Stumps: England 106-2

Alistair Cook and the recalled Keaton Jennings began England's reply with the former opening his account with a guide down to third man for four.

Jennings was soon underway himself as England's opening pair frustrated Pakistan with some sharp running between the wickets.

A crisp square drive from Jennings gave him four more before Cook angled another boundary down to third man to take the score to 22-0.

With Pakistan's bowlers struggling to find the same amount of swing that Broad and co did, England moved onto 38-0, Jennings looking in good shape on his return.

Cook, too, was finding his touch and a beautiful straight drive from the veteran saw England pass 50 without loss.

Faheem Ashraf produced a probing spell when he was introduced to the attack and gained reward for his efforts when having Jennings caught behind for 29, leaving England on 53-1.

Joe Root got off the mark with a sweet clip through mid on for four and England progressed to 70-1 as Pakistan searched for another breakthrough.

Cook and Root looked largely untroubled thereafter until Cook gloved an attempted pull through to the keeper on 46.

Root (29*) and nightwatchman Dom Bess saw England through to the close of play at 106-2.


Tea: Pakistan all out 174

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed began the afternoon session in positive mood but when he played all round a full delivery from James Anderson, the tourists were reeling at 78-5.

Things got worse in the next over as Stuart Broad picked up his second LBW of the innings when Usman Salahuddin was defeated by a booming inswinger.

Pakistan were 79-7 moments later when Anderson got one to curl back to Faheem Ashraf who was pinned on the pads and dismissed for a duck.

Shadab Khan and Mohammad Amir tried to the repair the early damage and the former moved onto 13 with a crunching cover drive for four off the bowling of Broad.

Having frustrated England for 32 balls, many of which he struggled to lay a bat on, Amir was finally on his way when he flashed at another Anderson delivery which grazed the outside edge and nestled safely into Jonny Bairstow's gloves.

Anderson's mood was dampened somewhat when number 10 Hasan Ali then slammed him for three boundaries in an over as Pakistan fought to 127-8.

Meanwhile, Shadab continued to look an accomplished player and raced to 39 from only 38 balls when carving Chris Woakes through the covers for four.

Ali's fun ended on 24 when he was caught and bowled by Woakes with the score having progressed to 156-9.

Shadab passed fifty moments later, his second of the series, before he holed out to deep mid-wicket, handing Sam Curran his first Test wicket.

Pakistan were all out for 174 with Tea taken.


Lunch: Pakistan 68-4

Stuart Broad struck the first blow for England, Imam-ul-Haq well caught in the slips having earned a reprieve earlier in the over when given out LBW, only to be saved on review.

Broad and James Anderson continued to probe away, helped by overcast conditions, and the former claimed his second wicket of the morning when dismissing Azhar Ali with a sharp inswinger that pinned him LBW.

Haris Sohail continued to live a charmed life, a couple of edges running down to third man for four, but his luck ran out when he edged another into the cordon and Dawid Malan made no mistake at second slip, Chris Woakes the successful bowler.

Asad Shafiq (27) continued where he left off from Lord's, a glorious cover drive for four signalling his early intentions, and he looked untroubled until nicking Woakes to first slip where Alistair Cook held on at the second attempt.

Lunch was taken soon after with the visitors struggling on 68-4.
