England broke the record for the highest first-day total posted by any team in Test cricket history, thanks to three centuries from their top three (Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, and Harry Brook). England surpassed Australia, which had previously amassed 494 runs at the expense of six wickets against South Africa in Sydney in 1910.

The highest scorers for the hosts were Clem Hill (191) and Warren Bardsley (132). Until Thursday, Australia held the record for the next two entries in the tally. The second was 482/5 against the Proteas in Adelaide in 2012, and 475/2 against England at The Oval in 1934.

England broke several records on their first day back in Pakistan to play Test cricket after 17 years, including the most runs scored on the first day of a Test match. Here are a few of the records that were thrown out on day one in Rawalpindi.
