Babar Azam and Saud Shakeel started well on Day 2 by keeping the scoreboard ticking but the introduction of Ollie Robinson put the brakes on their innings. He struck with his second ball and cleaned up the Pakistan skipper, his spell of 5-3-2-1 allowing England to tighten the screws as the wickets came from the other end to Jack Leach. The left-arm spinner picked up three wickets to dominate the wickets coloumn. Joe Root also got into the act with a couple of wickets in one over and Mark Wood applied the finishing touches.
