Pakistan have made a fitting reply to their one-sided loss in the previous Test match. Today, England will look to get off to a flying start with their pace attack. Pakistan's brittle batting line-up will be sorely tested but are able to come out the stronger. Stay tuned for start of the day's play and our coverage.

Welcome to day 2 of the 3rd Test between England and Pakistan. By the close of the first day, Pakistan were able to restrict the English innings to a score of 297 all out. While each of their bowlers played their part, Sohail Khan was instrumental in removing their key batsmen early on. England had to rely on performances from Gary Ballance and Moeen Ali and the partnerships they managed to stitch together.

...Day 2, Session 1...

Join us tomorrow at 1530 IST for what looks to be a thrilling day of Test cricket that can swing either way. Until then... Cheers and take care!

A beautiful showing by the visitors who have definitely announced that they don't intend for a repeat of the previous Test. They have started off on the right foot but now it is up to their unpredictable batting line up to fulfill their end. England, meanwhile, will look to pile into the batsmen with the new ball and will have an early morning advantage.

!

Amongst the batsmen, Alastair Cook was the first to show some spark, nearly reaching his fifty, but England didn't have a steady partnership going until the arrival of Gary Ballance and James Vince. Their 69-run stand and Ballance's 66-run stand with Moeen Ali held the innings together. Where other more experienced batsmen failed, Moeen Ali and Gary Ballance showed great discipline and hung in to bring up fifties each.

!

That ends the English innings, one undeniably dominated by Pakistan. England fought all the way to put up a total of 297 but they didn't have any answer to Sohail Khan, who ripped into their top order and finished with a 5-wicket haul. The rest of the bowlers were not as potent, however, each played their part and collected scalps of their own.

!

End of a fantastic day of Test cricket! Sohail Khan is all smiles as he leaves the field. Wait, he does a few push-ups before joining his teammates who are loosening up near the fence.

Sohail Khan to James Anderson

OUT! The decision stays as it is and Sohail Khan gets his maiden 5-wicket haul in Tests! He serves a beautiful inswinging delivery, landing around middle and catching Anderson on the pads who fails to keep it out. They appeal and the finger goes up. Sohail Khan is kissing the turf in jubilation as Anderson calls for the DRS. The replays show it to be clipping leg. ENGLAND BOWLED OUT FOR 297 and it will be STUMPS ON DAY 1!
