Pakistan scored 214 runs into the 2nd innings of them by losing 8 wickets. Chris Woakes on fire once again. After 6 wicket into the first innings, destroy Pakistani batting lineups by taking 5 wicket so far in the last innings. Hero of the 3rd day surely this English man Woakes. He took 4 very important wicket of Pak team.
England started day 3 by kept 3 wicket hand. Woakes and Stuart Broad was the last hope for the English team to reduce lead by runs. But it was very tough for them to stay into the pitch during this morning. Wahab Riaz & Yasir Shah both took a wicket in this morning which stopped English team within a short minute.
Pakistan started their 2nd innings by 67 runs lead. This only lead was very important for the greens to become confident into the game. Mohammad Hafeez and Misbah-ul-haque’s duck frustrated Pak fans. Though rest of the batsman contribute double digit run for the team. But the matter is, no one can make half century as well. Highest run for the team scored by Asad Shafiq 49 and 2nd highest scored by wicketkeeper batsman Sarfraz Ahmed. Unexpected batting came from specialist bowler Yasir Shah’s bat. This test professional bowler scored not out 30 runs by facing 57 bowl today. Mohammad Amir and Rahat Ali will play with Yasir Shah into the next morning. Still 281 run lead is challenging total against England for the 4th innings. 2 days left of them match, still 180 over in hand. Bowlers contribution can support Pakistan to win this test. But it will surely a toughest job by the bowlers.
It’s becoming tough and tough to guess the result of this test match. If Pakistani fast can perform like Chris Woakes, than it would be a very easy task for the analysts to tell something about the game.
However, the matter of this game is low scoring pitch. As usually, to score more run is really hard into the 4th innings of the test match. To chase around 300 run is surely a challenging job for any teams into this condition. As Pakistan having experienced and skilled bowling lineups in their side, English batsman could face trouble tomorrow. If Yasir Shah become on fire, that would be great challenging for the red-whites to chase this target.
Editorial prediction going to Pakistan’s side but should consider the innings of Alastair Cook into the 2nd innings. If bowlers can took the wicket of this in form batsman, it would be one step easy for the green armies to win the first test.
