England face Pakistan in the second Test of their three-match series after picking up an incredible win at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.
Ben Stokes’ side scored 657 runs in the first innings, with Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope and Harry Brook all scoring centuries.
Pakistan then posted a 579 tally meaning a draw seemed inevitable, but the visitors went down 264-7 before declaring there was a chance of a win or a loss.
The hosts set out to chase 343 on a flat wicket.
But a brilliant display of bowling and a brave captain saw Brendon McCullum’s men get all ten wickets in the second innings to win by 74 runs.
It was one of England’s biggest Test wins and now they can win the series in Multan.
