Pakistan vs England 2nd Test Live Streaming Info: Cricket Live Score, Match Preview – PAK vs ENG – 22nd July 2016: After the exciting first test match of the 4 test match series of Pakistan against England it’s time for test match the second great encounter between these two teams. The first test match was full of excitement as both the teams played very well but Pakistan was just a bit too good for the England team.
The hosts lacked a lot in their batting attack and only Chris Woakes was the one who bowled very well in the first test match and now they will be looking to make some changes in the team and get some experienced players like James Anderson in the team for the second match.
The heat of the second test match is even higher because England will be looking to take the revenge of loss that they suffered in the first match and their captain Alastair cook also did not like the celebration that they did after winning the match so the England team is surely going to be on its tips in this second test match and they will be looking to level the series by winning this match.
England will have to look into the matter that their late middle order batsmen are not able to bat for long and get out early which is a very big cause of concern for the captain and he will be looking to make some changes in the batting department so that their batting does not disappoint them in the second test match.
