Joe Root kicked off the third day, also known as moving day in cricketing parlance, with a nippy bouncer but both the overnight unbeaten openers were wary of throwing away their wickets. They had a real shot at triple-figure marks with the surface being easy to navigate, and got there soon enough. Once the 225-run partnership was broken, Pakistan lost two more wickets in the extended morning session. However, Babar Azam, who was expected to score heavily on the Rawalpindi featherbed, has made his way to fifty.
