ENG vs PAK: Pakistan bowled out for 201 as England take a 141-run win in third test
England lead four-match test series 2-1.
England beat Pakistan by 141 runs in the third Test at Edgbaston on Sunday to go 2-1 up in the four-match series.
Pakistan were bowled out for 201 after being set a target of 343 for victory when England captain Alastair Cook declared the hosts` second innings on 445 for six early on Sunday`s fifth and final day.
A dramatic collapse before tea, where they lost four wickets for one run in 23 balls, effectively ended Pakistan`s chances of saving the game.
Pakistan`s last-wicket pair of Sohail Khan (36) and Rahat Ali delayed defeat with a stand of 50 in 67 balls.
But Birmingham-born Moeen Ali, who earlier in the day made a quickfire 86 not out, ended the match when the off-spinner caught and bowled Sohail off a hard-hit drive with 13.1 overs remaining.
The fourth Test at The Oval starts on Thursday.
England 1st Inns 297 (G Ballance 70, M Ali 63; Sohail Khan 5-96)
