anybody thinking england have a chance of winning this test should watch the england 1st innings and how bad we was at defending the swing and spin of the pakistan bowlers ?? now on a cut up wicket in the 4th innings you think england will get 250 hahahahahahaha

we will not even get 150 ? the wicket is cut up and spin with bounce will kill us it could be over before tea tomorrow

Yep top order will block then get out they need to change tact and get quick runs run between the wickets more just keep busy.

Just seen the highlights of Pakistans bowling from yesterday. It'll be a miracle if England win this one.

Their leg spinner looked so dangerous.

Being talked about as a match in the balance, but imho, still v much in Pakistan’s favour at moment esp having seen how their bowlers performed first innings. Unless England’s batsmen have learned from the experience...

Compare and contrast the first test against the Windies to the next two. While the two (Pak & Win) attacks are not comparable in quality, I think England will learn. Eng 1st innings was like a rabbit in the headlights and I reckon they'll be more disciplined/cautious in the 2nd inn. Time or RR isn't a factor.

It's not an easy task by any stretch, against what is clearly a quality bowling line up. But there is enough batting in the Eng side to get us over the line. Win or lose, I'm looking forward to a great(hopefully couple of) days cricket.

I do agree that the balance is still in Pakistan's favour, imo around 70/30. But at 12/3 Eng and 100/4 Pak we looked dead and buried, Guess it's what we love about test cricket, ain't over till it's over :)

Terrible terrible cricket there by England. Root is a poor captain. Still in the game though somehow
