Sky Cricket Podcast: Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton preview thrilling final day

Cricket Podcast

Nasser Hussain and Michael Atherton look ahead to a thrilling final day's play in store in the third Test at Edgbaston on the latest Sky Cricket Podcast.

England built a 311-run lead over Pakistan by stumps on day four, with Jonny Bairstow (82no) and Moeen Ali (60no) demoralising the visitors with an unbroken 132-run stand for the sixth wicket, to end the day.

Nasser believes it leaves Pakistan in a very vulnerable position, with a possible final-day collapse on the cards, especially if England take wickets with the new ball, which Nasser believes will be crucial.

Athers says that Pakistan's four-man attack is struggling to cope with their workload, and praised the 'accomplished' batting of Bairstow.

Watch a pick of the action from the fourth day of the third Test between England and Pakistan at Edgbaston.

Nasser also rates Moeen's knock as his best in an England shirt, though both he and Athers are concerned by the repetitive nature of England's other batsmen - Alex Hales, James Vince and Gary Ballance's dismissals in particular.

We also hear the view from inside the England dressing room as Joe Root speaks to Ian Ward at the close of play.
