With Tea approaching on Day 3, Pakistan seemed to have seized the momentum, but Rehan Ahmed changed the complexion of the game with three quick strikes. Babar Azam, soon after bringing up his fifty, ended up holding out to the mid wicket fielder. Mohammad Rizwan, in his brief stay, survived a few close chances but eventually nicked to the ‘keeper. And Saud Shakeel top edged a sweep to the deep square leg fielder as Pakistan slid from 164 for 3 to 177 for 6. The English spinners continued to dominate on the other end of the break either as Rehan earned a five-wicket haul on debut.
