England will look to extend their lead when they resume batting against Pakistan’s bowlers on Day 3 of the Headingley Test at Leeds. The hosts ended Day 2 at 302 for 7, with an overall lead of 128.
On a tough surface, England battled hard on the second day. None got even a half-century, but there were important contributions all round. Dominic Bess top-scored on the day with 49 while Joe Root made 45.
Jos Buttler was unbeaten on 34 at stumps. Earlier, Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow contributed 20s each. For Pakistan, their bowlers fought hard. Mohammad Amir and Faheem Ashraf claimed two wickets each. But, their batsmen would have to bat out of their skins for Pakistan to remain in the Test.
