Pakistan

328/10(102.1 Overs)

Have to assume the wicket will be at its best on Day 1 and probably Day 2 and Pakistan need to cash in. They will be wanting to take the lead as they will be batting last. Can the big names in their XI come to the fore. England on the other hand, will once again rely on their pacers to do the job for them. However, the wicket was assisting the spinners in the first innings, will the English pacers come to the fore though again?

For Pakistan, it was hard work before Abrar Ahmed weaved his magic. The pacers did not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and they struggled to pick wickets. Abrar Ahmed though spun a web and was on course of taking all 10. However, Zahid Mahmood contributed towards the end as he helped his side clean the tail up.

England, won't be very disappointed with the score they have! It is we feel, an in-between total on a wicket which did assist the bowlers. England actually were off to a really good start. They 145 for 2 but once Root fell, it was a procession, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They tried to counter-attack but Pakistan always managed to break the stand which was starting to flourish. However, because of the way England batted, they have got themselves close to the 300-run mark.

It is Abrar Ahmed who leads Pakistan off the field and a standing ovation from the crowd here for him! He totally deserves it. Absolutely brilliant and he has had a dream debut. He is surely the reason for England being bowled out on Day 1 itself. He has 7 out of the 10 to fall and this game so far, is surely about him.

Zahid Mahmood to James Anderson, ! TIMBER! Pakistan finally get the last wicket! This is tossed up, slower and on off, James Anderson looks to play the switch hit but is done in by the dip n the delivery, it hits thew stumps. ENGLAND ARE ALL OUT FOR 281!

Zahid Mahmood to James Anderson, No hat-trick for Zahid! On middle, this is defended.

Zahid Mahmood to Jack Leach, ! TIMBER! Two in two for Zahid Mahmood and England are 9 down now! Very uncharacteristic of Leach. He looks to play the switch hit but this is bowled slower yet again and on the stumps. Leach is through his shot and it hits the stumps. Can England be bowled under 250 now? 

Zahid Mahmood to Ollie Robinson, ! TAKEN! Finally, a wicket for a Pakistan bowler other than Abrar Ahmed! One thing is for sure now, he won't be taking a ten-fer. This is tossed up nicely on middle, a lot slower. Ollie Robinson goes for the slog sweep again, this one flies off the top edge towards mid on. Mohammad Nawaz takes an easy catch.

...Day 1, Session 2...

At the start of the match, it looked like it will be a hard, toiling day for the Pakistani bowlers as there was nothing much for the seamers but once the spinners were introduced the tides changed the direction. Abrar Ahmed would have thought about a wicket or so against the mighty English players but he was disciplined with his line and lengths and the youngsters ended with a five-fer. England on the other hand kept the counter attacking approach rolling. Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope led from

A much, much better performance from Pakistan and they have made the most of the pitch. What an impressive debut for Ahmed. A five-fer on debut, stuff of dreams, take a bow. He leads his team as the Pakistani players walk off. Brilliant bowling.

Pakistan (Playing XI) - Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Babar Azam (C), Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz (In for Mohammad Nawaz), Faheem Ashraf (In for Naseem Shah), Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Ali, Abrar Ahmed (In for Haris Rauf) (On his Debut).

England (Playing XI) - Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope (WK), Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (C), Will Jacks, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood (In for Liam Livingstone), Jack Leach, James Anderson.

TOSS - England have won the toss and will BAT first!

Have to assume the wicket will be at its best on Day 1 and probably Day 2 and Pakistan need to cash in. They will be wanting to take the lead as they will be batting last. Can the big names in their XI come to the fore. England on the other hand, will once again rely on their pacers to do the job for them. However, the wicket was assisting the spinners in the first innings, will the English pacers come to the fore though again?

For Pakistan, it was hard work before Abrar Ahmed weaved his magic. The pacers did not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and they struggled to pick wickets. Abrar Ahmed though spun a web and was on course of taking all 10. However, Zahid Mahmood contributed towards the end as he helped his side clean the tail up.

England, won't be very disappointed with the score they have! It is we feel, an in-between total on a wicket which did assist the bowlers. England actually were off to a really good start. They 145 for 2 but once Root fell, it was a procession, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They tried to counter-attack but Pakistan always managed to break the stand which was starting to flourish. However, because of the way England batted, they have got themselves close to the 300-run mark.

It is Abrar Ahmed who leads Pakistan off the field and a standing ovation from the crowd here for him! He totally deserves it. Absolutely brilliant and he has had a dream debut. He is surely the reason for England being bowled out on Day 1 itself. He has 7 out of the 10 to fall and this game so far, is surely about him.

Zahid Mahmood to James Anderson, ! TIMBER! Pakistan finally get the last wicket! This is tossed up, slower and on off, James Anderson looks to play the switch hit but is done in by the dip n the delivery, it hits thew stumps. ENGLAND ARE ALL OUT FOR 281!

Zahid Mahmood to Ollie Robinson, ! TAKEN! Finally, a wicket for a Pakistan bowler other than Abrar Ahmed! One thing is for sure now, he won't be taking a ten-fer. This is tossed up nicely on middle, a lot slower. Ollie Robinson goes for the slog sweep again, this one flies off the top edge towards mid on. Mohammad Nawaz takes an easy catch.

At the start of the match, it looked like it will be a hard, toiling day for the Pakistani bowlers as there was nothing much for the seamers but once the spinners were introduced the tides changed the direction. Abrar Ahmed would have thought about a wicket or so against the mighty English players but he was disciplined with his line and lengths and the youngsters ended with a five-fer. England on the other hand kept the counter attacking approach rolling. Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope led from

Pakistan (Playing XI) - Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Babar Azam (C), Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz (In for Mohammad Nawaz), Faheem Ashraf (In for Naseem Shah), Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Ali, Abrar Ahmed (In for Haris Rauf) (On his Debut).

England (Playing XI) - Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope (WK), Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (C), Will Jacks, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood (In for Liam Livingstone), Jack Leach, James Anderson.

TOSS - England have won the toss and will BAT first!

Have to assume the wicket will be at its best on Day 1 and probably Day 2 and Pakistan need to cash in. They will be wanting to take the lead as they will be batting last. Can the big names in their XI come to the fore. England on the other hand, will once again rely on their pacers to do the job for them. However, the wicket was assisting the spinners in the first innings, will the English pacers come to the fore though again?

For Pakistan, it was hard work before Abrar Ahmed weaved his magic. The pacers did not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and they struggled to pick wickets. Abrar Ahmed though spun a web and was on course of taking all 10. However, Zahid Mahmood contributed towards the end as he helped his side clean the tail up.

England, won't be very disappointed with the score they have! It is we feel, an in-between total on a wicket which did assist the bowlers. England actually were off to a really good start. They 145 for 2 but once Root fell, it was a procession, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They tried to counter-attack but Pakistan always managed to break the stand which was starting to flourish. However, because of the way England batted, they have got themselves close to the 300-run mark.

It is Abrar Ahmed who leads Pakistan off the field and a standing ovation from the crowd here for him! He totally deserves it. Absolutely brilliant and he has had a dream debut. He is surely the reason for England being bowled out on Day 1 itself. He has 7 out of the 10 to fall and this game so far, is surely about him.

Zahid Mahmood to James Anderson, ! TIMBER! Pakistan finally get the last wicket! This is tossed up, slower and on off, James Anderson looks to play the switch hit but is done in by the dip n the delivery, it hits thew stumps. ENGLAND ARE ALL OUT FOR 281!

...Day 1, Session 2...

Abrar Ahmed would have thought about a wicket or so against the mighty English players but he was disciplined with his line and lengths and the youngsters ended with a five-fer. England on the other hand kept the counter attacking approach rolling. Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope led from

Faheem Ashraf to Zak Crawley, Faheem Ashraf starts with a length ball, outside off, bit of away movement. Zak Crawley taps it to point. 

Pakistan (Playing XI) - Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Babar Azam (C), Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz (In for Mohammad Nawaz), Faheem Ashraf (In for Naseem Shah), Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Ali, Abrar Ahmed (In for Haris Rauf) (On his Debut).

England (Playing XI) - Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope (WK), Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes (C), Will Jacks, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood (In for Liam Livingstone), Jack Leach, James Anderson.

TOSS - England have won the toss and will BAT first!

Have to assume the wicket will be at its best on Day 1 and probably Day 2 and Pakistan need to cash in. They will be wanting to take the lead as they will be batting last. Can the big names in their XI come to the fore. England on the other hand, will once again rely on their pacers to do the job for them. However, the wicket was assisting the spinners in the first innings, will the English pacers come to the fore though again?

For Pakistan, it was hard work before Abrar Ahmed weaved his magic. The pacers did not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and they struggled to pick wickets. Abrar Ahmed though spun a web and was on course of taking all 10. However, Zahid Mahmood contributed towards the end as he helped his side clean the tail up.

England, won't be very disappointed with the score they have! It is we feel, an in-between total on a wicket which did assist the bowlers. England actually were off to a really good start. They 145 for 2 but once Root fell, it was a procession, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. They tried to counter-attack but Pakistan always managed to break the stand which was starting to flourish. However, because of the way England batted, they have got themselves close to the 300-run mark.

It is Abrar Ahmed who leads Pakistan off the field and a standing ovation from the crowd here for him! He totally deserves it. Absolutely brilliant and he has had a dream debut. He is surely the reason for England being bowled out on Day 1 itself. He has 7 out of the 10 to fall and this game so far, is surely about him.

Zahid Mahmood to James Anderson, ! TIMBER! Pakistan finally get the last wicket! This is tossed up, slower and on off, James Anderson looks to play the switch hit but is done in by the dip n the delivery, it hits thew stumps. ENGLAND ARE ALL OUT FOR 281!

Zahid Mahmood to Ollie Robinson, ! TAKEN! Finally, a wicket for a Pakistan bowler other than Abrar Ahmed! One thing is for sure now, he won't be taking a ten-fer.

...Day 1, Session 2...

At the start of the match, it looked like it will be a hard, toiling day for the Pakistani bowlers as there was nothing much for the seamers but once the spinners were introduced the tides changed the direction. Abrar Ahmed would have thought about a wicket or so against the mighty English players but he was disciplined with his line and lengths and the youngsters ended with a five-fer. England on the other hand kept the counter attacking approach rolling. Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope led from

A much, much better performance from Pakistan and they have made the most of the pitch. What an impressive debut for Ahmed. A five-fer on debut, stuff of dreams, take a bow. He leads his team as the Pakistani players walk off. Brilliant bowling.
