England A 298-6 dec and 10-2 Patron's XI 187-9 dec

Only 48 hours after arriving in Pakistan to act as cover for the injury- troubled Mike Smith, Tim Munton took 5 for 54 for England A in Lahore yesterday in his first bowl for three months.

Munton quickly settled into an impressive rhythm and reduced the Patron's XI to 48 for 6 with a spell of four wickets for three runs in 13 balls. Smith managed 12 overs but said he still does not feel comfortable with his rib cartilage problem.

(Second day of three; England A won toss)
