England posted 328, and have Pakistan one down.
West Indies v India was a washout on Day 3 making a draw a very likely outcome now.
World #1 beckons, doesn’t it?
We decided not to do a Day 1 report so that Andy’s excellent post on over rates could be highlighted a day after the word dilatory barely does justice to the pace of the overs bowled. I think we’ll come back to this after the series finishes, so if you haven’t done so already, read Andy’s post.
Comments on Day 2, below. Hopefully this post doesn’t appear until 10 am on Friday, but you never can trust WordPress!
