Pakistan vs England 2nd Test Live Today from Ageas Bowl, Southampton on Thursday, 13 August – Monday, 17 August, 11 am local time.
Pakistan will hope to take advantage of Ben Stokes’ absence to end the series against England when action moves to Southampton.
It wouldn’t be unfair to say that Pakistan was the better side for much of the first friendly in Manchester. Well behind the eight balls on day five, England made a dramatic turn to maintain a recently developed habit of pursuing daunting goals in the final innings.

A bad day cost Pakistan the test and they will beware of the mistakes they made at Old Trafford when the second test beckons in Southampton.
England will have to do without Ben Stokes, who will miss the series for family reasons and will have to adjust his line-up accordingly. Zak Crawley, who was impressive against the West Indies, was able to return to the starting line-up.
England will also try to spin their Seam Bowlers like they did in the West Indies series. This could lead to James Anderson, who rejected retirement rumors earlier this week, sitting outside and making a debut for Ollie Robinson, who was called into the bladder. Jofra Archer could also take a break. Capable of covering up Ben Stokes, Sam Curran could play a role in England’s plans if it does.
Pakistan, on the other hand, had success with Shadab Khan in seventh place on the strike front, but on a fourth day the leg spinner could not quite make the breakthroughs. However, it is likely that they will stay with him, though there is a chance to debut veteran all-rounder Kashif Bhatti.
Visitors are otherwise likely to stay the same unless they want to turn one of their seafarers. Wahab Riaz and Sohail Khan are available as substitute pacemakers in the squad.
What Happened Last Time?
The win at Old Trafford in Manchester was only the third time England had averted defeat in the last 11 attempts in the first game of a Test series. They become significantly stronger as the series progresses. In 2016 and 2018 England lost the first Test against Pakistan but won the second Test vigorously – with 330 runs (2016) and with innings and 55 runs (2018) – both times.
This is the first time England and Pakistan face each other in Southampton. England have a mixed record, with two wins, one draw and one loss. They lost their last game, the first in the West Indies series, at the venue.
James Anderson: “For the first time in probably 10 years I got a little emotional on the field. I was a little frustrated and let it come to me a little. It reminded me of my early days playing when you got frustrated and a bit If you’re a little angry, you keep trying to roll faster and it doesn’t help. “
Misbah ul Haq: Pakistani head coach: “We should remember that we were at the top until the last session of the game and we played very good cricket. Sure, we have to improve by 10 to 15 percent and deal with pressure.” a little better, but we shouldn’t be down mentally. “
