Pakistan battle back after Bell tolls

india Updated: Aug 06, 2006 11:50 IST

England batsman Ian Bell scored his third century in consecutive tests before Pakistan battled back in fine style on the second day of the third test at Headingley on Saturday.

The touring side, replying to England's first innings of 515, closed on 202 for two, Mohammad Yousuf (91 not out) and Younis Khan (64 not out) looking increasingly entrenched after putting on a stand of 166.

England lead the four-match series 1-0.

Bell's performance made him the first England player to score a trio of hundreds in consecutive tests in the same home series since Allan Lamb against West Indies in 1984.
