Highlights: Pakistan thrash sorry England
bbc.comCoach Trevor Bayliss says he expects a response from his "embarrassed" England side in the final Test against Pakistan at Headingley on Friday.England were thrashed by nine wickets in the opening Test at Lord's and have not won in eight Tests.They will fall from fifth to sixth in the rankings if they lose in Leeds.
"We have shown in the past that when we haven't played very well, come the next one, we've pulled the finger out," Bayliss said."I'd be expecting they'll be a little embarrassed about the way they've played in this game and their performance in the next one will be better."
