Cricket fans have flooded social media to congratulate England on what many are calling the greatest Test victory in the countrys history. Ben Stokes menpulled off an unthinkable 74-run victoryin the first match against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, to record their first Test win in the country in 17 years.

A result looked highly unlikely after Englands mammoth 657-run first innings total was followed by 579 from Pakistan on one of the flattest and most lifeless pitches in recent memory. However, a brave call from Stokes to declare at 7-264 gave the visitors a chance and they closed out the remarkable victory in style on a thrilling final day.

Having set Pakistan a tempting victory target of 343 in four sessions on a docile track, the home side looked in the box seat to seal victory after making it to lunch at 3-169, having started day five on 2-80. Even by tea and with five wickets still in hand, the Pakistanis needed just 86 runs at roughly four-an-over to secure victory. However, the tourists took the last five wickets for 11 runs, bowling the hosts out for 268.

Pakistans last pair of Naseem Shah and Mohammad Ali resisted for nearly nine overs before the former fell lbw to Jack Leach barely 10 minutes before the scheduled end of play. After a tense wait for a DRS review England celebrated with exhausted joy. There was less than ten minutes light left.

That is one of the greatest Test match victories you will ever see, former England captain and commentator Nasser Hussain declared. It has to be one of Englands finest ever Test match wins, Another former captain Michael Atherton added: I couldnt think of another England side that would have won the game on this pitch.

Many other viewers were quick to make the same declaration, with Englands win sending social media into meltdown.

Essentially, England have taken a game on a pitch designed for a dull batting draw and converted it into a thrilling test match. I am in awe of how England are playing test cricket
