England fight back to remove Pakistan for 378 in morning session in Dubai

England fight back to remove Pakistan for 378 in the morning session on day two of the second Test in Dubai.

England have fought back against Pakistan to claim six wickets and end their opponents' innings during the morning session on day two of the second Test in Dubai.

Stuart Broad, Adil Rashid and Mark Wood snatched wickets, while Moeen Ali took his 50th Test wicket with a double haul to leave Pakistan all out for 378.

At the start of play, Pakistan were in command thanks to a 104-run partnership between Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq, but England had a bright start when Broad dismantled Misbah in the first over.

The batsman, who hit 102 runs off 197 balls, was given out lbw when Broad's delivery hit the knee, and it was a perfect start for the bowler as he kicked off the day with a wicket maiden.

Pakistan were able to recover as Shafiq pulled up his 50 with a four through the slips off Wood, and James Anderson was issued with two warnings for running on the pitch, meaning that a third would prevent him from bowling again in the innings.

After a spell of Pakistan dominance, Sarfraz Ahmed (32) was caught out by Anderson after sending a high ball to mid-on off the bowling of Ali, who claimed a second wicket of the day two overs later.

Wahab Riaz (6) went for a six, but Anderson was at mid-on once again to catch, giving England the momentum for the first time in the Test.

Pakistan began to toil as Rashid forced Yasir Shah to edge to Ben Stokes at slip, and the batsman returned to the pavilion taking 16 runs off 17 deliveries.

Wood called an end to Pakistan's time at the crease when Shafiq was sent packing on 83 after sending the ball straight to midwicket, where Joe Root was placed to catch.

England will open their innings with the bat after lunch.
