Pakistan are facing England in the second Test of their three-match series in Southampton. 

The visitors will need to register a positive result to stay alive in the series after a disappointing performance in the Manchester Test. 

Perhaps the most important news from the Rose Bowl was at the toss when middle-order batsman Fawad Alam was included in the Pakistan team in place of all-rounder Shadab Khan.

The Karachi-born is representing the national team for the first time in the last 11 years. 

Samaa Sports takes a look at how drastically things have changed between Alam’s third and fourth Test appearance for Pakistan.
