Former England fast-bowler Matthew Hoggard feels that Misbah-ul-Haq-led Pakistan would be "licking their wounds" after a 330-run drubbing at Old Trafford after a resounding victory at Lord's in the first of the four-Test match series.

"Sport is funny," said the Yorkshireman who featured in the England team that ended an 18-year wait to win the Ashes when they beat Australia in a memorable series in 2005.

"Look at Yasir Shah at Lord's, he looked a world-beater, the best spinner in the world, Shane Warne-esque, and then he took one for 213 in the first innings at Old Trafford," Hoggard told Reuters.

"That's the great thing about sport, you never really know what's going to happen next.

"There are two fantastic games coming up. Edgbaston is another wicket that will produce a result," he said of the venue for the third Test in Birmingham that starts on Wednesday.

"It might turn a little bit but whoever plays the best cricket for four to five days will come out victorious."
