To be fair he is generally pretty good standing back (though that one was a particularly fine grab !)

His problem is keeping to the spinner . Still he caught a good one from Bess earlier so I think Soul can forget about his Foakes dream for a while...

Not easy, but felt Burns should have grabbed that one. Keeps Pakistan's innings ticking that little while longer.

And that one from Crawley was much easier. Two drops in one over!

Burns not having a great match. Probably should have caught that , though it went fast.

Nearly 598 for Jimmy...

Oh blimey ! Now Crawley drops Abbas ! Jimmy will explode ...

Only 27 overs bowled in 130 minutes from England in this session, so still 20 overs left but with no chance of getting them in.

Azhar Ali playing a few shots now. 124 to avoid the follow-on. Whistle

That England slip cordon still has a few holes , it seems. The fast bowlers don't need those at the end of a tiring day.

Not sure how long the light will hold so getting these last two wickets is fairly urgent . Might have to bowl them...

A third drop?! The easiest of the lot...but Abbas run-out at the other end.

Pretty decent throw that.

Think I know how Jimmy must be feeling . I once had four dropped off me in one eight ball over (yes , a long time ago ) and it's a cross between laughing your head off or slashing your wrists Smile

At least the drops don't look like costing England too much.

Still don't know how Broad managed to drop that dolly...it was Denly-esque ...

Sibley catches one. Anderson gets a deserved five-for. Azhar remains undefeated.

Hopefully Root knows what the weather's doing and will enforce the follow-on! A poor over rate has cost England about half a dozen overs, however.

Theres only been 13 overs with it and Broad/Anderson were used sparingly in the afternoon. They should be fine to bowl whats a very short burst tonight then be fresh tomorrow.

Two wickets tonight would be grand.

The light prevents any more play today.

Draw probably favourite, but the forecast might clear up a little. England probably need another 90 overs to win this test, currently it looks unlikely we'll get that much play.

Anti climax for the finish as the light is deemed too dull to start ...

Guess they start at 10-30 Monday ?

Whether England can dismiss them in whatever overs they get out of the nominal 196 we shall find out eventually.

No, they're not starting at 10:30 tomorrow because of the poor forecast, according to Nasser on Sky. They'll be trying to play tomorrow until 19:30 instead.

Surely you aim for a 10.30 start and if it doesn't happen then you start later.

That would be sensible, but it seems the decision on when to start has to be taken the previous day.

Yeah the thing I didnt realise with that rule was that the "extra" half hour gets taken off the end if its used early. Frustrating today as we ended up losing that last half hour to bad light. Does look like the worst of the weather tomorrow will be early, so maybe another day quite similar to this one. Tuesday still is at best play after tea, a very slight improvement but could still be a washout.

Dont hold out much hope for England really, gonna take some more from Archer Bess and Woakes even if Anderson and Broad continue their double act with the new ball. At least they did enforce the follow on.

Yes it looks like a tough task for England to bowl Pakistan out in less than a day , going on yesterday's play.
However it is not impossible that the back up bowlers will play a bit more of a role second time around. Archer was pretty lively - if not accurate enough - and might do better tomorrow . Woakes improved a lot in his final spell and didn't have a lot of luck (except for the important strangle of Rizwan) and Bess , although he wasn't consistent , induced a few errors that might on another day have brought results.
It could be - if , say , six or seven wickets were taken on Monday - we
might all be sitting around anxiously waiting in hope for the rain to stop for most of Tuesday...a somewhat depressing thought actually!

Might have to get another bottle of Scotch in just in case...

Apparently raining right now in Southampton so the early start wouldn't have been a thing anyway, and probably will start late and as with the previous days be on off a bit. On a more positive note the forecast for tomorrow afternoon is improved again so more likely than not we should be able to get a worthwhile amount of play in if the light holds.

If we can get in 80 overs or so between the two days and England hold their chances and get the rub of umpires calls they should win. Trying to be positive the rain breaks give a chance for the bowlers to rest up and the Pakistan players to get nervous. Bowling in the high winds tomorrow wont be easy though.

Forecast has improved a little, but not much. Looks like 2-3 hours of play might be possible tomorrow, light permitting. So if we can get in 60 overs+ today, there might just be a chance.

Even with that in mind, however, it's still a tough pitch to get wickets on as we saw yesterday. Going to need at least three in the opening 15 overs; the new ball is so crucial.

Agree about the need for early breaks... Guess that always applies to a point ; but especially on this surface with time of the essence.

Concern might be how well Jimmy in particular comes up after a fair bit of work yesterday. I fancy Woakes - and Broad to a point - were already showing some signs of weariness after four Tests in a row. Don't think we can assume Archer and Bess will be able to bowl them out on their own Smile

Clutching the same shoulder he dislocated previously as well. Hopefully it's not the same injury again. From personal experience I'd say that once your shoulder pops out once it never really feels as strong again though. Fingers Crossed

Yes, fatigue (both physical and mental) will be a big concern, probably another reason to back the draw. Generally why teams don't enforce the follow-on these days, but this one has of course been forced by the likely adverse weather.

If Collingwood drops one, we know the end times are near.

England already wanting the ball changed, which isn't a good sign. No dice from the umpires.

Nine overs gone for no result. Bit early to start worrying but that isn't the best start to the day.
All those drops might be adding up to suck a bit of life out of the team? Important they get something soon to make sure things don't get too flat...but the early signs aren't what I was hoping for.

Double change. Time for Woakes and Archer to do some work...
