Moeen Ali  is the Man of the Match
Alastair Cook:It could be right up there. Seemed behind for most of the game but we hung in there. The heavy roller took a bit out of the pitch. Great character from the bowlers to get something out of it. It was getting a little bit tight in the end. The ball just reversed enough. The square just made the ball to do a tiny, tiny bit. I knew that if you could bat them to survive, you can put them under pressure. Moeen bowled fantastically well after being under pressure. Ben Stokes will come in later and add more balance to the side.The way we bowled on day 2 on a flat wicket was good. We batted really well then to bat out the deficit. We earned the right to accelerate in the end.
Misbah-ul-Haq: I think it was going well till the second day but the game changed on the third day. We lost a couple of wickets. I was unlucky to get out and Younis was caught down the leg side. We bowled a little indisciplined in the session England took it away from us. Full credit to England - the way they bowled. The ball was reversing and they bowled good areas, taking four of our main batsmen. We have to send some of our bowlers to learn reverse swing from England. They are really bowling it well. England kept coming hard at us. Most of the time, we were really competitive. Yesterday, they were five down but that Moeen Ali partnership took things away. That's a problem for a long, long time (on not having an all-rounder for a 5-man attack). This is what we have. We will obviously try to get someone ready for that.
England won by 141 runs and lead the series with 2-1
