Southampton, August 14
Pakistan held agency towards England’s seam assault in a shortened session earlier than lunch on the second day of the second Test, including 29 runs with out the lack of a wicket on the Rose Bowl on Friday.
The begin was delayed by 90 minutes due to morning rain in Southampton, leaving England an hour to make additional inroads within the first session after decreasing Pakistan to 126-5 by stumps on Day 1.
Babar Azam (45 not out) and Mohammad Rizwan (12 not out) handled a swinging ball as Pakistan reached lunch on 155-5, although Chris Woakes — particularly — was unfortunate to not discover an out of doors edge from a few excellent deliveries to Rizwan.
Pakistan is plodding alongside at a run price of two.54, with Babar trying key to its hopes of an honest first-innings whole as he approaches his 15th half-century in checks.
The vacationers path 1-Zero within the three-match collection after dropping the primary match by three wickets in Manchester.
Another victory for England will clinch a primary check collection towards Pakistan in 10 years, and a second collection of this pandemic-affected summer time having already overwhelmed the West Indies. AP
