England, in a bid to win next year s World Cup on home soil, have radically altered their domestic fixture schedule in recent times.
"We wanted to scrap hard, and try and get ourselves back in the game", said Buttler, whose 130-ball innings has been unusually measured and mostly risk-free for a player who arrived straight from the Indian Premier League.
But that proved no more than a token gesture of resistance, as opener Imam-ul-Haq (18 not out) and Haris Sohail - who finished up unbeaten 39 - eased their team to victory, the latter casually slogging full tosses from debutant spinner Dom Bess for six and then four to end proceedings.
Now what? How steel and aluminum tariffs will impact Canada
Ildefonso Guajardo pointed out in an interview today that Mexico actually buys more USA steel than it exports to that country. European Union exports potentially subject to U.S. duties are worth 6.4 billion euros.
The tourists' batting was more patient, their bowling more incisive and their fielding superior - England dropped five catches in the Pakistan first innings.
Buttler added only a single to his overnight score to reach 67 before he was pinned lbw by Mohammad Abbas, with the decision upheld on review to leave England 236 for seven. "We continually deliver that type of message and are continually working on it in the nets". England were 179 runs behind on first innings after Pakistan were bowled out for 363 early on Saturday, with Babar Azam unable to add to his 68 after retiring hurt Friday with a broken forearm while facing Ben Stokes.The hosts soon found themselves in further trouble as Alastair Cook was dismissed for just one. Pakistan bowled well but we have to be better. "We have a very inexperienced team but we are very confident in our players".
Captain Joe Root batted patiently, content to defend and take advantage of the rare loose balls served up by a disciplined Pakistan attack. Well below par, and we were always chasing the game from there, really.
Peru Captain Paolo Guerrero Cleared To Play In The World Cup

4 - Defeats, in 34 matches, for England in home Tests that have started in May.
"But it's not just one or two guys - we were collectively all under par this week". It was nowhere near good enough for Test level. Usually when we lose one or two quick wickets, it usually follows with another two or three so that's something we have sit down - we've done it in the past which may make things worse - and continue to work on.
"We have to be more patient and take our opportunities when we get them". Those two boys, with 400 and 500 Test wickets, I don't think they've done a lot wrong.
Serena mirrors Black Panther to battle past Pliskova
There is also a symbolism about it, too. "I am so happy to be back here". "I call it like my Wakanda-inspired catsuit". She said, "Winning's always been the way I define myself and I want it to stay that way for a long time".
Another man who looks on borrowed time is Dawid Malan, that Ashes century seems a long way away now, while that modest first class record seems increasingly relevant and England's middle order remains as flaky as it has been for what feels like an eternity.
