Pakistan send England to bat
London - Pakistan captain Salman Butt won the toss and elected to field against England in the fourth and final Test at Lord's on Thursday.
After rain had washed out the morning session, Butt's decision to bowl first in still overcast conditions, which have caused problems for batsmen on both sides this series, was no great surprise.
Both teams were unchanged from last week's third Test at The Oval, where Pakistan won by four wickets to reduce England's series lead to 2-1.
Victory for Pakistan would mean they'd drawn Test series against Ashes rivals Australia and England within a matter of weeks.
If England captain Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook add 54 runs together during this match they will have become England's most productive opening pair in Test cricket.
This match saw New Zealand duo Billy Bowden and Tony Hill become the first neutral umpires from the same country to stand in a Test at Lord's.
