WATCH: England v Pakistan Day 4 Highlights
England look impressive at Emirates Old Trafford
Alastair Cook’s men rounded on a comfortable Investec Test Match victory against Pakistan on Day 4 at Emirates Old Trafford.
After racking up an impressive runs total of 762 in both innings, England never really looked in any trouble against a Pakistan side that struggled to get going, with skipper Misbah-ul-Haq stating that Joe Root’s first innings score of 254 gave them a mountain to climb before their batsmen entered the field.
England declared their first innings before lunch on 173-1, leaving Pakistan with 565 to win - a win which would have been the highest run chase in Test Match history.
Excellent bowling by Lancashire’s Jimmy Anderson, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali helped England close in on another Test Match win in Manchester – with Pakistan all out for 234.
England now level the series 1-1 and will look to continue their impressive form at Emirates Old Trafford when they arrive at Edgbaston for the Third Investec Test Match.
