- Second Test, day two: England 281 and 202-5; Pakistan 202
- Pakistan have mountain to climb after collapse of eight for 60
As the yolk-like sun set on a second dizzying day in Multan, it felt like England had not just furthered their prospects of claiming a famous series win on their first visit to Pakistan in 17 years, but also learned a bit more about themselves along the way.
A bit like the proverbial wet Wednesday in Stoke, many had wondered how this collection of instinctive dashers would fare when ball has the edge over bat. Pakistan were clearly among the doubters, responding to England’s ransacking of Rawalpindi by ordering a slow turning surface 300 miles south and packing their attack with spinners.
