Pakistan were off to a brilliant start with the ball on day 2 of the England vs Pakistan first Test match. Their pace attack restricted England to 12-3 within six overs with Mohammad Abbas taking two wickets and Shaheen Afridi took the other to leave the hosts tottering with their entire top-order in the hut. The pair’s quick wickets certainly excited Twitter with many netizens taking to the social media platform to express their delight in watching them bowl in tandem. Many also were excited about the young quick prospect Naseem Shah. Pakistan vs England Live Score Updates of 1st Test Day 2.
Shaheen Afridi trapped Rory Burns in the very first over. Burns was caught in two minds while trying to play a length delivery and although the umpire turned down the appeal, Pakistan overturned that call with a review. Two overs later, Mohammad Abbas trapped Dominic Sibley with a nipper after setting the right-hander up with some deliveries from outside the off-stump. Abbas then bowled a peach of a delivery to bowl Ben Stokes leaving England reeling.

Pace Battery from Pakistan

Earlier, Shan Masood scored a brilliant 156 from 319 deliveries to help Pakistan post 326 on board after they had opted to bat first. Pakistan lost Babar Azam early and Mohammad Rizwan managed only nine runs from 41 deliveries before Chris Woakes ended his struggle. Shadab Khan, however, gave good company to Masood and helped the latter score his fifth Test hundred. Shadab was dismissed on 45 but Masood went on to record 150-plus score.
