    England do lose a lot of wickets late in the day. They don't see it through to stumps.

    But if they bat the whole day tomorrow, they win the Test match. Do not let Pakistan in by letting them win that first session.

  2. Highlights of day one

    Alastair Cook carried on England's fine start though, playing his customary cuts and flicks and even bringing out a delicious cover drive...

    Captain Joe Root looked in fine touch too, carving some wristy flicks to the boundary.

    Cook and Root took England to 100 for the loss of just one wicket.

    But Cook couldn't quite hang on until the close, miscuing a pull shot and gloving a short ball from Hasan behind.

    England closed on 106-2, trailing by 68 runs.

    Graham Thorpe has been around this week. I love Graham Thorpe, because of what he brings. He's got that steel and I don't think he would be scared of saying a few things to one or two players if he thought they weren't pulling their weight. The visual of Keaton Jennings today just looked right.

  4. Highlights of day one

    Despite a fine display with the ball, England's batting have plenty of questions to answer.

    Recalled opener Keaton Jennings showed promising signs he may have some of those solutions, defending well but being positive when he could...

    But he was undone by a decent delivery from Faheem, feathering an edge behind to Sarfraz...

    But the tourists fought back with an enterprising partnership between Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali, before the latter was undone by a canny piece of bowling and a good catch from Chris Woakes...

    Shadab carried on to bring up a fine half-century...

    ...before he holed out to give England debutant Sam Curran his maiden Test wicket.

    Pakistan were all out for 174 and play broke for tea.

    Stuart Broad on the work he's done on his bowling action: "It's a small thing - I've looked to place my index finger right on the seam and lock my wrist in a bit more.

    "My thumb is a bit more in control on the seam. I did a bit of research, talking to bowlers about how they do about things. Locking my wrist gives me the confidence to flick my wrist, and my shoulder alignment is key."

  7. Highlights of day one

    Broad's fellow opening bowler James Anderson struggled to find the right line and length in his opening spell.

    But he returned after the lunch break in vicious fashion, nipping out Sarfraz Ahmed and Faheem Ashraf in quick succession, while Broad picked up his third wicket in between.

    Pakistan were reeling at 79-7.

    I hope England realise we saw something different in them today. We want to see that on a regular basis. Last week, England looked like an amateur team, with some of the field settings and positions. Today, they had a slip cordon that looked solid. Everything about the operation out in the middle - yes, when you're getting wickets, it's easier - but that is the DNA of what England in the Test arena should be.

  9. 'Some criticism of me wasn't justified'

    England bowler Stuart Broad, who took 3-38, speaking to Sky Sports: "I don't think any of us expected it to nip or swing like it did. We're delighted with the pressure we built, we let a few boundaries slip by if we're being critical on ourselves but to get that many wickets in that time was brilliant.

    "I understand the criticism of me from the first Test, I like listening to pundits speak. A lot of it is justified, some of it is not. I didn't feel some of the flack that was coming my way was overly logical.

    "There was an angle of promoting own shows and own columns in that criticism but that's the way of the world. I know within myself I'm bowling well and creating chances and that wickets will come when it's my day."

  10. Highlights of day one

    Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first on what looked like a good batting deck.

    There was some cloud cover and it was humid early on though and a fired up Stuart Broad bowled a full length and found some dangerous swing.

    Imam ul-Haq successfully overturned when given out lbw but fell just four balls later, nicking off to Joe Root at third slip...

    And Broad soon had another, removing Azhar Ali for just two.

    Chris Woakes got in the action with two wickets of his own as Pakistan fell to 68-4 at lunch.

    Fantastic. This was a different England. I think it was a good toss to lose and it did more than we all expected. It felt like perfect batting conditions. England bowled better – they pitched the ball in the right areas and brought the batsmen forward.

    You could see in the warm-ups and in Joe Root's interview yesterday - it was different to what they showed at Lord's. From this position, they have to win the Test match. My question is, why does it take so much prodding for them to turn up?

  12. Post update

    Almost the ideal day for England, save for that dismissal of Alastair Cook late on.

    The hosts look rejuvenated compared to their struggles at Lord's.

    Stay tuned for recaps, highlights and reaction from day one of the second Test at Headingley...

    Those smiles sum up a good day for England. They've done everything right. Pakistan have fought back well but it's not quite landed for them. They didn't get the swing with the ball that they were looking for.

  14. Close of play - Eng 106-2

    Root 29, Bess 0

    Joe Root takes a single off the first to leave Dom Bess five balls to negotiate.

    And the nightwatchman does well, repelling everything that Hasan throws at him.

    Sarfraz Ahmed brings in three men round the bat for the final ball of the day - it's a bouncer and Bess calmly ducks under it.

    England get through to the close on 106-2, trailing Pakistan by 68 runs.

    Hasan Ali is on to bowl what should be the last over of the day...

  16. Eng 105-2

    Replays show that was indeed sliding down leg. Bess defends the last.

  17. Eng 105-2

    Joe Root is happy to take the single and trust Dom Bess on strike.

    Shadab sends down a wrong 'un into Bess' pad and there's a big appeal from around the bat.

    Nothing doing from the umpire though.

    I was really impressed with Dom Bess in the first Test. If he gets stuck in tonight and hangs around, he can really settle in tomorrow.
