... DAY 2, SESSION 2 ...
England will now look to build on this after Lunch! They will continue to play their attacking style and will hope to bat Pakistan out of the game. Pakistan on the other hand, need their bowling to deliver, their bowling department has not been great in the series so far but they need them to deliver now. Can they bowl England out for a cheap score or will the England batters continue their good form? We will find out.
England on the other hand, will be mighty pleased! Had they been given a lead of 79 at the start of the day, they would have taken it with open arms. It was Ollie Robinson who started it off but it was Jack Leach who was the pick for them with a four-fer. However, it was a combined bowling effort. Everyone except for Jacks who only bowled 4 overs picked a wicket at least.
What a session for the visitors! They have completely changed the look of this game! It all started with Pakistan in control with Babar and Saud continuing from where they left off on Day 1. They were nearing the 100-run stand before Azam fell and once he fell, it all wrong for Pakistan. First they played themselves into a shell and then kept losing wickets. From 142 for 2, they have been bowled out for 202. The hosts wll be very disappointed with their performance.
