Mohammad Hafeez was unbeaten on 70 and Younis Khan was on six.
In yesterday’s match, Saeed Ajmal claimed a career-best seven for 55 in the England innings as the tourists slumped to 43 for five before managing to reach 192 courtesy wicket-keeper Matt Prior’s 70. In reply,
Mohammad Hafeez and Taufeeq Umar took Pakistan to 42 without loss at stumps.
While Ajmal celebrated a superb performance that left the England batsmen perplexed, Prior said the pitch had no demons and insisted that it was a ‘good surface’.
Prior also praised Graeme Swann, who made 34 and stuck around with the wicket-keeper to add a valuable 57 for the eighth wicket after they were reduced to 94 for seven.
