Pakistan ground guide: Lahore

India Cricket Live

The Gadaffi Stadium has been a Test venue for 46 years, but was completely renovated before the 1996 World Cup. England won by five wickets on their first visit in 1961, but there has only been one other positive result in six other meetings with Pakistan. That occurred in 1987 when Abdul Qadir's match figures of 13-101 led to a home win by an innings and 87 runs. The game also saw controversy when England's Chris Broad refused to walk after being given out caught behind. England play two warm-up matches at the smaller Bagh-e-Jinnah ground on the other side of the city.
Pakistan have won their last three Tests at the Gadaffi Stadium - beating New Zealand by an innings and 324 runs (2002), South Africa by eight wickets (2003) and India by nine wickets (2004).
Only three of the 35 Tests at the ground have been won by the side batting first - 13 by the side batting second.
Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq made the highest Test score at the ground, an innings of 329 against New Zealand.
There have been five England centuries in Lahore Tests - by David Gower, Ken Barrington, Graham Thorpe, Dennis Amiss and Colin Cowdrey - and eight by Pakistan against them.
Only two England bowlers have taken five wickets in an innings in a Lahore Test - Norman Cowans (5-42) and Neil Foster (5-67) in the same game in 1984.
England have only won one of the four one-day internationals they have played at the ground - by two wickets in 1987.
There is a slight advantage to batting second in one-dayers at Lahore with 24 wins against 20 by the side batting first in 45. The other, between Pakistan and West Indies in 1991, ended in a tie.
Ijaz Ahmed's 139 not out against India is the highest ODI score in Lahore - South African Lance Klusener has the best bowling figures of 6-49.
No England player has made a hundred or taken four wickets or more in an innings in a one-dayer at the Gadaffi.

Lahore Cricket Test England vs Pakistan

Pakistan hit back to rock England

England squandered a good start to finish day one of the third Test against Pakistan in Lahore on 248-6. Michael Vaughan (58) and Marcus Trescothick (50) put on 101 to boost hopes of a series-levelling victory. But they and Ian Bell fell sweeping Shoaib Malik before Kevin Pietersen edged behind off Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, who also dismissed Andrew Flintoff. Danish Kaneria bowled Geraint Jones but Paul Collingwood (71 not out) rode his luck to make his maiden Test 50. They will resume on Wednesday on 248-6, with Paul Collingwood 71 not out, but he only has the tail for company.

Honours even in Lahore Test match

Pakistan lost captain Inzamam-ul-Haq through injury to leave the third Test against England evenly poised at the end of the second day's play in Lahore. At the close, the home side were 185-4 in reply to England's 288 all out. Mohammad Yousuf, dropped on 16 by Andrew Flintoff, made England pay and was 84 not out on his home ground. England resumed on 248-6 but lost their last four wickets for 40 runs. England all-rounder Paul Collingwood missed out on his maiden Test century when he fell for 96 hooking a bouncer by Shoaib Akhtar to Danish Kaneria.

Pakistan duo ruin England chances

Pakistan have all but ended England's chances of winning the third and final Test and squaring the series. By the close on day three, the home side were 446-5, a lead of 158 runs. Mohammad Yousuf (183) hit his 14th Test ton and Kamran Akmal (115) his second as they broke the Pakistan record for the highest sixth-wicket partnership. They put on an unbeaten 199 after Shoaib Akhtar was the solitary wicket to fall in the day, dismissed by Liam Plunkett for a career-best 38. That brought wicket-keeper Akmal to the crease instead of captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, who had retired hurt on 35 on the second day after being hit on the forearm by Harmison. Despite having to face the new-ball, Akmal was in good touch and reached three figures off 178 balls, including nine boundaries as he and Yousuf heaped the misery on England. He passed his previous highest Test score of 109 and was unbeaten on 115 at the close. They also beat Mushtaq Mohammad and Intikhab Alam's 33-year 145-run sixth wicket record, set at Hyderabad in 1972. Pakistan still have the luxury of calling on Inzamam-ul-Haq if they need him but with a healthy lead his services may not be required.

England dig deep in hunt for draw

Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood put on an unbeaten 91 as England reached stumps on day four in Lahore on 121-2. However, with a day remaining and the tourists 227 runs behind, Pakistan have plenty of time left to force a victory. Inzamam-ul-Haq (97) declared Pakistan's innings on 636-8, just missing a third Test ton on the bounce, after Mohammad Yousuf had completed a stylish 223. Pakistan had a lead of 348 and hammered home their advantage with two early wickets from Shoaib Akhtar. But Bell (60) and Collingwood (37) made up for the loss of the openers with a measured partnership which gave England's fans something to cheer after two-and-a-half days of misery. Yousuf recorded the fourth best score by a Pakistani in Tests against England.

Brilliant Pakistan crush England
Pak wins series 2-0

Pakistan bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Danish Kaneria struck their best form as England collapsed to defeat by an innings and 100 runs in Lahore. The tourists slumped from 201-2 at lunch to 248 all out 70 minutes after the interval to lose the three-match Test series by a 2-0 margin. Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood put on 175 for the third wicket but their good work was wasted by their team-mates. Paceman Akhtar took 5-71, with leg-spinner Kaneria claiming 4-52. At lunch, it seemed Pakistan's victory hopes were dwindling. Mohammad Yousuf, who hit a sparkling 223, was man of the match.
