England Vs Pakistan: An excellent day for England. Day 2 of the second test between England and Pakistan brought much more action in the game as Pakistan were bundled out for 202 runs and England added 202 runs to the lead while they also lost 5 wickets. Jack Leach of England was the top performer for the side, and Babar Azam of Pakistan scored the most runs.

Ben Duckett and Harry Brook hit the fifties as England extended their lead over Pakistan to 281 at Stumps on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test in Multan. Let’s take a brief review of day 2-

England Vs Pakistan: 2nd Test | Day 2| Review

Pakistan started the day with a lot of hopes with just  2 wickets down. 107 for 2 wickets, Pakistan started day 2 with a few lovely drives and boundaries. Babar and Shakeel added 35 runs in the morning. Shakeel scored his 50. It was the first bowl of Robinson that flew the bails of Babar when he was looking stable at 75 runs. 

Afterward, English bowlers began to put pressure on Rizwan, and his first run came in the 28th ball he faced. As soon as Leach sent Rizwan to the pavilion as well, the Pakistani batting order collapsed like a house of cards. Although the session lasted 35 overs, England was able to dismiss the hosts for 202 runs.

What an unlucky call for Zak Crawley as he got run out on his own call where it wasn’t even a run. Now the pitch was behaving slowish and offering no bounce which affected the batting. The Day-1 Hero Abrar Ahmed shines again and took down Will Jacks with a beauty. A 54 runs partnership between Root and Duckett came to an end with Abrar taking down Root. Abrar later also clean bowled Ben Duckett as the ball kept a low bounce.

Brook is toying with those Pakistani bowlers and at end of day 2, he remained not out for 74 with Stokes at 16. England are now at 202 with the loss of 5 wickets gaining the lead of 281 runs.
