England & Pakistan will play their second test match from 13 August in Rose Bowl Southampton. As earlier announced England’s gem Ben Stokes will not be playing further test-series against Pakistan due to family reasons! Pakistan will aim to take advantage of Stokes’ absence to level the series against England as action shifts to Southampton.
In the first test match it would be unfair to say that Pakistan were the better team for the majority of the test match in Old Trafford. But England made a dramatic turnaround to maintain the recently developed habit of chasing down targets in the finial innings.
