- Third Test, day two: Pakistan 304 & 21-0; England 354
- England lead hosts by 29 runs at stumps in Karachi
In a winter where a T20 World Cup was added to England’s trophy cabinet and a historic series win in Pakistan has already been secured, it may yet be that the thing referenced most heavily in years to come is the emergence of Harry Brook.
Hyperbole? Possibly. And yet such thoughts certainly arose during an engrossing second day in Karachi as the 23‑year‑old finessed his third century of the tour with a sublime 111 from 150 balls. It was crucial, too, helping England to a first‑innings lead of 50 runs as they seek a first clean sweep on Pakistani soil.
