    I don't understand why Root needs to go to number three. He was happy at four and I thought Vince was a good player.

    Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali: "We had a plan because the pitch was fresh and had moisture so it was to bowl full and straight."

    Dom Bess, his defensive shots looked good, some said like Geoff Boycott. His attacking shots need a bit of work.

  9. 'No need for bouncers'

    Pakistan's Hasan Ali: "There was no need for bouncers because we were getting a lot of help from the pitch for bowling full and straight. Getting experience of playing in England in the Champions Trophy was a good thing for us."

    Dawid Malan is hanging back, Bairstow threw his hands at the ball. Yes it swung, but you expect swing in a Test match. I'm not going to talk about the tail because it was not down to them. It was 280 par, certainly not 184. It's becoming too much like deja vu.

  12. 'Things sneak into your game'

    More from England opener Alastair Cook: "After New Zealand where I couldn't get my weight back into the ball, you work very hard to correct that.

    "Things sneak in you don't want to but I've gone away to work on being a bit more side on. It was good today, that first drive gave me a lot of confidence.

    On today's game: "It was a wicket where if you missed your length short or full you got punished, but three of us got bowled with a bit of movement so there was clearly something in there."

    There were at least three poor England shots. Buttler, Stoneman, Root. Three of your top seven.

  14. Test cricket still 'excites' Cook

    England opener Alastair Cook, who made 70 in his 153rd consecutive Test, on Sky Sports: "I was really excited when I turned up on Monday. Just walking out down there when there's no-one in the crowd, it is a really special place."

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    Is positivity hitting a four or ending the day on 230-6 when you have grafted it out? Pakistan's bowling and slip catching was outstanding, England now have to win every day.

  16. 'Probably 60 or 70 short'

    England opener Alastair Cook on Sky Sports: "We're behind a little bit. Pakistan have had the better day.

    "We were probably 60 or 70 short on that wicket. But with a five-day Test match you have a chance to come back. 50-1 can very quickly become 80-4."

    On Joe Root's decision to bat first: "It was a really tricky one. The pitch is dry, the forecast is it's going to get warmer, but there is live grass on it."

  17. If England were a type of food...

    #bbccricket

    Chris Painter: England are a tequila slammer. Plenty of firepower, but always over way too quickly and usually leave you with a headache and a bad mood the next day.

    Adam Steedman Thake: If England were a type of food: A breakfast kebab. You start off thinking it’ll be a great idea, but by about 11:30 you feel a bit sick.

    David May: That roast potato that falls on the floor and mum sticks on dad's plate.

    Cook played beautifully, made the Pakistan bowlers bowl to him and it was almost a real basic way of batting, which is how you need to play on a pitch like this.

  19. Post update

    The plus side for England?

    Alastair Cook was in good nick and I thought Ben Stokes' innings was a positive one. But that collapse... 5-16 in the blink of an eye.
