The squad is Smith's second since replacing James Whitaker as national selector in April.England recalled batsman Jos Buttler and called up uncapped off-spinner Dom Bess for the first Test.The pair helped England avoid an innings defeat after coming together to share an unbroken stand of 125 when the hosts still needed 69 to make Pakistan bat again at the end of the third day.However, any hopes of an unlikely victory ended at the start of day four as England lost four wickets for six runs.Pakistan comfortably chased down the 64 runs required for victory, with the fourth day lasting just 90 minutes despite James Anderson bowling Azhar Ali in the third over.
