Watch Pakistan openers make merry in the afternoon session

Having made merry for nearly four sessions to post a mammoth 657, England found the going predictably tough with the cherry on a benign Rawalpindi surface that has offered next to nothing for any kind of bowler. Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq batted through the afternoon session on Day 2 of the Rawalpindi Test. By the time umpires signalled Tea, both batters had passed 50 and the first-wicket stand stretched to 108. Pakistan will be banking on the left-right duo to kick on and convert their starts into daddy hundreds.
