After the defeat in the fist test at historic Lords ground, England will definitely look to make a come back. They got good record on Headingley ground. But at the moment they are struggling with injuries, their premier all rounder Ben Stokes is doubtful for the second game. Sam Curran has been called as the back up, the other change they made by Mark Stoneman, they called in Keaton Jennings in his place.
In the first test England couldn’t even last for 5 days, match ended on day 4 with Pakistan winning with 9 wickets. England was bundled out for mere 184 in the first innings and they manged on 242 in second innings. On the other hand Pakistan made 363/9 in first innings and they went past the set target of 64 by losing only one wicket.
Buoyed by their win at Lords Pakistan would look to seal a historic series win. All pressure will be on England for Pakistan even if they mange to draw the game here they will win the series. England on the other hand has to win to draw level. Pakistani fast bowlers are in real good form. Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Abbas & Hasan Ali are capable of wrecking havoc on swing friendly pitches. Their only worry is the injury to star batsman Babar Azam who was injured during 1st test. At the moment Pakistan is looking in a better position to win the series. England has to do really well to stop the visitors from taking the series away.
