I followed the BBC Live Reporting on the web avidly on the last day until Woakes and Bairstow seemed to be dodging bullets on a ball by ball basis. That said, it was great to see them putting up a fight. I finally pulled the plug at half past midnight my time. But after three hours of sleep dreaming about really dodging bullets, too much Cheddar before bed, I couldn’t resist a peak.
We had not managed to take it into the fifth and final day. Oh well. But a game that shows just how alive and well Test Cricket is. Perhaps one fine day, Pakistan will be able to host again in their own country. Looking forward to following the next one in Old Trafford.
