It is a series when two senior most players, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan will be bidding farewell to cricket. With the weather playing villain, the interest on the third day was Younis Khan completing his 10000 runs and joining an exclusive club. He accomplished it just after tea, and then the score picked up.

Younis and Babar Azam continued their 131 runs stand for the third wicket before Captain Jason Holder brought in Shannon Gabriel who did not disappoint the confidence placed by his skipped and got the prized scalp of Younis Khan.
