London: England were bowled out for 272 in reply to Pakistan's first innings 339, a deficit of 67 runs, on the third day of the first Test at Lord's on Saturday.

Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah took six for 72 -- the best figures by an overseas spinner against England at Lord's since Sid Pegler's seven for 65 for South Africa in 1912.

 

Shah's return was also the second-best by any Pakistan bowler in a Lord's Test innings after medium-pacer Mudassar Nazar's six for 32 back in 1982.

England all-rounder Chris Woakes was 35 not out.

Alastair Cook, the England captain, top-scored with 81 and put on 110 for the second wicket with Joe Root (48).

But Yasir sparked a middle-order collapse when he dismissed Root as he became the first leg-spinner to take five wickets in a Lord's Test innings since fellow Pakistani Mushtaq Ahmed in 1996.

This is the first of a four-Test series.
