Pak vs Eng 2nd Test on Day 4: Rain stops play as ENG start batting
August 16, 2020
SOUTHAMPTON (Web Desk) - Just after an hour's play on Day 4 a combination of bad light and rain stopped the play, with England trailing Pakistan by 229 runs in the second test against England on Sunday. England are batting on Day 4 in the 2nd Test, after Pakistan were bowled out for 236 in their first innings. Earlier, Mohammad Rizwan's fighting half-century helped Pakistan post 236 runs in their first innings. After a frustrating day 3, the play started right on time on Sunday and Mohammad Rizwan added some crucial runs to his overnight score before he got out trying to flick a Stuart Broad delivery. Broad was the pick of the bowlers for England, picking up four wickets for 56 runs. James Anderson also had a successful outing as he dismissed three batsmen, while Sam Curran and Chris Woakes picked up one wicket each. Apart from the persistent rain, the bad light has also been a major concern in the Test match as it has affected the play on all three days so far. After his side posted a respectable first innings total, Shaheen Shah Afridi got Pakistan off to a great start as he removed Rory Burns in his very first over for a duck, before the bad light forced the players to leave the field.
