England closed out the Test series against Pakistan by winning the second Test match in Multan on Monday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead. Mark Wood was the star for the visitors as he took 4 crucial wickets in the second innings as Ben Stokes’ side beat the hosts by 26 runs in a thrilling finish. The match was set up for Pakistan by debutant leg spinner Abrar Ahmed, who took 11 wickets in the two innings, but the batters were unable to rise to the challenge.

Pakistan’s second defeat in the series has left them in sixth place, while England’s stellar run under Ben Stokes has lifted them to fifth. India remains in fourth place in the ranking, behind Australia, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
