England's Moeen Ali celebrates with his teammates after taking the wicket of Pakistan's Sohail Khan, winning the third Test at Edgbaston on Sunday.


England beat Pakistan by 141 runs in the third Test at Edgbaston on Sunday to go 2-1 up in the four-match series.
Pakistan were bowled out for 201 after being set a target of 343 for victory when England captain Alastair Cook declared the hosts' second innings on 445 for six early on Sunday's fifth and final day.
A dramatic collapse before tea, where they lost four wickets for one run in 23 balls, effectively ended Pakistan's chances of saving the game.
Pakistan's last-wicket pair of Sohail Khan (36) and Rahat Ali delayed defeat with a stand of 50 in 67 balls.
But Birmingham-born Moeen Ali, who earlier in the day made a quickfire 86 not out, ended the match when the off-spinner caught and bowled Sohail off a hard-hit drive with 13.1 overs remaining.
The fourth Test at The Oval starts on Thursday.
