Joe Roots career-best 254 and three late wickets for Chris Woakes put Pakistan firmly on the rack on day two of the second Test at Old Trafford. Marcus Smart Jersey . Root nailed a reverse sweep for four off Yasir Shah midway through the afternoon session to reach his second double-century in 44 Tests before powering on to propel England to 589-9 declared.By stumps Pakistan, 1-0 up in the series, had faltered to 57-4 as Woakes (3-18) found the edge of Mohammad Hafeezs bat - Root claiming his 50th Test catch - before snaffling a one-handed return catch to despatch Azhar Ali. Worse followed for the tourists as Younus Khan tickled Ben Stokes down the leg-side, Jonny Bairstow taking the catch, before nightwatchman Rahat Ali fended Woakes off to short leg. Watch a pick of the action from the second day of the second Test But for Woakes all-round exploits this was Roots day. His 406-ball knock, which featured 27 fours, surpassed his previous personal best of 200 not out, made against Sri Lanka at Lords in 2014, and is the third highest score for England against Pakistan, behind Denis Comptons 278 at Trent Bridge in 1954 and Alastair Cooks 263 in Abu Dhabi last winter.The 25-year-old is only the sixth batsman in 132 years to score a Test double century at Old Trafford and the first Englishman to do so since Ken Barrington in 1964.In all he shared three century partnerships - with Alastair Cook (185 stand), Woakes (103) and Bairstow (106) while Yasir, the worlds top-ranked Test bowler, finished with 1-213 from 54 overs.Woakes, who began the day on two not out in Englands 314-4, shrugged off an early blow on the forearm from Rahat to contribute 58 off 104 balls.The all-rounder proved a nightwatchman in name only as he drove with authority before upper-cutting Mohammad Amir over third man for his maiden six in Test cricket.Root enjoyed a life on 155 when Younus Khan failed to grasp a low edge of Yasir and Pakistans problems mounted when Amir was forced from the field with a leg injury.Just when it seemed the tourists would endure a wicket-less session, Woakes prodded a return catch to Yasir - the leg-spinner picking up his first wicket in his 39th over. Watch as Joe Root scores his second Test match double century against Pakistan at Old Trafford Stokes received a rousing welcome to the crease on his return to the side and enjoyed a slice of fortune when he top-edged an attempted sweep off Yasir on 25, the ball falling safely.But that luck ran out just nine runs later when Pakistan successfully reviewed a not out appeal for a catch down the leg-side, replays showing Stokes had gloved an attempted pull off Wahab Riaz (3-106).Bairstow also enjoyed a life on nine when Sarfaz Ahmed knocked a snick behind up in the air only to shell the chance after juggling the ball, much to Yasirs annoyance.The Yorkshireman made his fellow wicketkeeper pay with another energetic innings, his fifty coming up in decent time off 74 balls thanks to six boundaries.The declaration did not come when Root skied a catch to the diving Hafeez, Cook choosing to delay until the 153rd over of the innings when Bairstow miscued Wahab to mid-off - England closing on their second-highest total against Pakistan, behind the 598-9 declared made at Abu Dhabi in 2015.James Anderson, restored to Englands line-up after being overlooked for the defeat at Lords despite his desire to play, almost struck fourth ball but just failed to grab a dipping return catch offered by Shan Masood (30no).Instead it was Woakes, fresh from his maiden 10-wicket haul at the Home of Cricket, who made the first breakthrough on the stroke of drinks by finding Hafeezs edge with his sixth ball.The all-rounder improved his figures to 2-14 in his fourth over, leaping to grab a looping return catch one-handed as Azhar mis-hit a push to leg.With two drops to his name in the Test so far, Younus owed his side runs but couldnt deliver as he ran the ball off the face to Bairstow and once nightwatchman Rahat went, it fell to Misbah-ul-Haq (one not out) and Masood to see out the day.Watch highlights of day two on Sky Sports 1 from 8pm - then stay tuned for The Verdict on the same channel at 9pm. Live coverage of day three gets underway at 10.30am on Sky Sports 2. Gordon Hayward Jersey . LOUIS -- Julius Randle had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Aaron Harrison finished with 18 points and No. Red Auerbach Jersey . The Boston Celtics hadnt played since the All-Star break. So the Suns 100-94 victory over Boston Wednesday night was an uphill affair, with Phoenix relying on balance rather than its trademark high energy. . 22 because of a bruised foot and have added forward Sean Collins to the roster on emergency recall from Springfield of the AHL.DUBLIN, Ireland -- Brian ODriscoll will leave behind Ronan OGara and become Irelands most capped rugby player when he runs out against Scotland at Lansdowne Road in the Six Nations on Sunday. ODriscoll was picked for his 129th test in an Ireland jersey on Friday, but he wont continue his world record midfield partnership with Gordon DArcy. DArcy was laid low by a stomach bug at the start of the week and has recovered, but Luke Marshall edged him in training and will start. The only other question marks were the wingerrs, and with plenty of choices coach Joe Schmidt went with Andrew Trimble over Fergus McFadden for his first cap since last summer, and Dave Kearney for his first Six Nations start, alongside his brother Rob, the fullback. Boston Celtics Jerseys. Luke Fitzgerald was expected to start but injured his hip in training. As expected, Chris Henry has the No. 7 jersey with Sean OBrien out for four months after shoulder surgery, and scrumhalf Conor Murray starts in place of Eoin Reddan, who was ruled out with calf trouble.
