Pakistan registered a comprehensive win against England — fifth overall at Lord’s — to go 1-0 up in the two-Test match series.
After being ridiculed for selecting a young and an inexperienced side, Sarfraz has led them to a remarkable victory. The victory is special for a number of reasons: Pakistan’s recent Test record had been abysmal and a majority of the team had only played less than 5 Test matches prior to this game.
However, the drive to pull an upset and once again announce themselves as a strong contender in the Test format, Pakistan completely outperformed and dominated the English side.
Here is how everyone reacted to the promising victory by Pakistan:
A Great Win
Congratulations to the Pak cricket team for a great win against England at Lords. This was a team hardly any expert gave a chance of beating England & that too so comprehensively. A great team effort. Last time I landed in Karachi Pak won Champions trophy & today the Lords Test!

Thrashing of England
Congrats to Pakistan on there thrashing of England at Lords !Pakistan were terrific in all departments. What should England do followers as they’ve been ordinary for a while now ? Are drastic changes needed ? I would open with Buttler for starters @WardyShorts @MichaelVaughan

Ours Was The Victory!
A rhetorical extravagant schadenfreude performance by Pakistan in which they decimated the embellished England. Utter dissonance dominance by the orgasmic sensual bowling lineup. Ours was the victory!

Nasser Hussain "Pakistan out-batted, out-bowled, out-fielded, out-captained, out-coached and out-thought England in every single department. So much so, that if you had just turned up this week, you'd say Pakistan were the home side" #ENGvPAK
