England carved out a 128-run lead over Pakistan on a rain-affected day two of their must-win second Test at Headingley.
Dom Bess (49) and Jos Buttler (34no) made the most meaningful contributions after Joe Root fell for 45 as the hosts - looking to avoid a first home Test series defeat since 2014 - closed on 302-7.
Buttler was reprieved on four when Hasan Ali spilled a catch at mid-wicket and was also clonked on the side of the grille by Hasan as he batted through to stumps, with debutant Sam Curran (16no) alongside him.
Persistent drizzle kept Root and nightwatchman Bess in the dressing room until 2.45pm when the pair resumed England's innings on 106-2 - Keaton Jennings (29) and Alastair Cook (46) having fallen the previous evening.
Root progressed from his overnight 29 but then perished half an hour into play on his home ground, nicking a full delivery from Mohammad Amir that angled across him through to Sarfraz Ahmed on the drive.
Bess went on to share a 62-run stand with Dawid Malan (28) for the fourth wicket before both set batsmen were dismissed early in the final session.
Malan, who had begun to unfurl some aesthetic drives before the break, gloved the seventh ball after the restart to Haris Sohail at slip, with the Middlesex man undone by Amir's extra bounce.
Bess also fell to a rising delivery, this time from spinner Shadab Khan, as he missed out on a second successive fifty, having hit 57 on debut in England's nine-wicket defeat at Lord's last week.
Buttler remains on course for a second consecutive fifty, though, and the eighth of his Test career, due to Hasan's error off the bowling of Shadab.
Jonny Bairstow (21) and Chris Woakes (17) were dismissed, however, snicking Faheem Ashraf and a beauty from Mohammad Abbas behind respectively - Bairstow having successfully overturned an lbw decision on eight with Faheem's ball shown to be bouncing over the stumps.
