PAK VS ENG 1st Test Day 3 Update: England Takes Key Wickets Amid Plethora Runs Even on Day 3 at Rawalpindi

PAK VS ENG 1st Test Day 3 Update: The match between Pakistan and England has more runs coming. Even on Day 3, we saw a plethora of centuries. The flat wicket had nothing to offer and as a return of England’s 657, Pakistan is on 499 for 7 at the end of Day 3.

PAK VS ENG: DAY 3 SUMMARY

It was England’s day. Imam and Shafique carrying on their respective third Test hundreds ensured that it did not begin that way. The first wicket was broken by Will Jacks, ending a 225-run opening stand. Imam quickly lost his wicket while attempting to challenge Leach. A wicketless afternoon session was made possible by Babar and Shakeel, but the latter nicked Robinson in the first over following tea to reopen the door.

Babar scored his eighth hundred, becoming the seventh player to reach that mark in this game, but additional bounce from Jacks proved to be the demise of Babar. James Anderson’s first Test wicket in Pakistan came when Rizwan was dismissed for a fairly cheap dismissal after attacking but chipping one to Stokes.

After showing some promise, Naseem gave up his wicket, and Pakistan is still 158 runs behind England. England seemed poised to take a sizable lead. After accounting for the overs lost to poor lighting, the game has around five and a half sessions remaining. Still suitable for batting and not acting up too much is the pitch.

PAK VS ENG: DAY 3 ANALYSIS

The home team faltered a little bit after losing four wickets in the penultimate session. With two days left in this match, Pakistan still trails by more than 150 runs, and we know from their public comments that England will bat again and bat hard when they do.

Is there enough time to force a response from this impervious surface? shall we? Ben Stokes will, however, be more than satisfied with his team as they successfully struck out seven batters on a laborious day. Pakistan has been able to stay in the game thanks to centuries from Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, and Babar Azam. Tomorrow, they’ll try to hold off England a little longer.
