Pakistan’s Batting Collapsed, All out for 202

On day two of the second Test in Multan, left-arm spinner Jack Leach took three crucial wickets to ignite a Pakistani collapse, reducing the hosts’ innings to 202 on Saturday.

Leach dismissed Saud Shakeel (63), Mohammad Rizwan (10), and Mohammad Nawaz (11) on a turning Multan Stadium pitch, leaving England with a 79-run lead and a golden opportunity to secure an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Pakistan lost their last seven wickets for 37 runs after captain Babar Azam was dismissed for 75, with Leach assisted by Joe Root (2-23) and Mark Wood (2-40).

Leach led the England attack with figures of 4-98, having dismissed Abdullah Shafique on Friday, and also reached a landmark 100 wickets in his 31st Test.
