Pakistan 2nd Innings:
Day 4 Summary: England made a bold declaration and then short-ball tactics to great effect to be on course for a comprehensive victory in the opening test against Pakistan on Sunday. Having taken a 78-run lead in the runfest, England declared their second innings on 264-7 to set Pakistan an improbable victory target of 343 with four sessions to go.
On a docile pitch where seven batsmen smashed hundreds, England’s pace attack bent their backs and diligently pursued a short-ball strategy to dent Pakistan’s top order. The home side finished the penultimate day on 80-2, still 263 behind their target, with number three batsman Azhar Ali unlikely to bat again after retiring hurt with a damaged finger.
Opener Imam-ul-Haq (43) and debutant Saud Shakeel (24) were resisting England’s victory march when bad light stopped play. England’s Joe Root surprised all by batting left-handed against leg spinner Zahid Mahmood for a couple of deliveries before returning to his usual stance. Earlier, Pakistan were bowled out for 579 in reply to England’s first-innings 657.
