DUBAI: Pakistan’s bowlers wore down a tough resistance from England’s tail to win the second Test by an emphatic 178-run margin in Dubai on Monday, taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Leg-spinner Yasir Shah (4-87) and left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar (3-53) shared the bowling honours as England, set a daunting 491-run target, were bowled out for 312 late on the fifth day with just 6.3 overs left in the match at Dubai stadium.
9.4 to Cook, 82.4 kph, goes for the sweep, top-edged out towards deep backward square… and taken! Yasir hops around in delight, he’s got his man again, getting a bit of extra bounce out of the rough. Cook’s sojourn is a brief one this time and if he hasn’t got the stomach for the fight then I don’t fancy the chances for the rest of them 19/2
71.5 to Bairstow, 86.2 kph, oh cripes, that’s cleaned him up! A pretty awful shot, as Bairstow wafted tamely around his front pad without much conviction or footwork. A well-flighted googly sneaks through the gap and shivers his timbers! 163/5
80.6 to Buttler, 86.7 kph, beautiful leg-spin bowling! Perfect line and length, turns, bounces, attacks the edge, carries to slip, impeccable and England are six-down! 178/6
137.3 to Rashid, 83.4 kph, gone! Rashid has driven loosely into the covers, Pakistan have won the Test match! Why did he chase that? The massive rip from Yasir played its part … he felt he needed to be firm in his shot selection with so many men circling, but he chose the wrong ball to larrup 312/10
