Pakistan 17-0 by lunch chasing England’s 657 on the 2nd day of the First Test match
RAWALPINDI: On the second day of the opening Test against England, Pakistan scored 17 without a loss by lunch on Friday, after the visitors were all out for a mammoth 657 in Rawalpindi. Pakistan need 458 runs to avoid the follow-on. Openers Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique were on 11 and six respectively.
Earlier, resuming at 506-4, England added 151 runs in 125 minutes in the extended two-and-a-half-hour session, with Harry Brook taking his overnight score of 101 to 153 — one of four centurions in the innings.
Skipper Ben Stokes (41), debutant Liam Livingstone (nine), and Brook were all dismissed by pacer Naseem Shah, who finished with 3-140. Leg-spinner Zahid Mahmood conceded 235 for his four wickets — the most by a bowler on a Test debut.
The three-match Test series is England’s first in Pakistan after a period of 17 years.
