Mohammad Amir took the winning wicket on his return to Lord's after a spot-fixing scandal as Pakistan beat England by 75 runs on the fourth day of the first Test.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah grabbed 4-69 for his maiden Test haul of 10 wickets as England was bowled out for 207 after Pakistan set a challenging target of 283 to win.

Jonny Bairstow top scored with 48 and defied Pakistan for over two hours with Chris Woakes (23) in a seventh-wicket stand of 56 but once Shah removed both, Amir wrapped up the innings quickly.

A series of middle order cameos couldn't stop wickets tumbling for England

England batsmen James Vince, Gary Ballance and Jonny Bairstow each passed 40 to provide some resistance but all gave their wickets away before they could reach half centuries.
