Last Updated: 04/08/16 8:51am
Michael Atherton and Ramiz Raja discuss the efforts of Sohail Khan and Gary Ballance on day one of the third Test at Edgbaston on the Sky Cricket Podcast.
Having been put in to bat, England were bowled out for 297 to conclude the first day's play with Sohail the star for Pakistan, taking 5-96 on his return to Test cricket.
We join Michael Atherton midway through Sohail's clap press-ups celebration. However, the former England skipper was less impressed with England's early struggles on a flat Edgbaston pitch.
The Sky Cricket expert also discussed the contrasting innings', both in terms of style and substance, of Gary Ballance and James Vince.
We also caught up with Ramiz Raja who speaks about Misbah-ul-Haq's bold decision to bowl first having won the toss paying off, Sohail and Yasir Shah shining for the tourists and England's over-reliance on Joe Root and Alastair Cook.
For all that, plus the views of England's top-scorer on day one, Gary Ballance, download the Sky Cricket Podcast.
