Cook completed his half-century. Another good knock on difficult pitch by the southpaw. But the skipper is running short of partners. Zulfiqar Babar and Rahat Ali are bowling in tandem for Pakistan. England need another 164 runs and they have 3 wickets remaining.
Over 51 | Score 111/7 | (Cook 49*, Broad 2*)
The bowling change worked for Pakistan as speedster Rahat Ali bowled a peach of a delivery to get the wicket of Rashid. Good length ball, went through the gates of the right-hander. Now Pakistan is mere three wickets away to win the match and clinch the series 2-0. Stuart Broad is the new man in, who can also bat a bit.
AU Rashid b Rahat Ali 22 (72b)
Over 49 | Score 107/6 | (Cook 47*, Rashid 22*)
Thus far Rashid has played with the straight bat. He is given Cook the kind of company the skipper needed. Sensible batting display by the two in the middle. In fact, the duo have forced Misbah to call back one of his seamers into the attack. However, Malik is bowling his off spin from the other end. In the mean time England touched the 100-run mark as well. But the visiting team still need another 177 runs to win the match and they have mere 4 wickets left.
Over 41 | Score 91/6 | (Cook 47*, Rashid 14*)
Spinners set up the match for Pakistan on the fifth day as they went through England's middle-order in a bid to win the series 2-0. Skipper and opener Cook is still in the middle, but the way Tweakers are bowling, it seems as if they will finish the match any time soon. Cook is mere seven runs short of this fifty.
Over 36 | Score 74/6 | (Cook 34*, Rashid 6*)
Cook and Rashid have managed to prevent any more damage in the last four overs. Both of them however continue to look vulnerable against the two spinners. Cook once charged down the wicket to Babar and smashed him for a boundary past long-on. Still plenty of overs to go. These two should look to block as many deliveries as possible since it's only the first session.
Over 32 | Score 66/6 | (Cook 27*, Rashid 5*)
Babar picked his second wicket of the match in form of Samit Patel who looked in no position to play that shot where he was trapped in front of the wicket. England are reeling, wobbling as Babar and Shah are looking to pick a wicket off every ball. The onus is now on Cook to unsettle these two spinners with some positive strokes.
SR Patel lbw b Zulfiqar Babar 0 (1b)
Over 28 | Score 58/5 | (Cook 19*, Taylor 0*)
Pakistan are in control of the game now having picked two more wickets. Babar picked his first wicket of the innings when he spun one away from Taylor who got an edge which carried to first slip. In the next over, Yasir picked his second wicket of the innings and he trapped Bairstow in front of the wicket and even though he reviewed the decision, that was out and England are wobbling here. Samit Patel is the new man in. Babar and Shah are on fire!
JM Bairstow lbw b Yasir Shah 0 (4b)
JWA Taylor c Younis Khan b Zulfiqar Babar 2 (9b)
Over 24 | Score 48/3 | (Cook 19*, Taylor 0*)
Pakistan got a major breakthrough when Yasir Shah dismissed Joe Root who was trapped in front of the wicket. James Taylor is the new man in and he needs to support his skipper now if England entertain any chances of putting up a fight here.
JE Root lbw b Yasir Shah 6 (29b)
At stumps on Day 4, England's scoreboard read 48/2. Alastair Cook and Joe Root were two unbeaten batsmen at the crease.
