Honestly if I were Pakistan, I would play spin at both ends. I'm really surprised Shadab hasnt come in to bowl yet. Looked impressive in the first innings.

Look at those rough patches ffs

Not taking anything away from bowler but the rough patch had some contribution in that wicket.

Nothing more predictable than the England test team.

Pope and Buttler need to play a blinder each, but I doubt Buttler's technique survives on this pitch against Yasir Shah.

Agreed. I think they are going for reverse swing. Bit early though for that.

The decision to play an extra bowler definitely didn't work out. Should have dropped Archer.

Stokes has a combined average of 25 against sub-continental teams. 43 innings.

Positive attitude is good thing but Butler needs to stop throwing bat at every ball. Single- doubles will be enough imo.

Can't believe it's been a decade sine England's best ever test team.

Cook, Strauss, Trott, Pieterson, Bell, Collingwood, Prior, Bresnan/Tremlett, Broad, Swann, Anderson

In hindsight not the most exciting line-up of players ever but they knew how to grind and pile on runs.

Good counter attacking from England

Seems the only way to get out of this mess is to play this like a one day game

Freddie was done by 2010. Gave one last blockbuster performance in the 2009 Ashes then packed it in when his body couldn't hold out anymore.

Excellent comeback from England

Game is 50-50 now

One wicket could change things though

Lead down to double-figures now...

England so far doing a good job of taking 1s/2s post-tea, instead of coming out swinging.
