  1. Goodbye!

    Which way is this one going then? Either way it's been a cracker.

    Steph's report is here and there will be a Test Match Special podcast available very shortly.

    And there's Today at the Test, available on iPlayer, so you can catch up on anything you've missed.

    We'll be back tomorrow. Until then!

    England have Ben Stokes, a player who can change the game. Ollie Pope, Joe Root, they have the players. But with scoreboard pressure, if Pakistan can get 20 or 25 runs, they will be happy.

  3. 'Not your typical English wicket'

    England batsman Ollie Pope speaking to TMS: "The bowling went as well as it could. We bowled nicely and backed up with the field. The wicket has offered a little bit for both seam and spin.

    "It's not your typical English wicket. It spun from the get go and bounced a little bit as well. We're going to have to find ways to cope with that.

    "Pakistan bowlers have a little bit of everything; Abass' skills, the pace of Naseem and Shaheen. With any new series, once you get used to their style and bowling things will get easier.

    "Buttler played nicely and showing great signs against WI, he's batting nicely. It's not easy standing up and keeping on that wicket, with that extra spin and bounce. With those nicks sometimes it's a matter of whether they'll stick or not. That's keeping, you need a bit of luck."

    First time ever I have looked down and thought Jimmy looks old. He just had one of those days, I hope, and that he can come back from that.

    It was important for England to get Babar Azam. Mohammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan played well but England have bowled very well. But they gave a bit of a chance by bowling the spinner a bit too much.

    England were under the cosh but they fought back admirably with the ball, claiming seven Pakistan wickets in the evening session.

  7. 'We will get an ending tomorrow'

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    The bowling this week has been good, they fought hard with the bat, especially Pope and Butler this morning. They showed the temperament and technique for Test cricket.

    But dropped catches, fumbles in the field, there's been a few. The catching and fielding may let them down.

    I think we'll get an ending tomorrow one way or another.

  8. Post update

    There was some late entertainment from Stuart Broad - when isn't there? - but ultimately England were dismissed for 219, trailing Pakistan by 107 runs.

    Mohammad Abbas was particularly skillful with the old ball - here's how he manages it.

    It's been a really good Test to watch. Mainly Pakistan have been on top but England have fought back in that session.

    Batting on this wicket last will not be easy at all. The 250 odd chase will take some effort. You look at Headingley last year, that was a different pitch, it quietened down. I don't think this one will, it will spin.

  11. Post update

    Let's recap, shall we?

    It was not an easy morning or afternoon for England, who lost Ollie Pope in the first session before Yasir Shah spun the innings on its head.

    This is beautifully set up. The way the pitch is playing, and with the Pakistan attack, they are favourites tomorrow. But England have given themselves a chance.

  13. BBC coverage

    Stick BBC Two on right now for Today at the Test.

    You know you want to. It's been a corker.

  14. Close of play

    Pak 137-8

    And that is your lot!

    Pakistan have a lead of 244 but England are clinging on to this Test match.

  15. Pak 137-8

    Mohammad Abbas survives.

    It's paid off and it's down to Ben Stokes. He's the one driving this, telling the captain that he wants the ball and wants to win the game. It's great to have a player in your team who is like this. Let's hope it doesn't have any ramifications on his fitness for the next two Tests.

  18. Post update

    This has been an excellent showing from England.

    Ben Stokes has taken a wicket. He was always going to do it.

  20. WICKET

    Shaheen c Burns b Stokes 2 (Pak 137-8)

    Too good for poor Shaheen Afridi.

    He tries to duck a bumper from Ben Stokes but leaves his bat dangling in the air like a periscope. The ball hits the shoulder of the bat, maybe a touch of glove, and Rory Burns tears in from gully to take the catch.
