Pakistan declare at 523-8 in first Test against England

Pakistan declared their first innings at 523-8 after Shoaib Malik was out for 245 on the second day of the first Test against England in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Malik’s career-best knock ended when he was caught at mid-wicket off paceman Ben Stokes soon after tea, hitting 24 boundaries and four sixes as Pakistan dominated the England bowling on a placid Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch.

Asad Shafiq made 107, his ninth Test century.

Stokes was the pick of England bowlers with 4-57 while James Anderson finished with 2-42.
