, England shatter 111-year record for most runs on first day of Test as FOUR players hit centuries on return to Pakistan

ENGLAND have broken an 111-year old record against Pakistan for most runs scored on the first day of a Test.

The remarkable achievements comes amid a virus outbreak in the camp that excluded all but five players from training on Wednesday.

Harry Brook hit an amazing century in just his second Test

England have shattered the 494-6 record held by Australia against South Africa in 1911.

Brendon McCullum’s side ended the day on 506-4 with four players making centuries – the first time they have managed such a feat since 2007.

Harry Brook’s ton was the pick of the bunch as he recorded his first century in just his second Test match.

Remarkably, the 23-year-old managed it from just 80 balls – making it the third quickest hundred in English cricket history.
