Pakistan still struggles

Kevin Pietersen's wait for another Test century continued on Saturday but his 80 helped England to remain on top. Pakistan were 19/1 in their second innings, needing 160 runs to make England bat again on the second day of the second Test. Pietersen's innings was the milestone of England's 251 that made a first innings lead of 179. Pakistan Saeed Ajmal took 5 wickets for 82 runs in 26 overs. Butt had scored just 16 runs in 4 innings this series. Imran Farhat was 10 not out and Azhar Ali 5 not out.
