The second innings from both teams was a low-scoring affair. The pitch opening up resulted in both teams scoring way lower than what they had in the second innings. England declared at 264/7 setting Pakistan a target of 343 to win.
Led by James Anderson‘s four-wicket haul and with support from Ollie Robinson, England bowled out Pakistan for 268 winning the match by 74 runs. Another win in the second Test would give the visitors an elusive Test win in Pakistan for the frst time in 22 years.
England and Pakistan have played 86 Test matches till date with England winning 26 games and Pakistan 21. As many as 39 matches ended in a draw. The series is a part of the ongoing ICC World Test Championship with Australia leading the points table. Pakistan are placed fifth and England seventh at the moment.
Multan, the venue of the second Test has hosted only five Test matches till date the last of which was in 2006. Like all the grounds in Pakistan, Multan is also a favourable batting wicket. It will aid the spinners in the last two days of a Test match. The Rawalpindi pitch was hugely criticised for being a flat wicket with no help at all for the fast bowlers. It will be interesting to see how the Multan pitch plays.
