Nottingham:

Pakistan were set a record-breaking target of 435 to win the first Test after England declared their second innings on 262 for nine on the third day at Trent Bridge on Saturday.

Matt Prior was 102 not out and Steven Finn nine not out after an unbroken last-wicket stand of 49.

The most any side has ever made in the fourth innings to win a Test is the 418 for seven scored by the West Indies against Australia in Antigua in 2003.

Pakistan's equivalent record is the 315 for nine they scored against Australia at Karachi in 1994.
