Lovely knock from Buttler.

Shame Broad just couldn't resist hooking.

All over. Total reverse almost of the first test.

Really good performances from the bowlers and Buttler.

Disappointed there's no deciding test, been played in a really good spirit.

Should’ve been a 3 test series at least. Guess the ECB were expecting 2-0 and worried about a poorly-attended 3rd test. Knobbers.

Will the real England cricket team please stand up.

Good knock from Buttler - two scores of fifty plus and I can see him picking up this test lark. He was in pretty good form in the IPL and appears to be adapting to the test side. Glad that Bess got a couple of wickets too.

No test cricket now for England until August which probably means that the momentum gained from this test will vanish and it'll be total potluck as to how they perform in the next test.

Barmy isn't it? We could have had another nice deciding match in mid June.

A nothing match against the sweatys, then the cheats.....sorry Aussies in a ODI series is mouth watering. A few players missing for them. I want a whitewash. Ok, a whitewash in ODI is not the same as The Ashes, but it'll do for me.

Yeah, a good performance from England at last, but the eternal pessimist in me is still expecting it to come out that the Pakistanis were spot fixing again. :P

This has been terrible from us! Fair play to the sweaties as they’re batting well but we’ve not helped ourselves. Still small boundaries and a good pitch, you’d like to think our batting attack should make light work of it.
