    It shouldn't be beyond what remains to add another 100 runs.

  4. Goodbye!

    And with that, we're done for the day, too. We'll be back from 10:30 BST tomorrow.

    You can read Stephan's report here- and if you're of a footballing persuasion, our Champions League live is also in full swing.

    Until tomorrow...

    You have to think that with Abbas and Amir with the new ball it's going to be very difficult to survive but at least Buttler and Bess have fought and given everyone a glimmer of Sunday in the sunshine at Lord's.

    Ian: The Jos Buttler haters and doubters have gone quiet - he just proved he can bat for long periods, give him a chance, I think he should be wicketkeeeper so that Bairstow can go higher up the order.

    Clayton Hodges: Chuffed for Buttler, he's played a real test match innings there. Deserves his first Test century on the back of his partnership with the equally impressive Bess.

    The top order always seem to find ways of getting out and there is always a little collapse around the corner with this England team. Your top six has to be consistent and Joe Root is too good a player to get out for fifty.

    He was really fighting today because he was in no sort of rhythm. Malan is a concern for me, he does seem to hang back and there were too many dot balls. I just don't look with any kind of confidence at a partnership that is going to develop.

    There were signs of Joe Root finding some form again, too...

    Although Mohammad Abbas made sure his resurgence didn't last too long.

    I was never any good in the dressing room in these situations - bit of a cat on a hot tin roof.

  10. 'Like Joe Root had walked back out'

    England's Jos Buttler, speaking to Sky Sports: "We wanted to scrap hard and try and get ourselves back in the game.

    "With Dom Bess, it was like Joe Root walked back out, with his back foot punches and cover drives. He's got a great character and he really showed that.

    "I just wanted to be busy, They've bowled well all Test match and my mentality was to get off strike and get ones and twos where I could."

  11. 'Miracle if England get anything out of match'

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    England always seem to find themselves 100-5 and that's always a concern for the Test team. Stoneman went back to a ball he should have been forward to.

    I look at the top order, in white ball cricket they all know their roles. The Test top order I don't see any partnerships I look at with any confidence.

    Bess and Buttler timed the ball nicely and ran hard, I haven't seen that from the top order in a long time. If they get out out of this with anything it will be a miracle.

    First, it was Jos Buttler who reached his half-century - only his second in three years - as England slowly crept into the lead.

    This is nothing short of thrilling, just a lovely partnership. If you're a pessimist you can wonder what might have happened if Stokes had not played that shot and got out.

  14. Post update

    England are effectively 56-6 - but they've done well to even get to there after some of these dismissals...

    Jay Barnes: Do these players know how hard they make planning for fans? I mean, do we continue with the rain dance or abandon it? This is infuriating

    England have won a session. They have been dominated in all the other sessions and it has taken a 20-year-old on debut with Jos Buttler, who said it was like making his debut again. They played with great control.

  17. Post update

    These two haven't just stood there and blocked. They've played their shots when it's been appropriate, they've ran well and they've taken advantage of a Pakistan attack that is naturally tiring after two sessions in the field.

    Andrew S: I take it alllllll back... we do have some players who can play the measured thoughtful cricket required at Test level...

  19. Post update

    If England manage to get out of this - and that is still a huge if - then it's because of this partnership.

    The new ball isn't far away, though...
