England batsmen Joe Root concedes that the visitors "weren't good enough" as they lost their last seven wickets for just 36 runs to help Pakistan to a dominant position at the end of day three of the second Test in Dubai.
Pakistan quick bowler Wahab Riaz "got the ball to reverse" as the hosts "bowled really well" in creating a 136 first-innings lead, says Root.
Veteran batsmen Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq ended the day with an unbeaten partnership of 139, leaving the hosts 358 runs ahead with seven wickets remaining.
