Pakistan Won the SeriesA series which provided some absorbing Test cricket will always be remembered for England captain Mike Gatting's bust-up with umpire Shakoor Rana.
The flashpoint came during the second Test when Gatting accused the umpire of overstepping his authority in terms which attracted worldwide coverage.
A whole day was lost as Rana refused to go on until Gatting apologised, England going on to lose the series 1-0.
England were beaten in a bad-tempered opening Test and drew the other two.
The tourists had enjoyed a clean sweep in the three one-day internationals which preceded the Test series.
They won the first by two wickets at Lahore after bowling Pakistan out for 166 and then posted a score of 263-6 in the second match at Karachi, thanks to Graham Gooch's 142.
Rameez Raja (99) batted well for the home side but missed out on a century when he became the first man ever to be given out for obstructing the field in a one-day international after hitting the ball away as he tried for a second run to reach three figures.
Gooch shared a hundred partnership with Chris Broad in the third game as England made 236-8 in their 45 overs and then bowled Pakistan out for just 138, with Neil Foster taking three for 20.
The first warning signs appeared during the first Test in Lahore, which witnessed a dazzling bowling performance by Pakistan's Abdul Qadir who took 9-56 in the first innings as England were bowled out for just 175.
Pakistan tightened their grip with opener Mudassar Nazar batting superbly to reach 120 before being trapped lbw by Neil Foster as they reached a total of 392.
England collapsed to 130 all out in their second innings to lose by an innings and 87 runs, but it was overshadowed by Broad's refusal to walk after being given out caught behind.
He stayed at the crease for a full minute until partner Gooch finally succeeded in persuading him to return to the pavilion.
Broad later said that there were at least four decisions that defied belief but received a "stern reprimand" from tour management.
The incident meant the second Test began in a highly-charged atmosphere, but Broad responded with 116 and Gatting made 79 in a score of 292.
Pakistan were 106-5 when Gatting moved David Capel up from deep square leg to try and stop a single. But as the ball was about to be delivered Gatting signalled to Capel that he had come close enough.
Umpire Rana, standing at square leg decided to intervene and stopped play to inform the batsman, of Capel's new position, prompting a fierce argument with Gatting.
Rana refused to allow the match to continue on the following day on unless Gatting apologised and an acrimonious dispute nearly resulted in the cancellation of the tour.
But following pressure from the Foreign Office, who were wary of anti-British feeling, the Test and County Cricket Board issued instructions for Gatting to get the game going "at any cost" by apologising unilaterally.
By the time Gatting's enforced apology had restored an uneasy truce, six hours of playing time had been lost and then it rained.
Pakistan were finally all out on the fourth day for 191 and Gatting declared England's second innings on 137-6, leaving his bowlers only 100 minutes to bowl the home side out again.
Nick Cook bowled Mudassar for four but a halt was called after 24 overs with Pakistan on 51-1.
The third match in Karachi proved a mild affair by comparison and a draw was good enough to give Pakistan a 1-0 series win.
Capel was the mainstay of England's first innings score of 294 but was bowled by Qadir just two runs short of a hundred.
Phil DeFreitas bowled superbly for figures of 5-86 but Aamir Malik shared stands of 76 with Wasim Akram and 94 with Qadir as Pakistan took a first innings lead.
Aamir was denied a deserved century, however, when DeFreitas trapped last man Salim Jaffer lbw with the score on 353, leaving him 98 not out.
England's top order struggled again in their second innings, apart from Graham Gooch, who made 93.
Qadir collected another five-wicket haul for match figures of 10-186, but John Emburey's unbeaten 74 saw England to 258-9 on the final day before rain brought a premature end.
