    Pakistan 119 all out ( bet they're not happy )England 168/2 ( smiles all round )In the words of Michael Holding yesterday, 'England could bat until Monday', I'm hoping that isn't the plan, allowing Pakistan a couple of sessions to negotiate

    LOL, certainly seem to be lacking last years killer instinct when it came to finishing things off.

    Michael Vaughn is the key IMO. Best England captain since Brearley

    Exactly, the captain needs to throw caution to the wind sometimes in order to get a result. England at the moment definately look the better team at the moment and with the current lead should be throwing the bat about a bit in order to rack up the runs nice 'n' quick.

    Declare at 400 and get them back in sharpish. Looked like a bowling wicket to me but clearly England are doing OK. About bleeding time they played well.

    Bell's been a different player since he got back in the test side. Played very well again today. Bit of a worry over Harmison though.Surely even England can't fuck this up with 3 days to play? Can they?

    What exactly is this test for, is it a friendly?

    Harmison & Panesar played like Gods. Lets just hope we can get a good run of form going in the run up to the Ashes.

    Harmison played really well - no sympathy or emotion for the batting team - but only when it mattered, if he hit them he always asked if they were ok (but never apologised!!!!)

    Good all round performance, some nice batting followed up with great bowling. Pakistan are generally no muppets, so a great victory.
