BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan Cricket team captain Misbah ul Huq has revealed the key to success for victory against the English side in the third test match to be played today.
England levelled the four-match series at 1-1 last time out at Old Trafford.
Between them, England captain Cook and vice-captain Root made 506 runs for just twice out at Old Trafford in a second Test the hosts won by the huge margin of 330 runs.
But you have to go back to May 2015 for the last time another specialist England batsman made a Test hundred — discarded opener Adam Lyth’s 107 against New Zealand at Headingley.
“In every team there are key players and at the moment those two are in really good form,” said Misbah of Cook and Root at Edgbaston on Tuesday.
“If you really have to put pressure on the opposition, it’s important to get their main players out because those are the two pillars of their batting.
