England Vs Pakistan 2nd Test: The second Test is being played in Southampton Test between England and Pakistan (Eng Vs Pak). The first day has not been special for Pakistan Cricket Team. He has lost 5 wickets within 126 runs. Pakistani batsmen were seen surrendering for England's sharp bowling. Abid Ali scored the highest score of 60 runs. Apart from him, no batsman could stand at the crease. Shan Masood, who scored a century in the last match, was also dismissed well. He was lbw by James Anderson. The video of his outing is becoming viral on social media.
Pakistan started slowly. The ball was taking a turn here and there on the pitch. Pakistan was having difficulty in playing ball. Shaan Masood and Abil Ali came out to bat. James Anderson came to bowl. Shan Masood was standing in front. He bowled outside, bowled in swing and came to the stumps. He tried to defend, but before that he hit the ball pads. On appeal, the umpire raised his finger and Shaan Masood was dismissed.

Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first. In the first session, the host fast bowlers kept the pressure on. Captain Azhar Ali, who scored just 139 runs in the last 12 Test innings, was on 20 when he had to take a lunch break 10 minutes before the rain. After lunch, Anderson sent him to the pavilion when Rory Burns caught him in the second slip. He was dismissed for his lunch score.
Asad Shafiq (5) was sent by Stuart Broad and Fawad Alam (0) was sent by Chris Woakes. Despite the poor bowling in the first Test, Anderson, who secured a place in the team, took two wickets for 35 runs in 15 overs. Let me tell, it is very important for Pakistan to win this match. If Pakistan loses this match then the series will also be out of their hands. England are currently 1-0 ahead in the 3-Test series.
