The 2016 series between Pakistan and England is nearing a nail-biting finish, as both the teams have won one Test each, and now they are gearing up for the third game at Edgbaston on August 03, 2016.

Pakistan, who shocked the English side at Lords by triumphing with 75 runs, lost to the hosts by a big margin of 350 runs in Machester.

Now, the Asian team will be aiming to bounce back at any cost to grab a one-game lead by winning this crucial encounter. 

England's last Test win once again pointed out the batting weaknesses of Pakistan in the top lineup. 

No Pakistani batsmen were capable of combating the English pace attack in a grass filled pitch, and it will be the major point of concern for Misba Ul Haq.

Batting sensation Sham Masood has literally failed to live up to his potentials, and the same is the case of veteran performers, Younus Khan and Mohamad Hafiz. 

Misbah even in his forties is in form, but in Cricket, it is not possible to win matches with a one man show.

On the other hand, the European team is quite composed, and they have an inspiring leader who motivates everyone in the team with full heart. 

Alistair Cook will bring in Steve Finn into the playing eleven, and in all probabilities, Moin Ali will also retain his position.

History is also in favor of Cook and his boys, as the unit has lost just one game at this venue in the past fourteen years. The terrific batting form of Joe Root will provide that extra morale for the squad.
