England v Pakistan: Boycott, Swann & Vaughan give their verdict

Geoffrey Boycott, Graeme Swann and Michael Vaughan give their verdict on England's second Test defeat by Pakistan and explain how they think the tourists can improve in time for the final Test in Sharjah on 1 November.

England, who lost by 178 runs, resumed on 130-3 and needed to survive the final day in Dubai to earn a draw. They were bowled out for 312 with only 6.3 overs remaining.

The consensus among the former England players is that Jos Buttler needs a break from the side and that James Taylor should come in, with Vaughan suggesting Jonny Bairstow can take over wicketkeeping duties.
