England v Pakistan: second Test, day three – live updates!


11th over: Pakistan 48-3 (Imam 16, Salahuddin 2) Sam Curran brought on for a twist before the break. Imam doesn’t mind that, flicking away the birthday boy’s loosener for his third boundary. The left-hander is comfortable, using his bat throughout, and is unlucky not to get another boundary from the penultimate delivery of the session that’s stopped well at cover. That is lunch, the visitors still trailing by 141 runs.

Earlier, England piled in 61 runs inside 11 overs for their last three wickets. The bulk of those were from the bat of Buttler, who went up the gears in a real hurry once the eighth wicket fell. The highlight was a huge blow into the football stand currently under construction. He also got to his half-century with a six over fine leg and was the only England batsmen to reach 50, finishing unbeaten on 80.
