Pakistan clash against England in a 2-Test series, after their win over Ireland last week.

Babar top-scored with 68 in Pakistan s stumps total of 350 for eight - a lead of 166 runs after they bowled England out for 184 in their first innings.

A quartet of batsmen made fifties, with England dropping four catches and missing one other obvious chance.

After a miserable winter in Australia and New Zealand, England had a day to forget as they kicked off a new worldwide season against Pakistan at Lord's. The first Test is scheduled to begin at Lords, London at 10:00 AM GMT or 3:00 PM PST.

Pakistan are in control of this first NatWest Test and have the opportunity to inflict a defeat that would hurt England even more than all the winter hammerings in Australia.

Amir put paid to Cook's hopes of a fifth Test ton at headquarters, though, and England wilted once he fell, with Stokes, who hammered leg-spinner Shadab Khan for the innings' sole six, out lbw to Abbas on review in his first game at home since the second ODI against Windies in September.

Hasan Ali was caught by Jos Buttler at gully off Anderson without scoring, but Mohammad Amir survived to the close unbeaten on 19 with Mohammad Abbas (nought) and Pakistan will bid to increase their lead before attempting to bowl England out cheaply again on day three.

Pakistan lost Imam-ul-Haq, trapped lbw to Stuart Broad for 4, early in the reply but Azhar Ali (18) and Haris Sohail (21) held out in the face of some probing seam bowling by Broad, Jimmy Anderson and Mark Wood.

Jonny Bairstow, promoted to number five, looked solid for 27 in stand of 57 with Cook, but he was bowled pushing at Faheem Ashraf.

Cook, England's all-time leading Test run-scorer, benefitted from an "umpire's call" lbw review verdict on 23 and went to fifty with a four to third man off Amir.

The 20-year-old spinner Dominic Bess is expected to make his debut, as England have dropped Moeen Ali for this series.

Many England fans may have emulated Stokes' reaction just two balls later when Buttler, playing as a specialist batsman at No.7, was caught brilliantly in the slips.

And it was not long before England's 168 for six became 168 for seven.
