I hope this learns the ECB to stick to playing at Edgbaston,Old Trafford,Headlingley,Trent Bridge and Chester-le-Street

Yeah pretty amazing we consistently do this for away teams. Pitch like this massively favours Pakistan who like lower scoring games and slower wickets. Need to find a way past 250 but we might struggle with 209 at this rate

Stokes just playing within himself here (as I type this he skips down the pitch to try and punt it over the boundary), he wants to play his usual way I'm sure but the situation just dragging him back.

12 overs to go, may be some gentle acceleration from here on in.

Yeah, Ali should have a go as Rashid can do an ok job knocking the ball round next if he fails. Anything under 250 is not going to cause any problems.

Another ill advised hook shot to the big square boundary with men out for the catch! Excellent catch though.

Yeah this one is over, Pakistan take full credit. Superb bowling effort, almost no let off in pressure from any of their bowlers aside from perhaps the leggie. Don't think we've actually batted absolutely terribly, they've just been excellent.

Pak have bowled well but not so well that it can't be repeated by ENg later in the game, if that makes any sense.

Not sure you can ever say that with this England side and the unpredictability of Pakistan.

Looking back it was Root getting out that was the killer.

Don't think it is over though, could easily see Pakistan messing up a chase of 230.
