Opener dr Taking wickets of Sibli and Zak Crowley, Axar Patel continued his superb form. Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj dismissed Joe Root and Johnny Bairstow. Washington Sundar took the crucial wicket of Ben Stokes, who recorded a half-century. England started the series with a landslide win but their confidence has risen in the last few matches as they have suffered heavy losses.
