Broad bulldozed the top order with 4-36 and Anderson captured 3-35 to shoot out Pakistan for 99 but left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman grabbed 3-23 before the top-ranked team overhauled Pakistan's sixth lowest ever total against England.

Captain Andrew Strauss scored a fighting unbeaten 41 on an eventful Friday when three rulings by one of the best umpires in the world, Simon Taufel, were overturned.
