England made a brave declaration in their second innings, asking Pakistan to chase 342 for victory in about 100, light permitting. Pakistan had wiped out 80 runs from their target but lost two of their first-innings centurions Abdullah Shafique and Babar Azam in the process while experienced campaigner Azhar Ali had to retire hurt with a finger injury. At 25/2, Pakistan were reeling. But the pair of Imam-ul-Haq and Saud Shakeel managed to work their way out of trouble.
