“We are not interested in a draw, if Pakistan gonna beat us then be it”, says Joe Root

Joe Root said that England will continue to pursue an outright result in the Rawalpindi Test even though the first three days have seen six centuries scored and only 17 wickets fall.

“We are not really interested in drawing the match,” he said. “We want to give ourselves that chance, and if Pakistan is good enough to beat us, then so be it.” “There is a lot of entertaining cricket to come.”

Pakistan were dismissed for 579 on Sunday, the fourth day of the opening test in Rawalpindi, conceding a first innings lead of 78 to England.

Resuming at 499-7, Pakistan added 80 runs to close the gap on England’s first innings total of 657.
