Yasir Shah rocked England with two quick wickets on Day 4 leaving England with 4 wickets in hand and they still need another 148 runs to win the first Test at Lord’s. Gary Ballance and Jonny Bairstow were set at the crease when Yasir bowled his magical delivery in the 38th over. The delivery was followed by the cricket fraternity as fans took over social media with hilarious and amazing reactions as they were reminded of Andrew Strauss’s dismissal off Shane Warne in Ashes 2005. Yasir managed to impart unbelievable turn. While Ballance tried to flick it to the square-leg, he missed it and the ball kissed the top of leg. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: England  vs  Pakistan, 1st Test at Lord’s

The bails were dislodged, taking Pakistan closer to a significant victory on the English soil. Moeen Ali became Yasir’s second victim of the innings and eighth overall in the match when Yasir struck again in his very next over. It was the 40th over with the English side under immense pressure after their tail had begun. Moeen went forward to smash it over the spinner’s head but in return he only managed an inside edge that shattered his stumps.

Earlier, Rahat Ali picked 3 wickets — Alastair Cook, Alex Hales and Joe Root — to derail the strong English batting line-up and put Pakistan in serious contention of winning the Test at Lord’s. The other wicket was picked by Wahab Riaz. He dismissed James Vince in the 24th over. Vince scored a 49-ball 42.
