  • Trophy shared. Tour ended. Pakistan's stay in Europe ends. How often have you seen no century scored in a Test series? We'll let you find that out. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, goes Newton's third law of motion. England though, have given more than that. After being tamed at Lord's inside four days, they've retaliated in such a way that Pakistan were handed an innings defeat inside three days. Opposite, yes, but equal? Maybe not. Well, our company with you ends with this note. We'll see you soon with some international cricketing action. Meanwhile, you may switch over to the Afghanistan-Bangladesh game if you're feeling T20 deprived. Till the next time, cheers! Ta-ta! Take care!
  • Now, both Joe Root and Sarfraz Ahmed pose with the trophy on the podium. Sharing is a good habit, as taught in schools. With a win and loss each for both the sides, they may well have to share the silverware. The effect of franchise cricket is seen here as well, as the players from either sides chat with each other. Fakhar Zaman and Jos Buttler were seen having some talk while the two emerging youngsters, Shadab Khan and Dominic Bess, were seen hanging out as well. Perhaps they'll be planning the evening get together, now that the game has ended early.
  • The England captain, Joe Root, says that they spoke as a group after the loss in the first Test and talked about playing with pride and enjoying. States that they learned pretty quickly and that resulted in this turnaround. Reckons that his two swing bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad didn't let them down and were ably backed up by the others. Reasons that the nature of the pitch resulted in no tons being scored in the series. As a result, he credits the ground staff for preparing good wickets. Opines that they still have a long way to go in being consistent and will strive for that. Lauds the youngsters Keaton Jennings and Dominic Bess by saying that they turned up well and grabbed their opportunities. Confesses that they were lacking confidence in the first Test after a tough winter. Seems confident about beating India if they play the brand of cricket they did here.
  • Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan skipper, asserts that even though batting first was right, the batters let them down. Credits the opposition for bowling well in the first couple of sessions. States that they weren't as disciplined as they were in the first Test. Iterates that dropping catches are a part of the game and would look to improve on that. Reckons that with a young side at hand, it's always a learning curve and the process is in place. Ends saying that he is proud of his side, specially with the way they played right from Malahide.
  • The Man of the Series award goes to Mohammad Abbas. He is mainly adjudged so as he helped Pakistan win the Lord's Test with his bowling. Wasim Akram joins in as the translator for the youngster. The young seamer begins thanking the Almighty. He says that he feels disappointed to not help his side win the series. Talks about focusing on landing the ball in right areas. Adds that irrespective of the success you get or not, he strives for the same. States that he didn't panic when the opposition batters decided to use their feet but decided to concentrate on his strength. Ends wishing the Pakistan legend a happy birthday.
  • Jos Buttler is the Man of the Match. He says it's great to be back in the Test side and to contribute to the win. Reckons that the conditions were such that the bowlers were always in the game. Adds that they looked like picking wickets with each delivery. Lauds his side for coming here and turning things around after a tough week at Lord's. He talks about playing as per the situation, when asked if he decided to have fun when Stuart Broad walked out to bat. Statest that it feels good when someone has faith in you and gets you in the Test side and then when such a performance comes out.
  • They say bat once and bat big in Tests. England set out in that earnest. Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings strung together a 50-run opening stand, doing so for the first time after 12 innings. Cook, Joe Root and Dominic Bess got into the 40s, but couldn't go beyond that. Then it took a Jos Buttler brilliance for England to stretch their lead to a good hefty 189. The ODI wicketkeeper couldn't find company for him to get to an elusive Test ton. That lead proved a bit too much for Pakistan who ended up capitulating and conceding the game to the hosts. Be here with us to see what the captains have to say...
  • Earlier in the game, sunny conditions forced Sarfraz Ahmed to win the toss and chose to bat. But like it was playing hide and seek, it went into a hiding. With that for help, England's seamers made merry to keep the tourists quiet and strangled them to a low score. Pakistan could perhaps thank Shadab Khan for dragging their score above 150.
  • In a wicket-taking fest, Dominic Bess, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes joined the party. The spinner picked up three to go with his effort with the bat and the stunner that he took to get rid of Haris Sohail. There's pretty much nothing to write about Pakistan's show (or no show) in this innings apart from the 42-run stand between Imam ul Haq and Usman Salahuddin.
  • Talking about redemption, James Anderson and Stuart Broad have bowled themselves back into form and England to victory. What it also does is paint a sad picture that if they fail to strike regularly, the side struggles. The duo began in the right manner in this innings as well. Teasing and beating the outside edge of the blade, they sent back Azhar Ali, Haris Sohail and Asad Shafiq pretty early. That exposed the frail middle order of Pakistan.
  • What a turnaround it has been for England. Down and out at Lord's, redemption at Headingley. An abject surrender like the one we've just had was just not expected. Well, they say expect the unexpected from Pakistan and that's what it has been. Just three of their batters entered double figures and that says it all.
  • 45.6OUT! That will do! ENGLAND WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 55 RUNS! Broad slants in a back of a length ball on middle, Abbas sticks back inside the crease to fend it off but it takes the shoulder of the bat and flies straight to Root at third slip. The English skipper makes no mistake and the hosts finally taste some success in Test cricket, after 8 matches. Smiles all around, the players are shaking hands and thanking the crowd as well. A neat performance to end the series 1-1.
  • 45.5Late swing and it's so late that it swings after beating the bat of the batsman. Broad angles in a length ball on off, Abbas pushes inside the line and misses.
  • 45.4Back of a length ball angling down the leg side, Amir turns it through square leg and picks up a single.
  • 45.3This one is too straight in line and it has been tickled behind square leg for a single.
  • 45.2Alters his length and goes short. Bangs it in around off and Abbas sits underneath it.
  • 45.1Fuller and on off, Abbas covers the line and blocks it back.
  • 44.6Four byes! That one probably hit the footholes. It spins big after landing around off, beats the swinging bat of Amir and goes past the keeper and first slip. Cook attempted to catch it by stretching his right hand but fails. Bonus runs but that's only going to narrow down the defeat margin. 132/9
  • 44.5Quicker and flatter on off, cracked off the back foot but straight to point.
  • 44.4Beaten! Amir aims for another slog sweep but this time the ball spins away after landing on off and beats the outside edge of the bat.
  • 44.3FOUR! A flighted ball landing just outside leg, Amir clears his front leg and heaves it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 44.2Pitches it full and around off, Amir drives it down to mid off.
  • 44.1Shortish and close to the off stump line, Amir cuts it to cover-point.
  • 43.6Wow, a big swing and a miss! A length ball outside off, shaping away from the batsman, Abbas winds up for a big heave-ho across the line but fails to make any connection. 124/9
  • 43.5Gets on the front foot and defends it to the off side.
  • 43.4Bouncer! The batsman ducks in time to let that one go over him.
  • 43.3Abbas has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 43.2Good length ball again, angling in with some extra bounce, Abbas fails to get it away and it goes off his pads to the leg side. He wants a single but it's not on.
  • Mohammad Abbas is the last batsman for Pakistan.
  • 43.1OUT! That's a super grab, Chef! A good length ball is angled into the batsman from wide of the crease. It probably straightens a bit after hitting the deck as Hasan without any footwork has a tame push inside the line. Gets a thick outside edge which flies behind and Cook at first slip dives across to his left to take a brilliant catch. The keeper could have gone for the catch but Bairstow didn't move at all. Good for England and they are now one wicket away from leveling the series.
  • 42.6Tossed up ball on off, driven back to the bowler. 124/8
  • 42.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 42.4Chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 42.3Fullish and on middle, knocked down to mid on.
  • 42.2That spun big! It landed outside off and kept on turning away from the batsman, Amir initially shows interest to play at it but then pulls out after seeing the excess spin.
  • 42.1Aerial but safe! Hasan aims to clear mid-wicket again. Goes down on one knee but the line is outside off and he has to drag it from there. As a result, he ends up mistiming it in the air. The fielder runs forward from the deep but the ball lands safely in front of him. A single picked.
  • 41.6Digs in a short ball, Amir defends it from the back foot. 123/8
  • 41.5Gets across the stumps and works it on the leg side for a single.
  • 41.4Short and outside off, Ali decides to go after it this time. Tries to pull but ends up flat-batting it towards mid off. More like a tennis forehand.
  • 41.3Missing leg! Broad angles in a shortish length delivery, landing around middle and sliding down. Ali clears his front leg and attempts for a big heave across the line. Misses and is hit on the back leg. They appeal but to no avail. England review but the Hawk Eye shows it to be missing leg comfortably. A review lost for the home team.
  • 41.2Another bumper and Hasan is holding himself back. Ducks again.
  • DRS time! The appeal for an lbw against Hasan Ali is not upheld by the umpire and Joe Root opts for the referral. Looks to be missing leg. Let's see...
  • 41.1Bouncer! The batsman ducks under the bouncer at the last moment.
  • 40.6Stretches forward and pushes it through mid on for one. 122/8
  • Physio comes out. He has a look at Jennings, who has a cut on his nose. Going off the field and rightly so. Should check for concussion. Jordan Thomson is the substitute fielder. Meanwhile, it's Alastair Cook who is standing at FSL now.
  • 40.5Bang on the helmet! That's a nasty blow! No, the spinner has not bowled a bouncer and hit the batsman. It's the batsman who has played a full-blooded sweep shot which has crashed into the helmet of Jennings at short leg. The fielder was looking to duck and cops a blow on his helmet. He is looking a bit rattled.
  • 40.4Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 40.3SIX! What was he doing in the dressing room! First ball he receives his half and he has dismissed it over mid-wicket. With the spin he goes and has cleared the fence with utmost ease. There was a fielder in the deep but he was a mere spectator.
  • Hasan Ali walks in next with his side trailing by 74 runs.
  • 40.2OUT! Soft dismissal! Bess switching ends and picking wickets. He has three wickets, of which, two have come from this end and one from the other. Salahuddin after showing a lot of patience and resilience finally loses it. An inviting delivery, tossed up and around middle, Usman tries to pump it over the bowler's head but mistimes his shot straight into the hands of Root at mid on. All the hard work done goes down the drain. He lasted for 102 balls and should be credited though for spending some time in the middle when others showed urgency to get back to the dressing room.
  • Now that the spinner has come back, the batters from the Asian side would be aiming to somehow survive till Tea. Perhaps that could be the right way forward, take one thing at a time.
  • 40.1Fuller and on middle, flicked away through mid-wicket for a run.
  • Change of ends again for Dominic Bess.
  • 39.6The answer is no. It's been bowled full again, outside off, Usman pushes it off his front leg to covers. End of the over where he kept waiting for the bouncer. 114/7
  • Deep square leg comes back in. Playing mind games. Will Broad drop one short now?
  • 39.5Fuller in length and outside off, Usman defends it off his front foot.
  • 39.4Sound defense on this occasion. Salahuddin is nicely forward to this delivery and brings down a straight bat in defense.
  • 39.3Beaten! Again, the length is not short as Broad hurls it on a good length around off. It moves away a bit after landing, Usman pushes inside the line only to get beaten.
  • 39.2Lands it on a length just outside off, moving back in a shade, Usman is forward in defense. With two batsmen back for the hook shot, Broad wants to keep the batsman guessing...
  • Square leg drops back. Short stuff for Salahuddin?
  • 39.1A length ball angling down the leg side, from around the wicket, Amir works it in the gap at mid-wicket and takes a single.
  • Stuart Broad is back into the attack.
  • 38.6On a length around off, shaping in, Salahuddin defends it safely. 113/7
  • 38.5Played to the point region by the batsman.
  • 38.4Curran delivers it full and outside off, Usman drives but finds mid off.
  • 38.3Shortish and on middle, Salahuddin gets back to defend it with a soft bottom hand.
  • 38.2Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 38.1Fullish and around leg, it's eased down through mid-wicket. Broad chases it down from mid on and they take a couple.
  • 37.6Flighted and full outside off, stroked to covers. 111/7
  • 37.5Just short! Bess tempts the number 9 with a nicely flighted ball outside off. Amir jumps down the track and goes hard at it. Fails to get any timing and it goes aerially past the left side of one of the two short cover fielders. There was a confusion over a run also but no harm done eventually.
  • 37.4Skidding back into the batsman from around off, Amir lunges to defend but it takes the inside edge and rolls towards short leg.
  • 37.3Presses forward to a full ball and drives it down to mid off.
  • 37.2Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • Mohammad Amir is in next.
  • 37.1OUT! Nelson strikes! Bess gets his second wicket. A poor shot attempted by Faheem. Tries slogging a full ball across the line but it spins away to catch the top edge. The ball balloons in the air and Dawid Malan at backward point takes the skier with ease. Going against the spin wasn't the smartest of choices by Faheem. England three away from a win now.
  • 36.6Fullish and on off, blocked back to finish the over. 111/6
  • 36.5Length ball on off, defended back to the bowler.
  • 36.4Just short! Full and angling away from the batsman, Usman slices his attempted drive and it goes on one bounce to gully. Bess collects it.
  • 36.3Was that edged? A length ball angling down the leg side, Salahuddin tries to flick but fails to middle his shot. It goes behind and there is some sound, however, the keeper fails to pouch it. The replays though show that it brushed the thigh pad and there was no wood involved. Bairstow will be a relieved man.
  • Wasim Akram (on air) is impressed with the bowling action of Sam Curran. However, he wants him to work on his followthrough.
  • 36.2Curran goes full again, around off, Salahuddin defends it back.
  • 36.1Fullish and on off, it's blocked back to the bowler.
  • 35.6This one is on the pads and it has been eased behind square leg for a single. 111/6
  • 35.5Strides forward to a full ball and blocks it on the leg side.
  • 35.4Almost hit the stumps! A straighter one just outside off, Faheem commits himself on the front leg as he looks to defend it with the spin. But it skids through to beat the inside half of his bat. Bairstow fails to pick that one either and as a result, they cross for a bye.
  • 35.3Floated delivery, full and just outside off, Faheem takes a good stride forward as he drives it to mid off.
  • 35.2A shade quicker through the air, on the shorter side around off, Usman gets back and cuts it to point for a single.
  • 35.1Flighted and around leg, it's played off the pads to short leg.
  • 34.6Hits the yorker mark around off, Faheem keeps his eyes glued to the ball as he digs it out on the leg side. 108/6
  • 34.5Angling into the batsman this time, around middle on a fuller length, Faheem is right behind the line as he blocks it back to the bowler.
  • 34.4Gets on the front foot this time and pushes it with an angled bat to point.
  • 34.3Curran gets very full this time, around off and moving away a bit, Ashraf drives it to mid off.
  • 34.2Good leave. On a length just outside off, shaping back in a bit, Faheem covers his stumps and shoulders arms.
  • 34.1A good length ball on middle, Usman helps it through backward square leg for a run.
  • 33.6Loopy and full outside off, Ashraf drives it off his front foot to covers. 107/6
  • 33.5Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 33.4Fires it full and on the pads, Salahuddin flicks but finds the short leg fielder.
  • 33.3Driven through the covers by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 33.2Leans forward to a full ball and blocks it down.
  • 33.1Full and flighted outside off, driven straight to covers.
  • 32.6Shortish and on off, Salahuddin defends it by covering the line. He has grown in confidence in this innings. Making a conscious effort to get behind the line. 105/6
  • 32.5Another good looking drive from the bat of Salahuddin. But once again the placement is not good. This time it's straight back to the bowler.
  • 32.4Fullish and on off, it's driven off the front foot but straight to mid off.
  • 32.3Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 32.2Shortish and on off, defended back to the bowler.
  • 32.1A nicely timed flick shot by Salahuddin but once again Anderson is excellent in the field. Stops the ball cleanly and keeps the batsmen to their respective ends.
  • 31.6Flatter and shorter just outside off, Ashraf cuts from the crease but finds the point fielder. 105/6
  • 31.5Not out! Now, we know why! Direct hit was the need of the hour. Ball - A flighted full ball on the pads, Usman flicks it to the right side of the mid-wicket fielder and calls his partner for a quick single. Faheem responds and scoots to the other end as the fielder fires his throw at the striker's end. Bairstow collects it and breaks the stumps. They appeal and the square leg umpire goes upstairs. The replays show that Ashraf is safely in and a direct hit would have brought curtains to his innings.
  • Shout of a run out. Referred upstairs.
  • 31.4Loopy and on off, Salahuddin has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 31.3Flighted and on middle as Bess comes from 'round the wicket to Usman. The batsman however easily defends it towards mid on.
  • A leg gully in place now.
  • 31.2This time spin and extra bounce, outside off, Faheem drives it in the air and is lucky it goes in the gap at covers. A single taken.
  • 31.1A hint of away spin from around off, Faheem gets forward to defend but it takes the outer half of his bat and rolls to point.
  • 30.6Driven through the covers by the batsman. They pick up a single. 103/6
  • 30.5Full and on middle, kept out on the leg side.
  • 30.4Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 30.3A low full toss on off, it's dug out to mid off.
  • Faheem Ashraf is the new batsman.
  • 30.2OUT! Edged and gone! Zero footwork shown by Shadab as he goes fishing at this delivery. It's angled away from him on a length and is leaving him after pitching. Needless poking by the batsman and he ends up edging it straight into the hands of Cook at first slip. This is one aspect of being in good form. You want to play every ball. This should have been left alone with ease but Shadab wanted to score off it. No heroics from him with the bat this time. Pakistan staring down at an innings defeat here.
  • 30.1On and around off, it's on a length, Khan sticks back and defends it to the off side.
  • 29.6Hits the yorker mark on this occasion, Salahuddin digs it out to end the over. A strange one, had three full tosses and a yorker. Very little attempt to spin the ball. 102/5
  • 29.5And one more full toss, struggling with the landing, Bess. Salahuddin however fails to make any use of it again. Pushes it down towards mid on.
  • 29.4Full toss again, on middle, hit across the line but straight to mid-wicket.
  • 29.3A full toss on off, Shadab forces it down towards mid off where Root makes a tumbling stop. Cannot stop the single though.
  • 29.2Flighted and full outside off, it has been driven through covers for a couple of runs.
  • 29.1Tossed up delivery on off, driven off the front foot.
  • Dominic Bess is back on. Change of ends for him. Hmm... he took a wicket from the other end. Wonder what prompted this...
  • 28.6A cracking shot and a cracking stop! James Anderson it is. Curran delivers a short ball just outside off, Shadab, the batsman in form, rocks back and pulls it firmly across the line. Anderson at mid-wicket makes a superb stop, although it's partial one. A single to end the over. 99/5
  • 28.5A rising delivery, around the rib cage, Salahuddin goes on his toes and works it in front of square leg for a run.
  • 28.4Continues to probe in the corridor of uncertainty, Usman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 28.3This one is angled across the batsman, it's wide outside off and Salahuddin has an easy leave to make.
  • 28.2Salahuddin has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 28.1A bit short and in line of the stumps, Salahuddin defends it on the leg side.
  • Sam Curran is back into the attack.
  • 27.6In the channel outside off, Khan makes a leave to end the over. 97/5
  • Shadab Khan is the new batsman.
  • 27.5OUT! That's trapped in front! Sarfraz straightaway walks to the pavilion and doesn't think about taking the review. He knows how dead he was in front of the sticks. Woakes gets a length ball to move back sharply into the batsman from around off. Ahmed has his weight on the back leg as he half-heartedly tries to play it across the line. Misses and is pinged on the pads. They appeal and the finger goes up immediately. Would have crashed middle and leg. Pakistan struggling big time, trailing by 92 runs.
  • 27.4Goes on the back foot to a shortish length ball and plays it down to point again.
  • 27.3Played to the point region by the batsman. No run.
  • 27.2Full and angling in around off, it's pushed off the front foot to mid off.
  • 27.1Short and wide outside off, Salahuddin uses the width and runs it behind point. It's stopped by the third man fielder in the deep and they take three runs.
  • Nasser Hussain (on air) making a point on Dominic Bess. He found out that he holds the ball in a different way than the regular off spinners. When he bowls, the seam of the ball is pointing more towards square leg while usually the likes of Swann and Lyon bowl with the seam directing towards first slip. It's not a criticism as Nass just wanted to point out that he is different and wants to give him time.
  • 26.6The batsman works it down the leg side. One run added to the total. 94/4
  • 26.5Tries playing across the line but it takes the leading half of the blade and rolls back to the bowler.
  • 26.4Very full and on off, it's kept out.
  • 26.3Lands this one on a fuller length outside off, turning back in, Salahuddin lunges and blocks.
  • 26.2Tossed up on off, it's played with the spin to mid-wicket.
  • 26.1Flighted and full, Sarfraz skips down and pushes it to long on for a run.
  • 25.6Outside off, left alone. 92/4
  • 25.5Full and outside off, driven down to mid off.
  • 25.4Angling down the leg side, Ahmed plays it down off his pads, towards square leg and jogs across to the other end.
  • 25.3Oh dear, Sarfraz. No luck whatsoever. He unfurls a beautiful straight drive this time which goes on to hit the stumps at the other end. It then reflects towards 'that' cover fielder. Two excellent shots but he remains on 6!
  • 25.2This time the bowler brings his length back and serves it around off, Ahmed stays back and leans a bit to tap it towards point.
  • 25.1A length ball outside off, Ahmed drives it on the up but finds the cover fielder. That's frustrating for the batsman. A good shot has fetched him nothing.
  • 24.6Floated and on middle, defended on the leg side. 91/4
  • 24.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 24.4Plays this one with soft hands, goes with the turn and defends it on the leg side.
  • 24.3Tossed up ball on middle, played down to short leg.
  • 24.2An off spinning delivery has been worked with the spin on the leg side. It's in the gap at mid-wicket and they pinch a single.
  • 24.1FOUR! Use of the feet, that's something all the Asian batsman like to do. Sarfraz is to the pitch of the delivery in a flash as he drills it through the line. Woakes at mid off tries to stop it with a dive but fails in his attempt.
  • 23.6Aahhh...extra bounce once again and Salahuddin is taken aback once more. Stands back, takes his bottom hand off the handle as it goes off his gloves to square leg. The pitch playing all kinds of tricks and it's only going to get worse. 86/4
  • 23.5Uses his feet this time to smother the movement and gets it away from the outer half of his bat. It goes safely down to third man and they take a single.
  • 23.4Pitches it full and around off, Sarfraz takes a half stride forward and defends it watchfully right under his eyes.
  • 23.3Serves it just beyond the length area outside off, Usman drives it wide of mid off and crosses for a run.
  • 23.2Ufff...that shoots up from a length around off and takes the debutant by surprise. Salahuddin immediately goes on the back foot, plays it with a loose bottom hand and defends it down safely. Good technique.
  • 23.1An outswinger, landing outside off and shaping away, Usman watches the line closely and feels no need to play at it.
  • Sarfraz Ahmed, the skipper, walks out to bat. He has a job in his hands. Meanwhile, England are not happy with the shape of the ball and give it to the umpires to check it. They pass it through the 8-shaped gauge and then call for a change.
  • 22.6OUT! YES! Dominic Bess gets his first Test wicket! Good work from Root, goes to his spinner and the young lad does not disappoint. Bowls a regular off spin on middle and off, gets good revs on it and raps Imam on his front pad as he misses his defense. His bat got stuck in his front pad before coming forward at an angle. A loud and confident appeal from the fielding side follows and the umpire takes no time in raising his finger. Imam has a word with his partner and decides to take the review. Replays roll and show us that the ball would have gone to clip the top of the middle stump. Pakistan don't lose the review but Imam-ul-Haq has to take the long walk back. Finally Bess has some say with the ball, which was the only thing left. The stubborn 42-run stand comes to an end. 84/4
  • Is it the first Test wicket for Bess? He has got the wicket of Imam. But the batsman has decided to review the LBW decision. Looks out though.
  • 22.5Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 22.4Loopy ball on off, Imam gets forward and bunts it.
  • 22.3The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 22.2Tossed up around off, Imam leans forward and blocks it.
  • 22.1FOUR! The batsman has taken him straightaway and does not allow the ball to spin. Bess gives this air on on middle, Usman dances down and hits it down the ground for a boundary.
  • Yo! We were right! It's time to witness some off spinners from Dominic Bess. A slip and short leg in place. Let's see whether he gets some spin going straightaway.
  • 21.6Drags this length back and Salahuddin punches this off his back foot. 80/3
  • 21.5The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 21.4Pitched up again, Salahuddin hits this for the mid on fielder to collect.
  • Keaton Jennings is off the field and is seen wearing the shin guard! Preparing to field at bat-pad? Maybe, Joe Root is thinking to bring in Dominic Bess from the other end with both the current batsmen looking quite composed against pacers post Lunch.
  • 21.3It's been driven superbly to covers to the man.
  • 21.2The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 21.1Did we say stiff Anderson in the previous over? This one was for the haters. Woakes pitches it up on middle and leg, Imam shuffles across and flicks it through mid-wicket. Anderson from the infield hares behind it and does extremely well to pull it back in time. Saves a certain boundary but not the three.
  • 20.6The batsman has attempted to put bat on ball but fails. 77/3
  • 20.5Another good looking shot from Salahudin! Drives this through covers and jogs back to complete the second run.
  • 20.4Short ball from Anderson, Usman ducks under it to let it go through.
  • 20.3Back of a length ball on off, Imam stays back and punches it through the covers. Buttler chases it and pulls it just before the rope. They get three runs.
  • 20.2Length outside off, Imam plays this to the point region.
  • 20.1Imam has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 19.6The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. One run added to the total. 72/3
  • 19.5FOUR! Overpitched ball around off, Imam drives it solidly along the turf towards mid off. A stiff looking Jimmy Anderson puts in a dive there but the ball goes through him.
  • 19.4Gets this past gully for a run! Similar ball and similar shot, only this time will get a run for it.
  • 19.3Fuller this time, around off, Salahuddin tries to block this but gets a soft edge to gully.
  • 19.2Usman lets the ball go outside his off stump.
  • 19.1Back of a length ball on leg, Salahuddin tucks it into the ground.
  • 18.6Hurled on a length around off, pushed towards covers from the crease. A maiden from Anderson. 66/3
  • 18.5Straighter in line this time, Imam gets his bat down at an angle and pushes it towards mid on.
  • 18.4On a length just outside off, it moves away after pitching. Imam takes a stride forward and lets it be.
  • 18.3Well outside off, left alone.
  • 18.2This time Imam stays back and defends it to the off side.
  • 18.1Anderson continues round the wicket and bowls it full around off. Imam presents a straight bat and defends it back.
  • 17.6The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through. 66/3
  • 17.5Unlike Anderson and Broad, Woakes is happy to bowl a bit back and not the fuller length. Lands this around off, Usman taps it in front of him.
  • 17.4The short of length delivery has been cut away through square on the off side. Dot ball.
  • 17.3On middle and leg, this is pushed further past backward square leg for easy two runs.
  • 17.2Similar back of a length ball around off, Imam gets up to his toes to play that one and tucks it behind square. They cross.
  • 17.1Starts by bowling one on a good length on that fourth stump channel, Imam hops and bunts it down from within the crease.
  • Bowling change! Chris Woakes is into the attack.
  • 16.6In line of the stumps, US hits it to mid on. 63/3
  • 16.5The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 16.4Around off, Usman gets forward and blocks it.
  • 16.3Length on middle, Usman is good in his defense.
  • 16.2Usman Salahuddin has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 16.1Runs in from over the wicket and hurls one down leg, Salahuddin misses this flick and the ball goes through to the keeper off his thigh pad. Bairstow does not collect it cleanly but no runs conceded.
  • 15.6Defended off the front foot by Imam presenting the full face of the bat. 63/3
  • 15.5Full again on leg, Usman flicks it away through square leg. The ball does not meet the fence but Pakistan get three easy runs to their total.
  • 15.4Broad serves this full on middle and leg, no movement off the ball and Usman hits it to mid on.
  • 15.3The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 15.2Pitches this up again, this time on that off pole, Usman does not time it well enough and gives it to covers.
  • 15.1Fuller ball on the fifth stump channel, Salahuddin watches the ball go through.
  • The landing area from where the previous over was bowled is getting some serious attention. Anderson was seen being anything other than happy with that. As a result he even switched sides. Wary of landing his left leg there, he hobbled on one leg after delivering 14.2. Now the leveling has been done and play resumes.
  • 14.6In line of the stumps, Imam bunts this down with a straight bat by staying within his crease. 60/3
  • 14.5Imam has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 14.4Lands this on middle and off, Imam blocks it well.
  • 14.3Comes in from round the wicket now, Imam shoulders arms to let that one through.
  • 14.2Usman works it down the leg side towards square leg for a single. Anderson goes down on his knees as his landing was not up to his liking.
  • 14.1FOUR! Short and wide from Anderson. Salahuddin plays it with a flat bat, alomst like a chop past the gully fielder. The ball runs away to the deep backward point fence. A bit of Mohammad Hafeez in that shot says my partner.
  • 13.6That ball has taken the inside edge of the batsman and thudded into his pads. 55/3
  • 13.5Played with an open face bat towards covers. They pick up a single.
  • 13.4Broad pitches it up, Salahuddin covers his timber and bunts it down.

  • 13.1Usman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 12.6Down the leg side from Jimmy to end the over, Imam tries flicking it but to no avail. 54/3
  • 12.5Imam ul Haq defends it from within the crease.
  • 12.4The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump.
  • 12.3Nicely done from Imam. Fuller in length from James on middle and leg, Ul-Haq gets ahead and flicks it through mid-wicket. The fielder in the deep mops it up and restricts the batsmen to two.
  • 12.2Better line from Anderson. Darts this around off, Imam attempts to put bat on ball but fails.
  • 12.1Down leg, Imam goes after it but cannot make any contact.
  • James Anderson bowl from the other end.
  • 11.6FOUR! Streaky! Full from Broad around off, Salahuddin pokes at it and gets a fat edge past the third slip. No third man and the ball rolls to the fence. 52/3
  • 11.5Fuller in line of the stumps, Salahuddin goes for the drive but gets it off the inner half back to the bowler.
  • 11.4Bowls this in line of the stumps and Salahuddin gets behind the ball and blocks it well.
  • 11.3This one is a bit too far to make Usman play at it.
  • 11.2Once again catches Salahuddin off guard. Perfect length, forcing Usman for a drive. He feels for it and gets beaten.
  • 11.1Beauty to start with! Gets lovely movement off the surface. Comes in from over the wicket and lands this around off, it moves away and Usam plays and misses.
  • We are back from our break! We hope Pakistan have had some thoughts along with their Lunch. They need to show some confidence and play some gritty cricket. England will hope that their speedsters will do the damage ASAP. Imam ul Haq and Usman Salahuddin stride out to bat. Stuart Broad will bowl the first over of this session. Three slips in place.
  • Pakistan have a big job on their hands. They have to first make 141 more runs and then set England a target. With already 30 percent of their side back, things look uphill. It will be interesting to see their approach post the break. The hosts will look to get as many wickets today so that they won't have too much to do the next day. Take your break and be with us at 1340 local time (1240 GMT).
  • James Anderson and Stuart Broad, like they did in the first innings, troubled the batters enough and got three wickets to give England more than the upper hand. They were criticized before this game for not striking frequently and here they are replying in kind. Earlier on, Buttler ran out of partners and missed scoring his first Test ton. The tail couldn't last for more than an hour as the visitors got the job done soon enough, but not before conceding a lead of 189.
  • A wonderful session for England. They got quick runs with the bat and now have sent three of the Pakistan batsmen back in the hut. The Asian side came out to bat with great intent. Azhar Ali played some good shots earlier on and everyone thought it was the perfect mindset for Pakistan to wipe out the trail. He, along with Imam Ul Haq, played and missed on numerous occasions in the process.
  • 10.6Good length ball outside off, Imam stays back and punches it to covers. That will be LUNCH on Day 3! 48/3
  • 10.5Driven through the covers by the batsman.
  • 10.4There is swing on offer. Bowls one on a good length, it moves away from Imam, who does not bother playing at it.
  • 10.3Short ball on middle, Imam does well to evade it.
  • 10.2Bowls this full outside off, Imam leaves it alone.
  • 10.1FOUR! Starts by bowling one very full. Had the same trouble in the first innings. Angles this down leg and it is an easy flick for Imam. He hits to the deep square leg region to get four to his name.
  • Sam Curran to bowl, what should be the last over before Lunch.
  • 9.6Salahuddin fails to put bat on ball. A wicket and a couple of runs off this one from Broad. 44/3
  • 9.5The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 9.4Well outside off, left alone.
  • 9.3Full on middle and leg, flicked away through mid-wicket to get off the mark with a brace.
  • Usman Salahuddin is the next batter in.
  • 9.2OUT! Three of the Pakistan batters are out to have an early Lunch at Leeds! England are on a roll here, courtesy an excellent use of the Decision Review System. Broad steams in from over the wicket and spears it down leg. Shafiq would have flicked these ones nine times out of ten to the boundary. This turns out to be the tenth occasion. The ball seems to have gone off something to Bairstow behind. He takes it forward and puts in an appeal. Seeing no response from the umpire, Root intervenes. Has a word with Bairstow and Broad to know if there were two noises. He gets a confident nod and goes further with the review. The initial impression could have been the absence of any wood as the ball didn't zip through. Now time for the reviews, where the Snicko comes into play. It detects the tiniest of edges and returns a spike, one that signals Asad's fate. So, the batter had gloved it and then the ball went off his thigh pad to the keeper. Hence, didn't carry to the height it should have. Mickey Arthur has his head down in disgust, while England have their hands high in joy. Pakistan going down quite quickly here.
  • Is that it for Shafiq? Dear o dear! Shafiq misses the flick and it goes off something to the keeper. Bairstow takes that and puts in a not-so-confident appeal. Root asks him and the bowler if there were two noises. On getting the affirmation, he takes it upstairs.
  • 9.1Fuller on middle, flicked away to mid-wicket.
  • 8.6Length outside off, easy leave for Imam. 42/2
  • 8.5Ul Haq shoulders arms to let that one through.
  • 8.4Full ball in line of the stumps, Imam plays it back to the bowler.
  • 8.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. They pick up a single.
  • 8.2FOUR! Edged and through the slip cordon for a boundary. Shafiq looks to play this one with soft hands. But the ball moves away just a bit and hence goes off the edge. It falls short of second slip and runs away to the third man fence.
  • 8.1Outside off, left alone.
  • 7.6And again! No shot offered and the ball goes on to hit the front pad of Imam. Length ball around off, Imam leaves it alone and gets hit on his pads. This time a low appeal as it looked like it would miss the stumps. 37/2
  • 7.6FOUR! Broad oversteps and serves it down leg, Imam flicks it upishly towards the fine leg region for a boundary. Five runs for Pakistan, due to the no ball.
  • 7.5The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.
  • 7.4Loud shout again but the umpire is not interested. Length ball outside off, Imam points his bat skywards thinking the ball will move away, but it doesn't. It comes back in and hits Ul Haq on his pad. The English players appeal but the umpire says Not Out. No review taken from the fielding side. Hawk Eye says that it would have missed the stumps easily.
  • 7.3The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 7.2Pitched up ball from Broad, Imam drives this through covers and will get two runs for it.
  • 7.1The ball is too wide on the off side for the batsman to make any contact.
  • Asad Shafiq is the new man in.
  • 6.6OUT! Bess takes a beauty to send Sohail for an early shower! He has done it with the bat, now does it in the field. Only thing left for him is to get wickets. Anderson runs in from round the wicket and bowls it full outside off, Sohail is early in his drive and ends up chipping one towards mid off. Dominic at short extra cover takes a couple of steps to his left and dives to grab it with his weaker arm. A one handed catch that. The ball sticks and Haris stands there in disbelief. Anderson gets his second and Pakistan still trail by 159 runs. 30/2
  • 6.5The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump.
  • 6.4FOUR! Easy runs for Pakistan. Anderson misses his line, angles it down leg and Sohail helps it on its way towards fine leg for a boundary.
  • 6.3No need to play at these. It is Anderson, you need to see off the new ball. Sohail goes fishing outside his off stump and gets beaten.
  • 6.2Outside off, HS chooses to leave it alone.
  • 6.1Fuller from Anderson, Haris hits it for the mid off fielder to collect.
  • There seems to be some problem at the bowling crease. Two ground staff run out, put some mud on it and do the leveling job real quick. Anderson has a look and is happy with it.
  • 5.6Strays this down leg, Imam looks to work it to the leg side but misses the ball. 26/1
  • 5.5Pitched up from Broad on off, Sohail gets behind the ball and drives it through mid off. The ball won't go all the way as the 35 year old, Anderson hares after it. Parries it to the 20-year old Curran who gives it back to the bowler. The batsmen take three.
  • 5.4Similar line from Broad, Sohail covers his stumps and leaves it alone.
  • 5.3Full this time outside off, good leave from Haris.
  • 5.2Beauty! Really good from Broad. Making the ball talk. Hurls this on the fourth stump channel, Sohail feels for it but gets beaten.
  • 5.1Length ball on middle and leg, Sohail stays back and hits it to short mid-wicket
  • 4.6On the pads again, worked away through square leg for a couple. End of a successful over from Jimmy. 23/1
  • 4.5Fuller on off, defended solidly.
  • Ian Botham analyses the slip cordon. He compares England's cordon to that of New Zealand. He observed that the Kiwis cover more space with the same amount of fielders than England do. The reason is that the slip fielders stand very close to each other while the Kiwis stand a bit further apart. Fair point.
  • 4.4On a length around middle and leg, Sohail clips it off the inner half through square leg for one.
  • Haris Sohail is the next man in.
  • 4.3OUT! Knocked him over! What a delivery from the premier swing bowler from England. Anderson bowls it full on off and middle and gets it to move in a touch. Ali looks to play the drive sans any feet movement. Misses the ball completely to find his woodwork shattered. Jimmy is ecstatic and leaps to make it known. He was criticized in the first innings for not being full enough and not attacking the stumps. Here he has done both and that has borne fruit. Yet again Pakistan's opening pair fails to impress.
  • 4.2Huge appeal for a caught behind, turned down! Angled in from outside off, Azhar looks to defend with his bat close to his front pad. The ball goes off his pads and Bairstow takes it low to his right. Then England appeal vociferously for a caught behind but the umpire stays unmoved. Root ponders about DRS but decides not to take it, after having a long chat. Good call in the end as the Snicko didn't detect any spike when the ball passed the blade. It went only off the pad.
  • 4.1Outside off, left alone.
  • 3.6Full outside off, Imam leaves it alone. 20/0
  • 3.5Down the leg side this time, Imam goes for the flick but cannot make any contact.
  • 3.4FOUR! Confidence booster for Imam. Overpitched ball from Broad outside off, Imam waits for it and drives it crisply through mid off for a boundary.
  • 3.3Imam ul Haq lets the ball go outside his off stump.
  • 3.2The ball is too wide on the off side for Imam to make any contact.
  • 3.1The ball is way outside the off stump, easy leave for the batsman.
  • 2.6Huge appeal from England but nothing from the umpire. Anderson comes in from over the wicket and serves one on a good length outside off. The ball jags back and Ali shoulders his arms to it only to see the ball going to hit his pad. A long appeal but the umpire stays put. Root has a chat but opts against the DRS. 16/0
  • 2.5Full again on leg, Ali flicks it in the gap towards deep square leg for a brace. Some quick runs for the visitors.
  • 2.4The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot.
  • 2.3Length ball outside off, Ali goes for it but does not make contact.
  • 2.2Ali chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump.
  • 2.1FOUR! Ali is looking good. Pitched up ball on off, Ali stands tall and punches it down the ground. Anderson tries to stop it on his followthrough but cannot get his hand to it. The mid off fielder chases it but comes second best.
  • 1.6The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through. 10/0
  • 1.5Fuller ball outside off, no need to play at that but Imam still goes for the booming drive. Misses the ball, that wasn't too far from the outside edge.
  • 1.4Driven towards the mid on region.
  • 1.3You beauty! Similar ball from Broad and he is due to get one edged now. Serves another one on a good length around off, Imam looks to block it but misses it completely.
  • 1.2Jaffa! Peach of a delivery from Imam. Hurls it on middle and off, Imam has to play at it and the ball almost takes his outside edge.
  • 1.1Comes in from over the wicket and bowls it outside off, Imam shoulders his arms.
  • Stuart Broad, as he does, will share the new ball along with his vintage partner, James Anderson.
  • 0.6The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 10/0
  • 0.5Guides this one to the gully fielder.
  • 0.4Four Leg Byes. Anderson angles this into Ali. Azhar looks to flick it away but it hits his thigh pad and runs away to the fine leg fence.
  • 0.3Slants this on leg, Imam fails to get bat on this attempted flick. It goes off his pads and a leg bye is taken.
  • 0.2Taps this to cover-point and sets off for the run. The fielder there has a shy at the stumps at the striker's end but misses. Imam was in though. Good intent shown from the Pakistan batsmen.
  • 0.1FOUR! WOW! Perfect from Azhar Ali. No need for sighters, no need to check whether the ball is swinging. Nothing. Anderson pitches it up around off, Ali uses his feet, gets forward and creams it through covers for a boundary. This will give him a lot of confidence.
