London - Pakistan were dismissed for 339 after winning the toss on the second day of the first Test at Lord's on Friday.

Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan captain, top-scored with 114 as the 42-year-old became the oldest player in 82 years to make a Test century.

England pace-bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes took a Test-best six for 70 in 24 overs.

Pakistan lost three wickets for six runs in eight balls on the way to declining to 316 for nine.

Mohammad Amir making his return to Test cricket at Lord's - the scene of his 2010 spot-fixing crime - struck 12 made up of three fours before he was last man out, caught in the slips by Joe Root off Stuart Broad.

Amir, who served a five-year ban and was given a jail sentence for his part in the spot-fixing row, was jeered by some fans in a capacity crowd as he walked out to bat.

But there were only a handful of boos compared to the approximately 29 000 spectators at Lord's and the crowd were soon more interested in cheering on Woakes than jeering Amir.

This is the first of a four-Test series.
