England vs Pakistan (ENG vs PAK) 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights: Pakistan were 223/9, led by a lower order resistance from unbeaten batsman Mohammad Rizwan, before bad light forced the players to go off on Day 2. Both the opening days of the 2nd Test have now seen at least half of the day being suspended, either due to rain or bad light.
Pakistan held firm against England’s seam attack in a shortened session before lunch on the second day of the second Test, adding 29 runs without the loss of a wicket at the Rose Bowl on Friday. The start was delayed by 90 minutes because of morning rain. Babar Azam (45 not out) and Mohammad Rizwan (12 not out) dealt with a swinging ball as Pakistan reached lunch on 155-5, though Chris Woakes was unlucky not to find an outside edge from a couple of superb deliveries to Rizwan. Babar Azam fell before his 50 in the afternoon session, but Rizwan guided the innings commandingly to steer them across 200.
