    Wickets are only ensuring that england will win this game and won't end up as draw...It's a no brainer to back england to win moment they decided to bat first, rest all is a procedure...If history tell us anything, then its that home teams batting first just don't loose..It happens 2-3 times in an year that a home team loses a test match batting first..

    not really that uncommon , Pakistan defeated them easily twice batting second and should perhaps have batted second in the 2nd test earlier .

    The toss is just an excuse for the shortcomings.

    Sometimes, I really get confused with Kohli's Captaincy - why should he not take the new ball now? This old ball is moving still, but a new ball should move more off the wicket and seem around.

    Wicket can come at a frequent rate if Bumrah & Ishant attacks with new ball. Old or new, Poms are not scoring at more than 2.2 in any stage, therefore I don't think new ball should increase scoring rate.

    In any case, on this wicket bowling with Jadeja when new ball is due!!!

    England have batted 84 overs at 2.17 RPO.


    Misbah's Pakistan only batted 84 overs or more at a slower run rate than this once ever, 2.15 RPO in the third innings of a match against England that Pakistan won.

    The slowest they batted 84+ overs in the first innings was 2.47 RPO and 2.56 RPO, they won both those tests as well.

    ENG lost 6/48 against old ball - definitely it's not easy out there, but could have scored a little faster I believe. It could have been 230 all-out in 80s over then, but not sure if they can reach 230 in 100 overs like this.

    What good are facts when people have their pre-conceived prejudices.

    If this innings happened under Misbah's watch, the reaction here would've made the eruption of Mount Vesuvius seem a children's tea party.

    Best batting wicket of the series- this is what Ithought after the first session. Not to be, massive rough for Moeen on a sluggish pitch.Eng winning with early finish by day 3 is the likely result.

    Massive effort from our bowlers though.
