England beats Pakistan in 2nd test, levels series 1-1
MANCHESTER, England (AP) England dismissed Pakistan for 234 on Monday to win the second test by 330 runs with a day to spare and level the four-match series 1-1.
Pakistan's batting again crumbled with the second innings ending after tea as the tourists chased an unlikely record target of 565.
Chris Woakes grabbed 3-41 to stretch his wicket tally to 18 in two test matches while James Anderson and off-spinner Moeen Ali also picked up three wickets each.
Asad Shafiq top-scored with 39 but Pakistan was vulnerable against impeccable seam bowling, spiced up with the return of Anderson, who missed England's 75-run defeat at Lord's in the first test.
Earlier, captain Alastair Cook (76) and Joe Root (71) smashed rapid unbeaten half centuries before England declared its second innings at 173-1.
