England's bowlers have made up for a dismal batting performance earlier in the second day of the first test against Pakistan, with the visitors now facing the prospect of having to follow on after their first innings.

The first session of the day saw England's tail end collapse in the face of Pakistan's bowling attack, ending the first innings at 354 all out. The last five batsmen only managed to score 11 runs between them and lost their wickets in less than six overs.

With such a collapse Pakistan looked to be in the driving seat at the end of the first session, but England's bowlers let loose on the visitors and in some cases took more wickets than they scored runs.

Salman Butt was the first Pakistani wicket to fall, scoring just one run before be caught out by Matthew Prior off a ball by James Anderson.

Anderson struck twice more bowling out Imran Farhat and again teaming up with Prior to take the wicket of Azhar Ali.

Steven Finn, who like Anderson failed to score a single run as a batsman in the England innings, also matched the tally of three wickets, claiming that of Umar Amin before the fall of Ali.

He then struck twice more against Umar Akmal and Kamran Akmal, who was out for a duck.

By tea Pakistan were 90/6 and trailed England by 264 runs. They need another 65 runs to avoid the possibility of being forced to bat again by England.
