Yasir Shah takes 3 wicket as England reduces to 153-4

LONDON: Leg-spinner Yasir Shah took three wickets to make amends for Pakistan's two dropped catches of Alastair Cook as England reached 153-4 at tea Friday on the second day of the first cricket test.

Cook had lucky escapes on 22 and 55 off Mohammad Amir, returning after a five-year ban for spot-fixing, and was batting on 75.
