Test series[edit]

England could only draw the series with Pakistan 1–1, with the other two matches badly affected by the poor weather of the summer and left drawn. Pakistan won the final Test to square the series thanks to a marvellous seam bowling performance by Fazal Mahmood, who took 6-53 and 6-46 at The Oval.
