Pakistan

268/10(96.3 Overs)

Finally, England's innings have come to an end. They have recorded their best score so far in Test Cricket against Pakistan. Some positives to take out from this outing for the hosts is that they were amazing with the ball in this session. England has posted a mammoth total of 657 here and Pakistan certainly has a task to do. England continued their bazball approach but lost Ben Stokes pretty early in the day. Livingstone followed him soon, but Brook was the man to watch. Have to mention that

Pakistan bowlers were good from the start and bagged some early wickets. Naseem Shah was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan with figures of 3 for 140. Not good numbers but they will be hoping on their batters now to put up a good opening stand for them.

He flights this one full and outside the off stump, James Anderson looks to drag the ball towards the leg side and goes for the sweep shot.

DRINKS! We will have another short refreshment break due to an extended first session. England have lost 4 wickets but scored at such a brisk rate that they are well ahead in this game. Pakistan will be hoping to take the last two wickets before Lunch so that they can work out their plans and come out in the second session.

The ball pegs the middle stump back and Stokes walks out for 41 in just 18 balls. Naseem Shah looks pumped as he celebrates and gives the batt

We are all set for the action to begin! The Pakistan players are out in the middle and have taken their positions on the field. Harry Brook and Ben Stokes stride out to the middle and they will be looking to score runs at a quick pace and build on this mammoth total. Naseem Shah will begin procceedings this morning. Let's play...

Multiple records tumbled along the way in this game and we shall dig into some of them to understand the magnitude of England's effort. First and foremost, we shall focus on the massive total that the team achieved, which is the highest that has been scored on Day 1 of the Test match as no team has been able to cross the 500-run mark. The fact that the visitors achieved it with 15 overs unused in the day, makes the achievement even more special. With Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, and Ha

On Day 1, the visitors won the toss and despite Ben Stokes’ preference to chase targets in the fourth innings, he made the right decision to bat first on what appeared to be a dead track. Right from the start, the England openers looked to be positive and go after the bowlers. The Zak Crawley-Ben Duckett partnership accumulated 233 at better than a run every ball with both of them reaching centuries and Pakistan were able to get the breakthrough only in the second session. The hosts dis

Hello and welcome back, ladies and gentlemen to our coverage of Day 2 of the first Test in this historic series between Pakistan and England. It will be the visitors who would have slept well after their performance on Day 1 and with the bout of illness they had experienced before the game started, it is a good thing they are rested. Pakistan were completely outplayed but they would have to look deep at the flatness of the pitch. With them needing to win 4 of the 5 remaining games to make it

... DAY 2, SESSION 1 ...

That is all we have from this opening day of the first Test match which has been an absolute run-fest. Pakistan have loads to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the hosts? Or will England consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 2nd of December at 10.30 am IST (5 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

Right then, the first session will be really crucial for Pakistan if they are to have a chance in this game as they need early wickets. The new ball will be available in 5 more overs and if they are unable to get any reverse swing early they may opt to take it. England have some dangerous batters in their ranks and if they are not contained they could reach a massive total in really quick time. Their newfound positive approach has put them in a strong position and things have to go really wrong

The day has well and truly belonged to England and it was courtesy of an outstanding start from the openers who accumulated runs at will. The first session yielded over 170 runs and Pakistan looked like they were incapable of claiming a wicket. The second session was more or less the same for close to an hour but when the partnership was broken and both the openers were dismissed in quick succession, Pakistan may have felt that they had an opening. They got the big wicket of Joe Root as well b

England came out for the last session with Harry Brook and Ollie Pope looking to build on their partnership and it looked like they were in no mood to take it slow as they put on a 176-run stand in just 149 balls. Ollie Pope reached his ton and was dismissed shortly afterward by Mohammad Ali who has had a debut to forget but will definitely remember his first wicket. Harry Brook continued the onslaught even smashing four boundaries in one over bowled by and unfortunate Saud Shakeel. He raced

Session Summary - 21 overs, 174 runs, and 1 wicket. Another session which was dominated by the English batters and Pakistan do not seem to be getting a break. Two more centurions in their ranks which makes it the first time four batters have reached hundreds on Day 1 of a Test match and Joe Root will be feeling left out. England scored more than 8 runs per over in the final session and have crossed the 500-run mark, the first time this has been achieved on Day 1 of a Test match. A day full of

Harry Brook and Ollie Pope look to have settled at the wicket and yet another dangerous partnership is brewing for England. Pakistan put on a much better performance in this session. They are finally finding their lengths and troubling the England batters but they need to keep up the intensity in the last session of Day 1. There is still loads of time in the Test match and the game could go either way. Will Pakistan keep their discipline and get more wickets before the end of Day's play? Or

Despite things looking even in this session, it is England who have the upper hand in the game. Zak Crawley scored the fastest-ever century (86 balls) made by an English opener in Test cricket and his partner Ben Duckett reached his maiden century in a game that he is looking to make a comeback. Pakistan managed to break the 233-run opening partnership and sent both England openers back to the shed in consecutive overs. Joe Root and Ollie Pope put on a 51-run partnership to steady the sh

Session Summary - 27 overs, 158 runs, and 3 wickets. This can be easily considered as a shared session as England have scored runs far too freely and Pakistan have not been able to gain control of the game. It has been an excellent comeback from the Pakistan bowlers in the second session as they have managed to take three wickets on what looks like a difficult pitch for the bowlers. It must be said that the hosts have kept their intensity up and have not lost hope despite the onslaught

Pakistan will be hoping that the second session will reverse their fortunes and they are able to break this partnership at the earliest. England have a really long batting lineup and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to get back in this game. England will not want to change their plans as whatever they are doing is working wonders for them. Will they increase this partnership and will more records be broken on the way? Or will the hosts manage to find a breakthrough? D

Naseem Shah to Harry Brook, Bowls it fuller and on off, Harry Brook taps it to backward point for one.

The openers have put on a massive 174-run partnership in just 164 balls to make this England’s session without any doubt. Zak Crawley thumped 14 runs in the first over, the most runs that have been scored by England in the opening over of a Test match in over a century. He continued his onslaught and got to his half-century in quick time before going into the break with 91 runs in his kitty. Ben Duckett was slightly more watchful but gathered momentum to reach his half-century and ended the

Session Summary - 27 overs, 174 runs, and 0 wickets. We have had an entertaining first session of Test cricket as England have gotten off to a dream start in this first Test match and are well on course to post a mammoth total. Pakistan have lacked the rhythm and do not look like taking wickets as they have lacked penetration. The pitch has provided no assistance and Ben Stokes will be absolutely thrilled about winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Some positives to take out from this outing for the hosts is that they were amazing with the ball in this session. England has posted a mammoth total of 657 here and Pakistan certainly has a task to do. England continued their bazball approach but lost Ben Stokes pretty early in the day. Livingstone followed him soon, but Brook was the man to watch. Have to mention that

Pakistan will be hoping to take the last two wickets before Lunch so that they can work out their plans and come out in the second session.

Multiple records tumbled along the way in this game and we shall dig into some of them to understand the magnitude of England's effort. First and foremost, we shall focus on the massive total that the team achieved, which is the highest that has been scored on Day 1 of the Test match as no team has been able to cross the 500-run mark. The fact that the visitors achieved it with 15 overs unused in the day, makes the achievement even more special. With Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, and Ha

On Day 1, the visitors won the toss and despite Ben Stokes’ preference to chase targets in the fourth innings, he made the right decision to bat first on what appeared to be a dead track. Right from the start, the England openers looked to be positive and go after the bowlers. The Zak Crawley-Ben Duckett partnership accumulated 233 at better than a run every ball with both of them reaching centuries and Pakistan were able to get the breakthrough only in the second session. The hosts dis

Hello and welcome back, ladies and gentlemen to our coverage of Day 2 of the first Test in this historic series between Pakistan and England. It will be the visitors who would have slept well after their performance on Day 1 and with the bout of illness they had experienced before the game started, it is a good thing they are rested. Pakistan were completely outplayed but they would have to look deep at the flatness of the pitch. With them needing to win 4 of the 5 remaining games to make it

... DAY 2, SESSION 1 ...

That is all we have from this opening day of the first Test match which has been an absolute run-fest. Pakistan have loads to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the hosts? Or will England consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 2nd of December at 10.30 am IST (5 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

Right then, the first session will be really crucial for Pakistan if they are to have a chance in this game as they need early wickets. The new ball will be available in 5 more overs and if they are unable to get any reverse swing early they may opt to take it. England have some dangerous batters in their ranks and if they are not contained they could reach a massive total in really quick time. Their newfound positive approach has put them in a strong position and things have to go really wrong

The day has well and truly belonged to England and it was courtesy of an outstanding start from the openers who accumulated runs at will. The first session yielded over 170 runs and Pakistan looked like they were incapable of claiming a wicket. The second session was more or less the same for close to an hour but when the partnership was broken and both the openers were dismissed in quick succession, Pakistan may have felt that they had an opening. They got the big wicket of Joe Root as well b

England came out for the last session with Harry Brook and Ollie Pope looking to build on their partnership and it looked like they were in no mood to take it slow as they put on a 176-run stand in just 149 balls. Ollie Pope reached his ton and was dismissed shortly afterward by Mohammad Ali who has had a debut to forget but will definitely remember his first wicket. Harry Brook continued the onslaught even smashing four boundaries in one over bowled by and unfortunate Saud Shakeel. He raced

Session Summary - 21 overs, 174 runs, and 1 wicket. Another session which was dominated by the English batters and Pakistan do not seem to be getting a break. Two more centurions in their ranks which makes it the first time four batters have reached hundreds on Day 1 of a Test match and Joe Root will be feeling left out. England scored more than 8 runs per over in the final session and have crossed the 500-run mark, the first time this has been achieved on Day 1 of a Test match. A day full of

Harry Brook and Ollie Pope look to have settled at the wicket and yet another dangerous partnership is brewing for England. Pakistan put on a much better performance in this session. They are finally finding their lengths and troubling the England batters but they need to keep up the intensity in the last session of Day 1. There is still loads of time in the Test match and the game could go either way. Will Pakistan keep their discipline and get more wickets before the end of Day's play? Or

Despite things looking even in this session, it is England who have the upper hand in the game. Zak Crawley scored the fastest-ever century (86 balls) made by an English opener in Test cricket and his partner Ben Duckett reached his maiden century in a game that he is looking to make a comeback. Pakistan managed to break the 233-run opening partnership and sent both England openers back to the shed in consecutive overs. Joe Root and Ollie Pope put on a 51-run partnership to steady the sh

Session Summary - 27 overs, 158 runs, and 3 wickets. This can be easily considered as a shared session as England have scored runs far too freely and Pakistan have not been able to gain control of the game. It has been an excellent comeback from the Pakistan bowlers in the second session as they have managed to take three wickets on what looks like a difficult pitch for the bowlers. It must be said that the hosts have kept their intensity up and have not lost hope despite the onslaught

Pakistan will be hoping that the second session will reverse their fortunes and they are able to break this partnership at the earliest. England have a really long batting lineup and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to get back in this game. England will not want to change their plans as whatever they are doing is working wonders for them. Will they increase this partnership and will more records be broken on the way? Or will the hosts manage to find a breakthrough? D

Naseem Shah to Harry Brook, Bowls it fuller and on off, Harry Brook taps it to backward point for one.

The openers have put on a massive 174-run partnership in just 164 balls to make this England’s session without any doubt. Zak Crawley thumped 14 runs in the first over, the most runs that have been scored by England in the opening over of a Test match in over a century. He continued his onslaught and got to his half-century in quick time before going into the break with 91 runs in his kitty. Ben Duckett was slightly more watchful but gathered momentum to reach his half-century and ended the

Session Summary - 27 overs, 174 runs, and 0 wickets. We have had an entertaining first session of Test cricket as England have gotten off to a dream start in this first Test match and are well on course to post a mammoth total. Pakistan have lacked the rhythm and do not look like taking wickets as they have lacked penetration. The pitch has provided no assistance and Ben Stokes will be absolutely thrilled about winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Some positives to take out from this outing for the hosts is that they were amazing with the ball in this session. England has posted a mammoth total of 657 here and Pakistan certainly has a task to do. England continued their bazball approach but lost Ben Stokes pretty early in the day. Livingstone followed him soon, but Brook was the man to watch. Have to mention that

DRINKS! We will have another short refreshment break due to an extended first session. England have lost 4 wickets but scored at such a brisk rate that they are well ahead in this game. Pakistan will be hoping to take the last two wickets before Lunch so that they can work out their plans and come out in the second session.

Multiple records tumbled along the way in this game and we shall dig into some of them to understand the magnitude of England's effort. First and foremost, we shall focus on the massive total that the team achieved, which is the highest that has been scored on Day 1 of the Test match as no team has been able to cross the 500-run mark. The fact that the visitors achieved it with 15 overs unused in the day, makes the achievement even more special. With Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, and Ha

On Day 1, the visitors won the toss and despite Ben Stokes’ preference to chase targets in the fourth innings, he made the right decision to bat first on what appeared to be a dead track. Right from the start, the England openers looked to be positive and go after the bowlers. The Zak Crawley-Ben Duckett partnership accumulated 233 at better than a run every ball with both of them reaching centuries and Pakistan were able to get the breakthrough only in the second session. The hosts dis

Hello and welcome back, ladies and gentlemen to our coverage of Day 2 of the first Test in this historic series between Pakistan and England. It will be the visitors who would have slept well after their performance on Day 1 and with the bout of illness they had experienced before the game started, it is a good thing they are rested. Pakistan were completely outplayed but they would have to look deep at the flatness of the pitch. With them needing to win 4 of the 5 remaining games to make it

... DAY 2, SESSION 1 ...

That is all we have from this opening day of the first Test match which has been an absolute run-fest. Pakistan have loads to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the hosts? Or will England consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 2nd of December at 10.30 am IST (5 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

Right then, the first session will be really crucial for Pakistan if they are to have a chance in this game as they need early wickets. The new ball will be available in 5 more overs and if they are unable to get any reverse swing early they may opt to take it. England have some dangerous batters in their ranks and if they are not contained they could reach a massive total in really quick time. Their newfound positive approach has put them in a strong position and things have to go really wrong

The day has well and truly belonged to England and it was courtesy of an outstanding start from the openers who accumulated runs at will. The first session yielded over 170 runs and Pakistan looked like they were incapable of claiming a wicket. The second session was more or less the same for close to an hour but when the partnership was broken and both the openers were dismissed in quick succession, Pakistan may have felt that they had an opening. They got the big wicket of Joe Root as well b

England came out for the last session with Harry Brook and Ollie Pope looking to build on their partnership and it looked like they were in no mood to take it slow as they put on a 176-run stand in just 149 balls. Ollie Pope reached his ton and was dismissed shortly afterward by Mohammad Ali who has had a debut to forget but will definitely remember his first wicket. Harry Brook continued the onslaught even smashing four boundaries in one over bowled by and unfortunate Saud Shakeel. He raced

Session Summary - 21 overs, 174 runs, and 1 wicket. Another session which was dominated by the English batters and Pakistan do not seem to be getting a break. Two more centurions in their ranks which makes it the first time four batters have reached hundreds on Day 1 of a Test match and Joe Root will be feeling left out. England scored more than 8 runs per over in the final session and have crossed the 500-run mark, the first time this has been achieved on Day 1 of a Test match. A day full of

Harry Brook and Ollie Pope look to have settled at the wicket and yet another dangerous partnership is brewing for England. Pakistan put on a much better performance in this session. They are finally finding their lengths and troubling the England batters but they need to keep up the intensity in the last session of Day 1. There is still loads of time in the Test match and the game could go either way. Will Pakistan keep their discipline and get more wickets before the end of Day's play? Or

Despite things looking even in this session, it is England who have the upper hand in the game. Zak Crawley scored the fastest-ever century (86 balls) made by an English opener in Test cricket and his partner Ben Duckett reached his maiden century in a game that he is looking to make a comeback. Pakistan managed to break the 233-run opening partnership and sent both England openers back to the shed in consecutive overs. Joe Root and Ollie Pope put on a 51-run partnership to steady the sh

Session Summary - 27 overs, 158 runs, and 3 wickets. This can be easily considered as a shared session as England have scored runs far too freely and Pakistan have not been able to gain control of the game. It has been an excellent comeback from the Pakistan bowlers in the second session as they have managed to take three wickets on what looks like a difficult pitch for the bowlers. It must be said that the hosts have kept their intensity up and have not lost hope despite the onslaught

Pakistan will be hoping that the second session will reverse their fortunes and they are able to break this partnership at the earliest. England have a really long batting lineup and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to get back in this game. England will not want to change their plans as whatever they are doing is working wonders for them. Will they increase this partnership and will more records be broken on the way? Or will the hosts manage to find a breakthrough? D

Naseem Shah to Harry Brook, Bowls it fuller and on off, Harry Brook taps it to backward point for one.

The openers have put on a massive 174-run partnership in just 164 balls to make this England’s session without any doubt. Zak Crawley thumped 14 runs in the first over, the most runs that have been scored by England in the opening over of a Test match in over a century. He continued his onslaught and got to his half-century in quick time before going into the break with 91 runs in his kitty. Ben Duckett was slightly more watchful but gathered momentum to reach his half-century and ended the

Session Summary - 27 overs, 174 runs, and 0 wickets. We have had an entertaining first session of Test cricket as England have gotten off to a dream start in this first Test match and are well on course to post a mammoth total. Pakistan have lacked the rhythm and do not look like taking wickets as they have lacked penetration. The pitch has provided no assistance and Ben Stokes will be absolutely thrilled about winning the toss and electing to bat first.

Pakistan bowlers were good from the start and bagged some early wickets. Naseem Shah was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan with figures of 3 for 140. Not good numbers but they will be hoping on their batters now to put up a good opening stand for them.

Multiple records tumbled along the way in this game and we shall dig into some of them to understand the magnitude of England's effort. First and foremost, we shall focus on the massive total that the team achieved, which is the highest that has been scored on Day 1 of the Test match as no team has been able to cross the 500-run mark. The fact that the visitors achieved it with 15 overs unused in the day, makes the achievement even more special. With Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, and Ha

On Day 1, the visitors won the toss and despite Ben Stokes’ preference to chase targets in the fourth innings, he made the right decision to bat first on what appeared to be a dead track. Right from the start, the England openers looked to be positive and go after the bowlers. The Zak Crawley-Ben Duckett partnership accumulated 233 at better than a run every ball with both of them reaching centuries and Pakistan were able to get the breakthrough only in the second session. The hosts dis

Hello and welcome back, ladies and gentlemen to our coverage of Day 2 of the first Test in this historic series between Pakistan and England. It will be the visitors who would have slept well after their performance on Day 1 and with the bout of illness they had experienced before the game started, it is a good thing they are rested. Pakistan were completely outplayed but they would have to look deep at the flatness of the pitch. With them needing to win 4 of the 5 remaining games to make it

... DAY 2, SESSION 1 ...

That is all we have from this opening day of the first Test match which has been an absolute run-fest. Pakistan have loads to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the hosts? Or will England consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 2nd of December at 10.30 am IST (5 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

Right then, the first session will be really crucial for Pakistan if they are to have a chance in this game as they need early wickets. The new ball will be available in 5 more overs and if they are unable to get any reverse swing early they may opt to take it. England have some dangerous batters in their ranks and if they are not contained they could reach a massive total in really quick time. Their newfound positive approach has put them in a strong position and things have to go really wrong

The day has well and truly belonged to England and it was courtesy of an outstanding start from the openers who accumulated runs at will. The first session yielded over 170 runs and Pakistan looked like they were incapable of claiming a wicket. The second session was more or less the same for close to an hour but when the partnership was broken and both the openers were dismissed in quick succession, Pakistan may have felt that they had an opening. They got the big wicket of Joe Root as well b

England came out for the last session with Harry Brook and Ollie Pope looking to build on their partnership and it looked like they were in no mood to take it slow as they put on a 176-run stand in just 149 balls. Ollie Pope reached his ton and was dismissed shortly afterward by Mohammad Ali who has had a debut to forget but will definitely remember his first wicket. Harry Brook continued the onslaught even smashing four boundaries in one over bowled by and unfortunate Saud Shakeel. He raced

Session Summary - 21 overs, 174 runs, and 1 wicket. Another session which was dominated by the English batters and Pakistan do not seem to be getting a break. Two more centurions in their ranks which makes it the first time four batters have reached hundreds on Day 1 of a Test match and Joe Root will be feeling left out. England scored more than 8 runs per over in the final session and have crossed the 500-run mark, the first time this has been achieved on Day 1 of a Test match. A day full of

Harry Brook and Ollie Pope look to have settled at the wicket and yet another dangerous partnership is brewing for England. Pakistan put on a much better performance in this session. They are finally finding their lengths and troubling the England batters but they need to keep up the intensity in the last session of Day 1. There is still loads of time in the Test match and the game could go either way. Will Pakistan keep their discipline and get more wickets before the end of Day's play? Or

Despite things looking even in this session, it is England who have the upper hand in the game. Zak Crawley scored the fastest-ever century (86 balls) made by an English opener in Test cricket and his partner Ben Duckett reached his maiden century in a game that he is looking to make a comeback. Pakistan managed to break the 233-run opening partnership and sent both England openers back to the shed in consecutive overs. Joe Root and Ollie Pope put on a 51-run partnership to steady the sh

Session Summary - 27 overs, 158 runs, and 3 wickets. This can be easily considered as a shared session as England have scored runs far too freely and Pakistan have not been able to gain control of the game. It has been an excellent comeback from the Pakistan bowlers in the second session as they have managed to take three wickets on what looks like a difficult pitch for the bowlers. It must be said that the hosts have kept their intensity up and have not lost hope despite the onslaught

Pakistan will be hoping that the second session will reverse their fortunes and they are able to break this partnership at the earliest.

The openers have put on a massive 174-run partnership in just 164 balls to make this England’s session without any doubt. Zak Crawley thumped 14 runs in the first over, the most runs that have been scored by England in the opening over of a Test match in over a century. He continued his onslaught and got to his half-century in quick time before going into the break with 91 runs in his kitty.

Session Summary - 27 overs, 174 runs, and 0 wickets.

Pakistan have lacked the rhythm and do not look like taking wickets as they have lacked penetration. The pitch has provided no assistance and Ben Stokes will be absolutely thrilled about winning the toss and electing to bat first.
