England's cricketers in their death throes (not literally)

In a sense, it makes for perfect MONDAY listening.
ENGLAND'S cricketers are in their death throes (not literally, mind you) against PAKISTAN -- currently 90 runs behind with a mere two wickets remaining.
The score stands Pakistan (99 & 365) and England (141 & 236-8).
Barring a miracle, England will make dubious history. The last team dismissed for a double-figure score in the first innings of a Test match to go on to win England themselves back in 1907 at Headingley, when they were all out for 76 at the start before defeating South Africa.
Pakistan have earned the victory this week, with bowlers such as Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal taking bushels of wickets and Azhar Ali scoring 157 during an epic second innings.
There goes another wicket. Sad days indeed.
