England got a taste of their own medicine in the first Test when Pakistani pacers delivered a raging bowling performance. On the other side, English pacers lacked the same fire when their time came, resulting in the home side losing the Lord's Test.

Former English skipper Michael Vaughan had lashed out at Stuart Broad for his poor show in the opening match and went on to say he should be dropped from the side. Broad picked just one wicket in the whole game making it tough for England to put up a fight.

Broad came back strong in the next game and scalped 3 wickets. He not only replied with the ball but with the words too. He responded by saying the criticism "lacked logic" and claimed that Vaughan had not "got much insight into the changing room".

Though the 43-year-old commentator persisted with his words. "My concern is that he is speaking like that after one good day. You have got to be careful when you choose a time to come out and attack like Stuart did last night. England are still 68 runs behind Pakistan. They haven't won this Test match yet. The comments last night were geared as though England had won the game. He's a senior member of the team and I don't think it was the right time to plan that attack," he told BBC.

England is in a dominating position in the second Test. At the end of second day's play, the hosts scored 302/7 and added a healthy lead of 128 runs. Earlier in the game, they had got the visiting team bowled out on just 174.
