Pakistan close on day two of their first Test against England on 350-8, giving them a lead of 166 runs at Lord's.

Pakistan have opened up a 166-run lead against England at the end of day two of their first Test at Lord's.

After bowling out their opponents for 184 runs on Thursday, and then reaching 50-1, the Men in Blue pushed on to take control of proceedings.

Babar Azam, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq and Shadab Khan all reached the half-century mark, helping Pakistan to close on 350-8.

England had chances to restrict their opponents, only to drop three catches and miss another.

Ben Stokes did manage to take three wickets, but the batting of Azam, Ali, Shafiq and Khan, on top of some patient play from Haris Sohail (39) and Faheem Ashraf (37), leaves the hosts with it all to do if they are to end their losing streak.
