ENG🆚PAK: Hosts in a Spot of Bother😟

By Shadowfax🐎

England are struggling to gain😟 an advantage in the first Test against Pakistan after finding themselves at 193/6 in the 3⃣rd session on Day 2, in reply to Pakistan's first innings total of 339🙆. Pakistan started day 2⃣ at 282/6 but were skittled out before long as Chris Woakes turned up the heat🔥. Woakes scalped 6 wickets as Pakistan looked to have ended up with a below-par score😯. Misbah top-scored for Pakistan with 114☝.

England's innings got off to a solid start💨, despite the fall of Alex Hales to Rahat Ali. Cook (81) and Joe Root (48) put on a 110-run stand🎉 before leg-spinner Yasir Shah struck crucial blows💥 to dismiss Root, Ballance and Vince within the space of 29 runs. But just when it looked like Bairstow and Cook got another partnership going😏, Mohammed Amir dealt the hosts a big blow by having Cook chop on👍. Bairstow was then sent back by Yasir Shah. Chris Woakes & Moeen Ali are at the crease right now.
