But, in truth the damage had always been done by a pair of top-order slumps that saw England, so often dominant in early-season home conditions, dismissed for 184 in their first innings before declining to 110 for six second time around.
'I don't think England can save this, unless the rain comes, ' he said.
Broad edged Abbas to Sarfraz without scoring and Amir comprehensively bowled the 20-year-old Bess for 57 to dismiss the hosts for 242 as England lost their last four wickets for the addition of six runs.
Buttler was then 66 not out and Bess 55 not out.
England were bowled out for 184 on the first day after Root won the toss and never recovered as they suffered their first defeat in a May test at the home of cricket following series losses in Australia and New Zealand.
Pakistan pacers' fuller lengths on day one to invite England batsmen to come forward and play and not wait the new ball and seam out was one master stroke.

Buttler fell in the second over, trapped lbw by man-of-the-match Mohammad Abbas for 67 and failing to get the decision overturned on review.
He reached his 50 before Mohammad Amir took centre stage with two wickets in one over.
It was the exit of Malan, who saw a piece of his helmet fly off after turning away from a Hasan Ali bouncer, that sparked the slump.
Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has been fined 60 per cent of his match fee, while the rest of the team have received 30 per cent fines.
Amir, whose career nearly came to a complete end at Lord's back in 2010 after he received a jail sentence and five-year ban from cricket for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal during a corresponding Test against England, had taken two wickets for no runs in three balls.
However, after Abbas, England's prime tormentor in the opening encounter with eight wickets and a player of the match award, caught Alastair Cook LBW dead in front of the wickets, Joe Root's side were sitting ducks.
A frustration of the talented Root's career has been an inability to turn Test fifties into hundreds and Saturday was a case in point.
The overcast skies above Lord's allied to a green-tinged pitch promised to assist Pakistan's pacemen but several England batsmen were the architects of their own downfall.
