He got out trying to flick Stuart Broad's delivery which was bowled on his pads. Broad was the pick of the bowlers for England, as he returned with figures of 4/56. His partner James Anderson also had a successful outing as he dismissed three batsmen, while Sam Curran and Chris Woakes picked up one wicket each. Then, Shaheen Shah Afridi got Pakistan off to a great start as he removed Rory Burns in his very first over for a duck, before the bad light forced the players to leave the field. After cutting short the first session. the persistent rain completely washed out the second session. Finally, when the rain did stop, match officials decided to call off the day as the outfield had taken a great beating after hours of rain. (SCORECARD)
