Lord's Test - Highlights:

# Stuart Broad's magnificent unbeaten 125 off 220 balls - a career-best - is the highest innings by number nine batsman at Lord's, eclipsing England's Gubby Allen's 122 against New Zealand in 1931.  Allen and Broad are the only two batsmen to post hundreds at number nine at Lord's.

# Broad became the 14th batsman to register a hundred at number nine.  Shaun Pollock is the only one in Test annals to have recorded two centuries at number nine.

# Broad thus became the second batsman after New Zealand's Daniel Vettori to make a hundred at number nine against Pakistan.

# Trott and Broad were associated in an eighth wicket stand of 244 (unbroken) - England's highest against
Pakistan, eclipsing the 119 between Matt Prior and Stuart Broad at The Oval in 2010.

# The aforesaid stand is the highest by any pair against Pakistan in Tests, surpassing the 125 by Stephen Fleming and Daniel Vettori for New Zealand at Hamilton in December 2003.


# Jonathan Trott's unbeaten 149 is his third century in Tests - his first against Pakistan.

# In the course of his beautiful knock, Trott has completed his 1,000 runs in Tests, aggregating 1120 at an average of 56.00 in 13 Tests, including three hundreds and four fifties.


# Mohammad Amir (6/73) has recorded his career-best bowling performance - his third five-wicket haul and the second against England.

# For the first time in his Test career, Amir has taken five wickets or more in successive innings.  In his previous innings at The Oval, he had claimed five for 52. 

# Amir has completed his 50 wickets in Tests - 51 (ave.28.88) in 14 matches.

# Amir is the second Pakistani bowler to claim six wickets in an innings at Lord's.  Mudassar Nazar (6/32) was the first bowler to register the feat in 1982.


# Broad's first century in first-class cricket is the third by a number nine batsman for England, joining Gubby Allen - 122 against New Zealand at Lord's in 1931 and John Murray - 112 against West Indies at The Oval in 1966.
