Root defiant after Pakistan make early inroads

Root defiant after Pakistan make early inroads

Joe Root’s unbeaten half-century helped stuttering England reach 182 for three at the close on the second day of the second test on Friday after Pakistan’s seam and spin attack ran through the tourists’ top order. Pakistan, playing in their adopted UAE home, were bowled out for 378 before lunch, some erratic slogging causing the hosts’ last five wickets to fall for 44 runs. Pakistan pacemen Wahab Riaz and Imran Khan were given the new ball and captain Misbah-ul-Haq packed the slip cordon. Wahab had Moeen Ali (1) caught brilliantly by Shan Masood at short-leg. Skipper Alastair Cook was joined at the crease by Ian Bell (4) and the veteran No. 3 was again found wanting, feathering a full Khan delivery to the slips as England slumped to 14 for two. Root and Cook -- test cricket’s top two run scorers in 2015 -- repelled Pakistan’s ferocious onslaught to reach 105-2 at tea, although England’s skipper was fortunate on 27. Attempting to sweep Zulfiqar Babar, the ball struck pad and skidded on to the stumps but miraculously the bails stayed on. Hundreds more Pakistan fans appeared after Friday prayers, the field masked in late-afternoon shadow at Dubai International Stadium as a crowd of about 4,000 looked on, England’s support a mix of expatriate residents and the travelling Barmy Army. Misbah brought Yasir Shah to the fore as the light faded.
