Very dissapointing day for Pakistan so far today, Cook regained his old form and looked as if he was right back to his menacing best - much to the despair of all the pakistanis !

England are in the drivers seat at the moment, however that could all change ever so dramaticlly,

Should be an interesting final session......
 
At Tea: 194/3 Kp & Trott still out there, England have managed to build a healthy lead, worrying signs for pak.....
 
Pakistan need a couple of quick wickets, and this game will be all theirs for the taking.

If however, England get to the end of the day without losing anymore wickets, and put on another 100 runs, then Pakistan is in trouble.

Even with the return of Yousuf, chasing 250-300 is probably asking too much from this batting lineup
 
With the ball reversing a bit, I think Wahab Riaz should bowl most of the overs with his pace and action he will generate more reverse swing than Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Aamer.
 
Most on Pakpassion seem to be in Jacko's Never Never Land. "Couple of quick wickets", "Collapse", etc. get real! There is absolutely no way that England will be bowled out for under a 300 lead.

Just sit back and enjoy good cricket.
 
Lol at lost this game.

We need a good session here, 4 wkts and we should be able to keep Eng to a 260-270 lead. This pitch is at it's best today and tommorrow. Eng would want 350+ to be confident.

There is no way aus would get out for 88....Anyone who is predicting the result at this moment is a fool.
 
Than why are you guys still watching the match? don't you have anything better to do than watch a match of which you already know the result of?.

Read Post 10.
 
The game is going Englands way but remember they have collapsed many a time in this series. A wicket or two before the new ball and we could still win this game.

Ajmal needs to give it more rip and Butt needs to set an intelligent field to KP.
 
We need a minimum of 5 wickets in the last session to have any chance. The lead is already 120

Most matches are won on Day 3, this looks to follow that trend. You're the fool for expecting a miracle on this pitch. Please prove me wrong, I'd love to have egg on my face by the end of the day, would be a nice way to end the fast.
 
If Englands lead is around 250, then there is absolutely NO reason as to why we cant win.
 
We need 7 wickets including that of Colly, Prior and The Leprechaun. Wishful thinking if you expect a batting collapse(a feeble attempt here at testing fate)
 
The fielders need to be sharp. KP and JT are abit iffy with the calling. :inzi
 
England has no point forcing a decision for this match or for rest of the test matches. They have already won 2
 
What an absolute jaffer, take a bow Ajmal. He's been throwing in all those big doosra's and then does him with the big turning offie through the gate, superb stuff.
 
Hopefully this wicket triggers a collapse.....got my fingers crossed.
 
I have a feeling Pakistan will win this test. My prediction was 3-1 England for the test series and this is the match Pakistan has the most chance to win.
 
See that! Hawkeye is flawed - Ajmal bowled a delivery, clipped the bails. Hawkeye had it going over.
 
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss !!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I knew this mini collapse would come, typical English middle order to lose their minds after a big partnership.
 
two asbolutely new batsmen at the crease now. neither have even faced a ball!!

Great opportunity here for us try and pile and on the pressure!!!

Come on boys!
 
can't blame KP, but that was awful from Trott. dammit. need at least another 100.
 
Who's that poster who ruled out even the chance of collapse? It's happening! (hopefully it'll continue)
