After yet another day dominated by batsman, the opening test between Pakistan and England looks set to end in a draw, unless we see a dramatic collapse by either side on the final day.
England started the fourth day on 290/3. Captain Alistair Cook and Joe Root managed to bat out the morning session without any alarm. Root reached his half century off 83 balls, but more important was Alistair Cook reaching his double century off 395 balls, effectively leading from the front. Lunch was taken with England on 400/3 after 143 overs.
The afternoon session saw Pakistan chasing the ball as Cook and Root continued to slay the Pakistan bowling attack. They finally managed to pick up the first wicket of the day when Rahat Ali dismissed Root with his score on 85 off 143 balls. Bairstow joined Cook at the crease but failed to make use of the excellent batting conditions when he was trapped lbw by Wahab Riaz with his score on 8. Stokes and Cook took England safely through to the tea break with the score on 468/5.
The final session of the day saw England passing Pakistan first innings total as the track offered zero assistance to the bowlers. Alistair Cook went to 250 off 496 balls and finally succumbed to the bowling of Shoiab Malik with his score on 263. Ben Stokes reaching his fifty off 77balls, playing some attractive shots along the way, before becoming the second victim for Malik. Butler looked in a very aggressive mood with the bat, but was caught by Asad Shafiq off the bowling of Babar for a quick-fire 23.
The umpires took the players off the field for bad light, which effectively ended the days play with England on 569/8 in the 197th over. The score gives them a 46 runs lead with one days play remaining in the test match.
