Stumps, Day 3

It has been an incredible game of cricket today. Fourteen wickets have fallen as we head for a four-day cliffhanger! Pakistan have the upper hand still, with runs on the board and a very tasty pace attack up their arsenal. The current lead is 244. 

11.35pm
Yes, we do! Ben Stokes joins the party!

Pakistan lose their 8th wicket; a well-directed bouncer later and he has his second wicket! Shaheen was just trying to fend it off and gloved it to Rory Burns at gully. FOW-137/8

11.15pm
DRS confirms the dismissal

11.13pm
Pakistam 6 down

Stokes beats the bat and hits Rizwan on the back leg, height is the issue but up goes the finger. That proves crucial as Rizwan reviews and it is umpire’s call. England are still in this. FOW-120/6

10.53pm
Pakistan keep grinding

Stokes, Root, Broad, Bess have a long conversation, Archer comes up to have a word and is given a shake-up by Broad. Rizwan keeps attacking. Shadab picks up a short ball and crashes it into deep midwicket for four. PAK 106/5 after 35

10.45pm
Pakistan lose half their side!

Just what the Pakistan dressing room was dreading of! Hesitation between Rizwan and Shafiq. Dom Sibley makes the most of it with Asad barely in the frame.

10.38pm
200 lead comes up for Pakistan

Clever paddle sweep from Asad, gets the ball fine and it runs all the way to the fence. That takes the lead up to 200 and this partnership has reasserted Pakistan’s position of strength. PAK-95/4 after 33 overs

10.30pm
Riwan-Shafiq show nerves of steel

Stats Trivia

10.02pm
DRS confirms the wicket too

10pm
Pakistan 4 wickets down

It’s all going downhill for the visitors at the moment as skipper Azhar Ali is trapped LBW by Woakes. A full and straight delivery as the PAK captain was wise enough not to waste a review. FOW-63/4

9.52pm
After 23 overs; PAK-63/3 (Lead by 170 runs)

9.38pm

9.27pm
Stats Trivia

9.12pm

Azahar Ali off the mark

The Pakistan captain will heave a sigh of relief as he gets his first runs of the series. And he gets them with consecutive fours. PAK 29/1 after 11

We are back for the third and final session of Day 3

8.32pm
Day 3, Tea Break
Summary so far

8.25pm
Abid dropped by Stokes

Abid edges a couple in this Anderson over, one flying through the vacant gully region, while Stokes’ error really should have been Root’s catch at first slip, but Stokes – forever wanting to be in the game – dives across him and puts the chance down.

8.15pm
After 6 overs; PAK-8/1 (Azhar 0*, Abid 3*) – LEAD BY 115

Broad beats Azhar’s outside edge with back-to-back deliveries that whistle past his defensive prods; another probing over from Broad, the Pakistan skipper is still stuck on a pair.

8.10pm
Joe Root injured

Ben Stokes to act as standing captain in the interim. Joe Root has hurt his finger after attempting a catch in the slips.

8pm
Shan Masood bites the dust

First innings hero for PAK, Masood is dismissed cheaply for a duck as England have been wondering how to get him out for the best part of three days. Not Broad’s best delivery, but Masood gets a thin tickle on the willow through to Buttler. FOW-6/1 

7.50pm
We are back with the PAK 2nd innings

A bit of good news for England as Ben Stokes was seen bowling in the break.

7.43pm
Innings break

Pakistan lead by 107 runs.

7.40pm
Hawk Eye confirms the wicket!

7.38pm
Shadab Khan puts the final nail in the coffin!

England’s final-wicket fun comes to an end as Anderson attempts one reverse-sweep too many, failing to get bat on ball and getting pinned in front lbw. Shadab makes up for his drop in the previous over and ends the innings. FOW-219/10

7.36pm
Broad dropped on 23

Yasir Shah’s first ball for a sweet six over deep square-leg, but in the next ball he picks out the fielder in the deep – only for Shadab to drop a pretty straightforward chance!

7.24pm
200 comes up for England

A tasty reverse-sweep from jimmy Anderson to bring up the double hundred for England. ENG-202/9 after 68 overs

7.19pm
England 9 down
Shadab Khan joins the act!

Archer, just after a DRS save but couldn’t last long in the crease. He seemed to be trying to leave the ball as it turned just a touch and fizzed through to Rizwan, crucially via the glove of the England man. FOW-197/9

7.15pm
Pakistan lose another review

Pakistan goes upstairs for a caught behind off Archer – he only missed it by three or four inches.

7.05pm
The Broadside show!
Triple boundary from Broad

Stuart Broad sends Shaheen Afridi for three consecutive boundaries, adding as many quick runs to the England total as possible. ENG-184/8 after 63 overs

6.56pm
That’s a blimey!

Yasir Shah on a roll!

A shorter and a bit quicker delivery from Yasir as Woakes went back and tried to pull it but the ball rushed through, very little turn, and into middle stump. FOW-170/8

6.50pm
Stats Trivia

Yasir Shah very rarely bowls his googly. Almost 94 per cent of his deliveries are leg breaks in Test cricket – only a handful of balls turn the other way.

6.37pm
Third wicket for Yasir Shah!

Dom Bess goes forward but this one turns sharply from Yasir and takes the shoulder of the bat. It goes high but Asad Shafiq gets his hands to it at slip as Bess departs cheaply for just 1. FOW-161/7

6.27pm
Pakistan lose a review

Azhar Ali went for the review. It’s a fair delivery,the impact is umpire’s but wickets are missing. It just didn’t look close enough for a review. They lose one but still have two more reviews remaining.

6.20pm
Here’s some in-depth analysis of the Yasir Shah delivery

6.18pm
Pakistan strike early after lunch!

6th wicket down for England!

Yasir Shah claims his second wicket as Butler anticipates turn that never comes and the ball goes straight between bat and pad, clattering into off stump. FOW-159/6

6.12pm
We are back with the second session!

Naseem Shah is back to fire up as Chris Woakes once again pads up against the youngster. Will there be a twist in the tale in the afternoon session?

Unfortunate news from the middle

Rain stops play – the players walking off due to this rather unexpected shower. Trust me, it’s going to be a short break – the shower having all but cleared up already.

5.05pm
Woakes fit to continue

Chris Woakes puts on a rib protector as he shuffles to leg, showing nearly three stumps, and is beaten by Naseem outside off-peg.

4.57pm
Injury delay
Woakes hit by a ripper from Naseem

We have a slight delay in play as England all-rounder Chris Woakes undergoes the concussion protocols and has his helmet checked out. Hopefully, it’s nothing serious.

Ollie Pope dismissed for 62

17-year-old Naseem Shah gets one to spit at Pope; it takes the edge and is well held low down by Shadab in the gully. FOW-127/5

50 runs partnership comes up for Pope-Butler

Butler brings up the 50 partnership with Pope with a flamboyant boundary through the covers. ENG-115/4 after 43 overs

4.30pm
Naseem, Abbas in control

There are more instances of the ball beating the bat that actually hitting its middle. A couple of balls from Abbas were perilously close to Jos Buttler’s bat and Naseem with his pace, is throwing down fireballs at Pope. ENG-111/4 in 42 overs.

4.13pm
That was close!!

How did that not carry? Nassem Shah draws the edge from Buttler, pushing at one outside off with hard hands this time, but somehow it falls just short of Azhar at slip. ENG-106/4 after 37 overs

4.04pm

32 of Mohammad Abbas’ 68 Test wickets have come with deliveries that would have hit or clipped the stumps.

Half-century for Ollie Pope

Pope pushes out and flicks through the leg side, two more to bring up his fifty as the English balcony applauds his efforts.

3.41pm
Maiden from Abbas

Pin-point accuracy as always from Mohammad Abbas. Buttler did good while covering the in-swing and defending confidently.

3.30pm
Aaand we are underway!

Shaheen Afridi to start proceedings as Ollie Pope takes his stance at the striker’s end.

3.25pm

Hello guys, welcome back to the live coverage of the England vs Pakistan Day 3.

England vs Pakistan 1st Test Day 3 Live

England ended Day 2 trailing by 234 runs after Pakistan pacers run terror through the English top order. The lethal pace combination of Afridi-Shah-Abbas struck early in the England innings as the hosts lost 4 quick wickets late on Day 2.

Ollie Pope’s form has been the only silver lining for the Three Lions who remained unbeaten at 46 and will be shouldering the hope when he walks out to bat at No 3.
