England in great position - Bell

England batsman Ian Bell says the tourists are in a "great position" after ending day two of the third Test against Pakistan in Sharjah 12 runs behind the hosts for the loss of only four first-innings wickets.

The Warwickshire player praises the "busy" James Taylor, who finished unbeaten on 74 and whose unbroken partnership of 83 with wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow means England are in the ascendancy.

England trail the three-match series 1-0 after defeat in the second Test in Dubai.
