The groups went off the field prior to tea because of the gloom, with Pakistan on 215-8, and came back for only another 9 balls, during which Stuart Broad took his third wicket of the innings and the travelers transferred to 223-9.

Shaheen Afridi (0) was gone out by Dom Sibley at the non-strikers end after a mix-up.

On events, there were 5 or six out near the boundary as Root spread the field. Anderson has the finest bowling figures, with 3-48. Broad had 3-56. The tourists route 1-0 in the three-match series after losing the first match by 3 wickets in Manchester.
