Imam, Abdullah hit centuries before England strikes three wickets on Day 3

RAWALPINDI: Spinners finally rejoiced England as they took down three wickets before Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique completed their centuries as Pakistan raised 298/3 before Lunch on Day 3 of the opening Test, here at Pindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday. 

Pakistan openers piled up an astounding 221-run partnership as Abdullah raised his third Test century early on the third day before Will Jacks gave England the much-needed breakthrough.

Part-timer Jacks had his first Test wicket when he dismissed promising Abdullah in a caught-behind wicket after scoring 114 off 203, including 13 fours and three sixes.

Imam (121 off 207) soon followed the suit and fell prey to Jack Leach, who then went on to hunt experienced Azhar Ali after managing 27 off 47.

Skipper Babar Azam, however, looks in fine touch as he has scored 28 runs so far with help of three scintillating boundaries and will resume the play after Lunch with debutant Saud Shakeel on the other end.
