SOUTHAMPTON: (Web Desk) Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first in the second Test against England at Ageas Bowl in South Hampton.
Both the teams made changes to the squad with Fawad Alam coming in place of Shadab Khan to play his first Test since 2009.
England made two changes to the playing XI that won in Manchester with Zak Crawley coming in for Ben Stokes and Sam Curran replacing Jofra Archer.
England won the first Test in Manchester against Pakistan in dramatic fashion beating the hosts by three wickets.
Chasing a challenging target of 277, England lost five wickets for only 117 runs but Buttler and Woakes came to rescue and batted cautiously and confidently to add 139 runs for the sixth wicket partnership.
This was a remarkable achievement as only for the third time a team chased more than 200 to win in the fourth innings of a Test at Old Trafford, with England making 294-4 against New Zealand in 2008 and 231-3 against the West Indies at the Manchester ground in 2004.
Buttler made 75 from 101 balls with seven fours and a six while Woakes remained not out on 84. His 120-ball innings was laced with ten boundaries.
