It was a remarkable day for Pakistan to beat England in the heart of Lord's cricket ground by 75 runs. The victory came after a spell of 20 long years.

While performing brilliantly himself, Misbah scored a century at the age of 43 years in the first innings to go down in the history books being the oldest to score a ton. Not only him, another emerging bowler Yasir Shah took five wickets in the first innings and also broke a 20 years old record. Yasir was declared man of the match for bagging 10 wickets in both innings.

At the end of the match, the Pakistan team not only dedicated the victory to Abdul Sattar Edhi, the Pakistani philanthropist who died earlier this month, but also thanked Pakistan Army for arranging a rigorous pre-departure camp to keep the boys in super fit shape.
