Defeat from the jaws... Do we start discussing what changes should be made now?

Absolutely decimated - fair dos to Pakistan. Easily the best bowling attack we've faced in a long time. We've not been good enough at all to deal with their strengths.

Right, no doubt the England camp will come out with the "don't panic" rhetoric and then decide to change the bowlers again for the 3rd Test. I can't see how Morgan can retain his place now? At least Bell and KP can claim experience and recent form but if Ravi doesn't get a game now he might as well not be involved in the Test set up. I think if he does get a go he should bat ahead of KP and Bell because he'll then have the benefit of not coming out in the middle of a major collapse.

I thought the spin bowling machine Merlyn was meant to be our cure to these woes? Anyone who isn't a bog standard right handed off spinner just bamboozles us.

Cook/Strauss did a dismal job in getting the innings off to the right start and we just never never looked like chasing anything.

EDIT: outside of Strauss/Prior, we scored 13/8

Woeful stuff. Some of the batsman need a good look at themselves as they are just not good enough at this level and yes KP is one of those players.

That is the series lost now

Pitiful stuff and the only other batsman on the tour is Bopara!!!! Even so he must play in the next match in place of the woeful Morgan who l like as a player but looks totally out of his depth. Ok so do all the other batsmen but at least they have some history of making good scores.

Well played to Pakistan who have thoroughly deserved to win both matches

THIRD TEST - DAY 1

Pakistan have won the toss and will have a bat.

The England team is unchanged.

Will DRS kick in for Pakistan -- Dead Rubber Syndrome? I am inclined to doubt it.
