Pakistan who grabbed a first-innings lead of 103 runs, is slowly going out of the track at the end of the third day's play of the 3rd Test against England. The hosts have managed to score 120 runs without the loss of any wickets.

Both Alistair Cook and Hales looked so composed in the second half of the day and they played the Pakistan bowling attack with full ease.

The England openers targeted Sohail Khan who picked five wickets in the first innings, and he conceded 40 runs off eight overs with an economy rate of 5. Even Mohamed Aamir was helpless against the English batsmen as he failed to find any swing from the pace friendly Edgbaston pitch.

The European side has now fetched 17 runs lead, and they will be aiming to make it more than 300 by the dawn of thefourth day. If they succeed in this attempt, then it will pressurize Pakistan for sure, and it will make this match a nail-biting experience.
