That's Dubai to do it for Pakistan...but only just - Cricket World TV

Pakistan left it late to beat England by 178 runs in the second Test in Dubai, and our latest cricket news video reviews the action after they moved into an unassailable 1-0 series lead.

Set an unlikely 491 to win, England resumed day five on 130 for three and Pakistan had less than five overs left when they finally dismissed last man Adil Rashid for a valiant 61.

England came so close to fashioning an unlikely result - much like they had in Abu Dhabi - but in the end they were left frustrated.

Wahab Riaz took home the man-of-the-match award while Yasir Shah, back in the side following his back injury, took the final wicket.

Centuries for Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan also helped set victory for Pakistan and although Alastair Cook, Joe Root and Rashid stood firm for England, it wasn't enough.

They now have to win in Sharjah, venue for the third and final Test, to get anything out of the series and Pakistan know they can't be beaten.
