England hammer Pakistan to win second Test and square series

LEEDS, United Kingdom, June 3, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – England thrashed Pakistan by an innings and 55 runs to win the second Test at Headingley on Sunday.

Victory, completed inside three days, saw England level the two-match series at 1-1 after Pakistan won the first Test at Lord’s by nine wickets.

It was also England’s first victory in a Test match since they beat the West Indies at Lord’s in September, with the side having endured a winless run of six defeats in eight Tests coming into this fixture.

By sharing the spoils in this short campaign, England also avoided a third successive series defeat after reverses in Australia and New Zealand.
