Ball tampering - Eng awarded 4th test

England awarded the match after Pakistan refused to return to the field after the tea interval. This was in protest against the ball tampering charge made by the umpires Darry Hair(Aus) and Billy Doctrove(WI), who challenged the ball during the 56th over of the English 2nd innings. 5 runs were awarded for ball tampering and the ball changed. This is the first time in cricket history that match officials have decided the result. Pakistan were in a very strong position with England down 4/298, still trailing by 33 runs and 1 day and the post tea interval still remaining. Why did Inzy refuse to take the field ?
