An imposing 233-run stand between Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett laid the foundation for England, who remained in the ascendancy despite the loss of three wickets in the afternoon session as Ollie Pope made a fluent ton. Pakistan have dished out an absolute featherbed and have been on a leather hunt ever since England skipper Ben Stokes won the toss and gladly elected to bat first. England’s score reads 450/3 in the 69th over and Pakistan need wickets aplenty to gain a semblance of control over the contest.
