    Pakistan will require 333 more runs to avoid follow on when Day 3 starts but with only 6 wickets left, even that looks like a herculean effort at this time for Misbah and co.

    Chances of rain are also there, so England would want to bat only once in this test.

    Need at least 2 century partnerships for the next 2 wickets. Once we avoid the follow on and with some rain this test can be saved.

    Not much batting left after this. We know Masood is a walking wicket so it's just Misbah and Shafiq left. Sarafraz can be good for a 30 to 40 but that's about it. Not sure if this is going to be enough.

    With 15 wickets left for Pakistan in all in this game and just under 3 days and rain to help I think Pakistan is still more than capable to saving this match. All they need to do is build big partnerships like they do on flat-ish decks in UAE. If Cook and Root can bat days on end then YK and Misbah need to show their class and do the same. Past is past, they need to stand up again for their country.
    Hafeez, Shan, Azhar are just no hopers right now.

    Also I think it might be time for Pakistan to move Asad up to no.3. He's proved his class in many different games now and it is well known that he has the best game in the test side. Might be worth looking at the following small changes:

    1. Hafeez/Shan
    2. Azhar
    3. Asad
    4. YK
    5. Misbah
    6. Babar
    7. Sarfraz

    This would definitely make the line up a little more solid

    Probably 2 days left Pak got 15 wickets in hand. Best chance to draw.

    Pakistan's timid mindset when batting yesterday has probably cost them the game.

    Such a defeatist mentality and approach to defend all. Allowing the bowler to settle and dictate.

    So far Pakistan have played this game like a side ranked no. 30 in the world, not no.3.
    Been such a shockingly soft performance it just baffles everyone. No ones turned up for this game
