Reactions on Twitter: England pass Pakistan to win Second Test in Multan

Highlight Wood took four Pakistani wickets to give England a 26-run series victory in the second Test at Multan Cricket Stadium and take an unassailable 2–0 lead in the three-match series.

The fast bowler finished 4-65 as Pakistan were knocked out for 328 in the session after lunch on Day 4, with a challenging target of 355.

Wood, who missed the first Test at Rawalpindi due to a hip injury, turned the match in England’s favor with the wickets coming from well-arranged Mohammed Nawaz (45) and Saud Shakeel (94) in the space of just 12 balls.

Pakistan fell to 291-7 at lunch and after the break Agha Salman (20 not out) and Abraham Ahmad (17) did their best to get an improbable win for their side and keep the series alive. But James Anderson fired Ahmed, Wood cleaned up Zahid Mahmoed (0) and Oliver Robinson took the wicket of number eleven Mohammed Ali (0), cause for revelry in the Three Lions camp.

“We looked at the wicket and it was tough against slow bowling, but as the game progressed the cracks opened up and our players came into play,” said the winning captain Ben Stokes in the presentation after the game.

“The way Jimmy and Robbo bowl in the series and also our spinners, they are going to deliver more often than not [referring to himself not bowling in the second Test].”
