Pak face follow-on

The umpires led the players off the field despite the ground's six floodlight towers shining down on the field. Pakistan trailed England's first innings total by 207 runs and needed eight more to avoid the follow-on. Umar Gul was on 30 along with Mohammad Asif, who is yet to score.

Paceman Steven Finn performed impressively with three for 20. The sold-out crowd witnessed 15 wickets for 170 runs in a pulsating day in which ball dominated bat.

England had earlier lost their last six wickets for 17 runs but still posted a competitive first-innings total of 354.
