Pakistan have got enough.....Shaheen and Shadab to bowl England out.....goodnight all! #PakvsEng— Mickey Arthur (@Mickeyarthurcr1) August 7, 2020
England roared back into contention with the ball but Pakistan remained in the driving seat following an intriguing third day of the first Test at Old Trafford on Friday.
Pakistan closed the day on 137 for eight in their second innings, an overall lead of 244 on a wearing wicket where the tourists’ spinners bowled England out for 219 earlier in a fast-moving contest.
Yasir Shah (12 not out) and Mohammad Abbas (0 not out) will look to build Pakistan’s lead further on the fourth morning and take the game away from their hosts.
Only once before in 81 tests has more than 244 been successfully chased to win at Old Trafford, when England reached 294 for four to defeat New Zealand in 2008.
