    Alastair Cook: "Always a tempter with a nice bit of green grass but we would have batted, looks a really good wicket."

    Pakistan bat first.

    Bowling attack is Rahat, Amir & Wahab. Called it @ASLI-PATHAN

    One dimensional bowling. . Should have picked imran or sohail instead of one left arm pacer

    Good toss to win... The surface looks good and the sun is out. Time to get some runs and put pressure on England.

    Three left arm pacers is very interesting and could come back to bite us... Wahab is questionable due to conditions.

    But we are batting first so all eyes on hafeez.

    No, you should pick your best bowlers doesn't matter if they're left arm or right arm. Rahat is more suited to these conditions than Imran.

    Should have played Imran Khan in place of big mouth Wahab, who has been all talk and no show since WC 2015.

    England bat deep. Their tail is impressive. While amir and wahab have talent with the bat, they have looked like number 11 with the bat and yasir ( had domestic batting hype) showed no talent.. From 8 our ability to bat diminishes greatly. Top order can't mess this in 8 innings.

    Broad, Finn, Woakes is still a formidable bowling attack... And this debutante Jake Ball would be dangerous if he turns out to be a lalloo bowler

    Not really.. you need variety in attack and tbh wahab is a big risk for tests.. but lets hope for best

    Hafeez did well to survive the first over there.

    He could have been out twice.

    That was not great footwork from Hafeez.

    He was caught in no-man's land and that was perilously close to the stumps.

    Huge, huge match and series for Pakistan.

    Brave decision by Misbah to play the three lefties considering Imran Khan Jr. has consistently played more Tests than Rahat in the last year and a half or so.

    Immediate re-selection of Ballance is such an Eid gift, it is unbelievable.

    How's your nerves ?

    Need openers to blunt the new ball, survive the first hour, then under the sun the pitch eases up for batting.
