PAK vs ENG | 3rd Test: What a form of Test cricket has the England team displayed in the past few weeks! So far it seems that this aggressive approach in red-ball cricket is suiting England’s color. England won the first two test matches with complete domination over Pakistan in their home, which has set a pure example of demolishment.
The third test match of the England tour of Pakistan is currently in action. The approach of the Englishmen is the same as like before and they have put Pakistan on the edge of losing this match too. Would you believe me if I say “80 odd runs in just 11 overs in the 4th innings of a Test match”? Of course not! But this is the brand of cricket England have introduced in the Test. England need 55 runs to win the 3rd test match.
PAK vs ENG: 3rd Test | Match review (summary)
This is the third test match between England and Pakistan. Starting with winning the toss, Pakistan chose to bat first. They tried the exact same tactic as England did in the last two matches. Every batter attacked the England bowling and they lost wickets too but eventually, Pakistan’s innings ends on a good note with 304 on the board on the evening of Day 1.
England’s innings didn’t take a leap at the start but the Youngster Harry Brook is having an absolutely miraculous tour of Pakistan. He hammered another century on this tour and England rode his innings and went past Pakistan to 354.
The moving day of this Test match has indeed moved on at a rapid pace. Pakistan’s second innings started well but they lost 3 quick wickets within 12 balls and then Babar with Saud Shakeel stitched a 110 runs partnership which came to an end with Babar’s wicket. England men’s youngest Test debutant Rehan Ahmed took the breeze on his own and became the youngest to hit a 5 wicket haul on the debut. This Stopped Pakistan on 216 with a lead of just 166 runs. The Target for England was set at 167 to win the third Test.
50 runs in the 6th over of the test match! That is England’s way of domination. England started out by attempting to collect the runs before the closing. In 11.3 overs, Zak Crawley and Ben Duckett scored 87 runs, Rehan was moved up to No. 3 as a “night-hawk,” and then Ben Stokes attempted to hit Nauman Ali for a six but was stopped by bad lighting with 55 runs still needed.
