    This is going to be like General Elphinstone's attempt to escape his British army from Kabul to Jalalabad and all his team where slaughtered by Pathan tribesmen.

        Ha ha... 222 to get with 9 wickets , last crickviz I saw was 60-40 or so Pakistan. This could be a Root ton day, he has played very well- Pakistan chatter is constant- with the spinners in there’s great intrigue.

          Big wicket now, Root out for 42, when playing well. 96-3, 181 needed, 7 wickets but only a couple more batsmen really, then some bowlers who can bat.

                The pope has been stitched up like a kafir.

                  167 for 5 at Tea. Buttler and Woakes have put on 50 in 49 balls.

                  110 left.

                    Pakistan need to be careful. Though as the target seems possibly reachable .......the batsmen will tighten up.

                          Hardly inching, when pope got out to an unplayable ball the pressure seemed to leave Buttler, fantastic support from Woakes, near century stand in 20 overs. New ball could still tell a tale.

                            Buttler and Woakes came together at 117 for 5 and have put on 119 as I type. 43 needed in about 20 overs plus a day.

                              Great game- at one point crickviz only gave England 9% of winning.

                                Great effort by England, very well done. Maybe naive captaincy from Pak. Sort of sat back after Pope went and waited for England to get themselves out.
