England bounce back as Pakistan take lead at Edgbaston

BIRMINGHAM: Skillful bowling from England bowlers has taken them back in the game as they take Pakistan’s remaining seven wickets for just 143 runs on Day 3 of Edgbaston Test.

Pakistan, resuming the day with 257/3, have been rolled up for 400 in 136 overs.

England will now come to bat for second innings with the deficit of 103 runs.

First wicket of the day fell when Younis Khan fell for 31 runs, chasing an way swinger from Woakes, resultantly producing a thin edge to Bairstow.

Asad Shafiq was clean bowled by Broad moments later. He went without disturbing the scoreboard.

Misbah ul Haq (56) dragged one from Anderson. Yasir Shah failed to complete his second run on his own call, and was run out for 7. Mohammad Amir (1) and Sohail Khan (7) were both decided LBW.

Sarfaraz, the lonely warrior, was the only lower middle order batsman, standing on the other end, watching wickets tumbling. He scored a handy 46 (not out) before Pakistan batting was wrapped up for 400 runs, with a lead of 103.

With the fall of final wicket, Tea has been called. England’s batting starts in few minutes.
