Andrew Strauss bats on the first day of England’s fourth npower Test cricket match against Pakistan at Lord’s

Andrew Strauss was dismissed for 13 as England ended day one of a weather-hit final Test against Pakistan on 39-1.

Play did not get underway until the afternoon due to rain, and spectators at Lord’s were treated to just 12.3 overs before bad light brought the day to a close.

England were put in by Pakistan, after the tourists won the toss, and were lucky not to lose both opening batsman in the 63 minutes of play that was possible.

Alastair Cook was dropped by Umar Akmal on one, before he was handed another reprieve soon after, on nine, when the TV umpire overturned an appeal for caught behind off Mohammed Asif.

Pakistan did manage to get the breakthrough when Strauss was bowled by a swinging delivery from Asif in the overcast conditions, before play was brought to a halt shortly after with England on 39-1.
