chris Woakes, the MAN OF THE MATCH, says playing positive was the way to go especially after Pope fell and he talked to Buttler about it. Adds that the idea to take it to Pakistan worked and seeing Jos Buttler bat like that was good. Says that it was a great partnership and Jos is one of the best white-ball players in the world and he showed that he can play well in Tests too. Goes onto say that he has been working hard in the nets and tried to get into form. States that he focussed on the ball and luckily, it worked. Is pleased to take the wickets of the big chaps in the Pakistan team as they can do a lot of damage.
Joe Root, the England skipper, says that it was a fantastic Test match and brilliant cricket was played for all the four days. Adds that Woakes and Buttler were pretty clever with how they played. States that it took something special but they believed that anything can happen and they never gave up. Says that Buttler did really well and he managed the risks well and how he played the spinners was fantastic to see. Adds that they need to back up their performance but realizes that they need to improve on certain aspects of the game.
Azhar Ali, the Pakistan skipper, says that it was a wonderful Test but is disappointed to be on the wrong end of it. Credits Woakes and Buttler for playing really well and they changed the momentum of the game. Adds that when someone plays like that, it is difficult to set fields. States that this innings from Woakes and Buttler was not far from how Stokes played against Australia last year. Goes on to say that they would have enjoyed more with the crowds. Says that it was a surprise that the ball did not reverse later on. States that they had the opportunity to bat England out of the game but suddenly they lost wickets and it is unfortunate not to get more runs on the board. Ends by saying that they should have defended this total.
Stay tuned for the Presentation ceremony as we find out who the Man of the Match is.
277 though still seemed a little out of reach for England on this wicket. The feeling was proving to be correct when they were five down for 117. One partnership though, one brilliant stand, two excellent individually brilliant knocks has taken them over the line. The visitors' bowlers were excellent till the Buttler-Woakes stand. The younger ones, the ones who lacked experience, probably crumbled under pressure and had no answers to the counterattack from the two. Yasir Shah, the experienced campaigner, once again impressed with a four-fer but he lacked support when needed. In the end, this could well be termed as a demoralizing loss.
For Pakistan, this is going to be a difficult loss to take. They would have felt in control of this Test right from the first day when Masood�s marathon innings took them to a competitive total. Then, Yasir�s four-fer saw them bundle out England for 107 runs less than what they scored in their first innings. England did fight back with the ball as a combined effort saw them bowl Pakistan out for 169.
What a turnaround we have witnessed! If any of you�ll thought that England would win when they lost their 5th wicket, you should probably go buy yourself a lottery ticket because we never felt so. It was a tremendous effort from Buttler and Woakes. Take a bow the two of you. A 139-run stand between the two and that too in quick time has single-handledly taken the hosts over the line. This session was all about the two. Yes, Buttler was dismissed towards the end but Woakes with the lower order ensured that the hosts get over the line.

Shaheen Afridi To Chris Woakes
EDGY FOUR! That's the end of this game! What a wonderful chase from England! They were down and out in this game but Woakes and Buttler have done it. They have won it for England. Good length ball on middle, Woakes looks to flick but it takes the leading edge and goes through the slip cordon and into the third man fence. ENGLAND WIN BY THREE WICKETS.

Pakistan lose all their reviews.

Pakistan think that Buttler has edged and they take the review. The Ultra Edge rolls in and it shows no spike as the ball passes the bat. Pakistan had to take the review in desperation and they lose one.
Is that caught behind? Pakistan certainly thinks so as they take the review. Jos Buttler is the man in question. The Ultra Edge shows no spike. Review lost.

DRINKS! Woakes and Buttler are continuing on their merry way and are taking England closer to victory. They need just 61 runs to win and if this current pair continues to bat for longer, they should be able to chase this down. Pakistan , on the other hand, need to pick up wickets as soon as possible as time is running out for them. Can they make a comeback?

Time for the final session of Day 4 and maybe the match! The Pakistan players stride out to the middle, followed by Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes. 110 runs more to win for England. Mohammad Abbas will start with the ball.
... Day 4, Session 3 ...
Pakistan's session easily but the partnership between Buttler and Woakes just gives a sense of the momentum shifting in favour of England. Pakistan is still on top but this stand might just be getting them worried. However, they were excellent right from the word go after Lunch. They got wickets once again at regular intervals and have got rid of the top and the middle order of the England side. They would know another two wickets or so and they would be into the tail. However, Buttler and Woakes are looking pretty comfortable out there especially the latter who has come out with a lot more intent. They need to go on for longer. Another 110 runs are needed and they would want this pair to score as much as possible. Can they do so, can they continue the fightback? We will find out after the break.
