England have set Pakistan a target of 355 runs, courtesy a century by in-form batter Harry Brook, in the second Test at the Multan Cricket Stadium.

The right-hander scored 108 runs in 149 balls with the help of 14 fours and a six.

The visitors were dismissed of 275 in their second innings with Abrar Ahmed claiming figures of 4-120. Debutant Abrar finished with a match haul of 11 wickets.

Earlier, spinner Jack Leach took 4 for 98 as Pakistan were bundled out for 202, giving England a 79-run first-innings lead and putting them in a strong position to take the Test series — their first in Pakistan in 17 years.

In the morning session of day two, Pakistan´s batters wasted a strong position after they resumed at 107-2 with skipper Babar Azam and Shakeel looking to build a solid lead.

But once Azam was bowled by fast bowler Ollie Robinson for 75 in the seventh over of the day, the innings collapsed with seven wickets falling for just 37 runs.
