ISLAMABAD: PTI chief Imran Khan urged the national cricket team to play their best cricket by fighting till the last ball, ahead of the third Test match between Pakistan and England at Edgbaston. Imran tweeted the statement and expressed the hope that the team would play the match without the fear of losing.

Pakistan take on England today at Edgbaston after a disappointing loss to the hosts in the second Test match at Manchester. Pakistan had begun the series triumphantly, beating England by 75 runs but lost the second Test match by a whopping 330 runs.

Before the start of the third match, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq had said that knocking down 'pillars' Joe Root and Alistair Cook was crucial and detrimental for the visitors to clinch the third Test.

The four-match Test series stands leveled at 1-1 so far.
