So, this first Test draws to a close, quite literally, with England failing to make the breakthroughs they needed and Pakistan deciding they weren't interested in chasing their mammoth target. Thanks for joining us; we've enjoyed bringing the commentary to you, hope you've had fun. Tune in again next Thursday when the series resumes at Old Trafford and until then, it's goodbye!

71.6
