England vs Pakistan Live Score, 2nd Test, Day 4 Live: Rain has washed out Day 4 of the second Test between England and Pakistan at Ageas Bowl. Stumps were called early with England on 7/1, trailing Pakistan by 229 runs. After bowling Pakistan out for 236, England lost opener Rory Burns in the first over of the innings to Shaheen Afridi. Earlier, the third day was completely washed out by rain, which has led to serious doubts about whether the 2nd Test between England and Pakistan would see any sort of result now. Today is the fourth day of the Test, and we are yet to get done with the first innings. Pakistan are stranded at 223/9 and it will be interesting to see if the weather gods permit any play today in Southampton. Fingers crossed for now.Follow live score and updates of England vs Pakistan 2nd Test Day 4:
