Summary

  • England carved out a 128-run lead over Pakistan on a rain-affected day two of their must-win second Test at Headingley.
  • SCORECARD | AS IT HAPPENEDDom Bess (49) and Jos Buttler (34no) made the most meaningful contributions after Joe Root fell for 45 as the hosts – looking to avoid a first home Test series defeat since 2014 – closed on 302-7.
  • Bess also fell to a rising delivery, this time from spinner Shadab Khan, as he missed out on a second successive fifty, having hit 57 on debut in England’s nine-wicket defeat at Lord’s last week.
  • Buttler remains on course for a second consecutive fifty, though, and the eighth of his Test career, due to Hasan’s error off the bowling of Shadab.
  • Watch day three of the second Test between England and Pakistan from 10am on Sunday on Sky Sports Cricket and Sky Sports Main Event.
