England complete rout of Pakistan to level series

London: England surged to victory over Pakistan by an innings and 55 runs to win the second Test and draw the series 1-1.

Jos Buttler displayed his full range of strokeplay in a sparkling 80 not out to take England to 363 - a 189-run lead.

And after Pakistan were reduced to 42-3, it never seemed likely that the game would reach day four at Headingley.

Off-spinner Dom Bess claimed his maiden Test wicket in returning 3-33, while Stuart Broad took 3-28 as Pakistan were 134 all out in their second innings.

It was a limp capitulation by the tourists, who failed to get anywhere near the performance of their nine-wicket win at Lord's.

Brief scores:
England 363 (Buttler 80*) beat Pakistan 174 (Shadab 56, Broad 3-38) and 134 (Bess 3-33, Broad 3-28) by an innings and 55 runs

For England, this was an ideal response to an awful display in London and ends a run of eight Tests without a win.

Their challenge now is to replicate this when they meet India over a five-Test series that begins in August.

Before then, they enter a period of limited-overs cricket against India and Australia after playing a one-day international against Scotland in Edinburgh on 10 June.
