186

Paul Collingwood scored his first century at Lord’s when he hit 186 versus Pakistan in 2006.

Batting at five, the Durham all-rounder combined some trademark solid defence alongside some superb shots in an innings that included an impressive total of 23 fours.

Collingwood’s century – England’s 700th Test hundred – was also special for the fact that he shared a partnership of 233 with Alastair Cook – who also hit 100 during the Test – to claim a record for his country’s fourth wicket against Pakistan.

The duo’s tally would guide the hosts to declare on 528/9 after their first innings, but Pakistan would go on to frustrate England by holding out for a draw at the conclusion of day five.
