Over 45 | Score 111/4 | (Younis 19*, Asad 29*)
It's Tea time at Lord's. Younus Khan continues his struggling fight in the middle, accompanied by Asad Shafiq, who looks to have settled down. The duo complete 50-run partnership as Pakistan extend lead to 178. A wicket in the final session at least needed by the Englishmen.
Misbah-ul-Haq c Hales b Ali 0 (2b)
Over 30 | Score 60/3 | (Younis 6*, Misbah 0*)
Azhar Ali the latest wicket to fall as Pakistan start to lose grip on the match. The man of first innings, Misbah-ul-Haq walks in hoping to rescue his side yet again. Time for England to shift up a gear and put pressure on the new man at crease.

Over 20 | Score 49/2 | (Younis 2*, Azhar 20*)
Post-lunch blow for Pakistan - Shan Masood fails to build his innings, Chris Woakes' delivery takes outside edge straight into the hands of Alastair Cook. Younis Khan joins Azhar Ali on pitch, this partnership will be vital to the expectations from the match.
Shan Masood c Cook b Woakes 24 (50b)
Over 17 | Score 40/1 | (Masood 20*, Azhar 17*)
Pre-Lunch session belongs to Pakistan, after another terrific performance with the bowl. The batsmen too look fairly untroubled, barring Mohammad Hafeez's wicket. England will look to find a way past Masood and Azhar to revive their chances of getting something out of the match.
Over 10 | Score 26/1 | (Masood 14*, Azhar 11*)
After losing MOhammad Hafeez in the 3rd over, Pakistan opt for safety-first approach with both Shan Masood and Azhar Ali looking dealing in 's and 2's to slowly build their innings. England on the other hand will look to get one or two more wickets in the next 10 overs if they are to come back in the match.
Mohammad Hafeez c Root b Broad 0 (11b)
Over 79.1 | Score 272 | (Ball 4*)
Wrap-up for the hosts! Chris Woakes depart after a silly run-out which leave England 67 runs behind Pakistan at the end of first innings. Yasir claims the match ball after continuing his magical spell, picking up six wickets in total as the visitors continue to dominate with the ball.

Yasir Shah became the first leg-spinner in 20 years to take a five-wicket haul in a Test innings at Lord`s to leave Pakistan well-placed at stumps on Friday's second day of their series opener with England.
At the close, England were 253 for seven in reply to Pakistan`s first innings 339 -- a deficit of 86 runs, with Chris Woakes 31 not out.
Shah, in his first Test since serving a three-month drugs ban -- and his first outside of Asia and the United Arab Emirates -- ran through England`s middle-order on the way to five for 64 in 25 overs.
It was the first time any leg-spinner had taken five or more wickets in a Test innings at Lord`s since his compatriot Mushtaq Ahmed`s five for 57 in 1996.
Earlier, England captain Alastair Cook made 81 and in the process surpassed India great Sunil Gavaskar as the highest run-scoring opening batsman in Test history.
