    But, that is for another day. Until then, enjoy the Olympics.

    So, in pretty unlikely fashion, England go 2-1 up in this series. If they win at The Oval, a match which begins on Thursday, then they could become the world number ones.

    John Ashenden: Where's all the armchair experts who wanted Moeen dropped? Not too shabby this time out eh?

    I think if you spoke to most people knowledgeable about cricket, they’d say if you look at the teams, you think England are the better side. England should win more than they lose against Pakistan.

    England captain Alastair Cook on where this win ranks: "It could be right up there. We seemed to be right behind for most of the game and when we got the chance to win the game we were fantastic.

    "It was great character from the guys to come back and bowl like we did, and we batted well in the third innings of the game. To wipe out that deficit on that third evening was massive.

    "Great credit to the four seamers. Also, the way Mo bowled into the rough after lunch - he bowled fantastically well after being under pressure for a while."

    On Pakistan's last-wicket stand of 50: "I had a little bit of doubt at some stage but I did remind myself that we'd get a couple more chances at some stage."

    This series has been up and down, it's see-sawed a bit. That's what you want to see. Old Trafford was a bit one-sided and fair play to England for that. But a bit of see-sawing, that's what you like to watch.

    More from Moeen Ali: "The man-of-the-match award could have gone to a number of guys. Somehow it's me, and I'm pleased. I just tried to play the situation. I never really thought about it too much. 

    "I was quite embarrassed after the Lord's game with the shots I played there. I feel like I prepared quite well before this game so I'm happy."

  9. Man of the match

    Man of the match Moeen Ali on TMS:  "As a team we were fantastic, it just shows how good the team we have is. We were behind the eight-ball a little bit, but fought back brilliantly. Our seamers were fantastic, it showed how good they are today on a flat pitch."

    Was that the best you've played this summer?

    "I think so. I went out and played my normal game. I didn't mean to go out so quickly, it just happened. It's fantastic to be man of the match here. We thought their tail was quite long and if we got them five or six wickets down, we'd be OK."

    Chris Watkins: People need to get off Cook's back. He knows what he's doing, embrace the talent and decision making we have in our side now!

    Keith Bunting: Second consecutive match, Cook captaincy criticised before England go on to comfortable victory.

    More from Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq on TMS - was he still happy with his decision to field first after winning the toss? "I think so - the first day was really good for bowling, a lot of moisture around and we could have restricted them to less than 250, but you saw after that it was a batting paradise, there wasn't any turn so I still back our decision. But we only took a lead of 100 from a situation where we'd been 260-3.

    "We've got one more game left, The Oval is a good batting track and helps the spinners, so we need to get our confidence back and go there positively."

  12. Post update

    Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq on TMS: "We're disappointed as it was going really well at lunch but in an hour we lost the game. 

    "England reversed the ball, bowled in the right areas and with intensity, and within an hour they took the game away from us. We weren't having any sort of problems before lunch, but that spell from Anderson and Finn broke the backbone of our team. 

    "Sometimes when the ball starts reversing you just need to see off that 10-15 overs so the ball gets soft, but we lost all our main batsmen then."

  13. Post update

    More from England captain Alastair Cook on TMS, on the timing of the declaration: "I wanted a few more runs [this morning] as I didn't want to give Pakistan a sniff. 

    "To score 300, someone would have to play exceptionally well, but they'd still have a chance, so I wanted another 30 or 40 runs. It's one of my most enjoyable wins as captain as everyone contributed."

  14. Post update

    England captain Alastair Cook on TMS: "The heavy roller at the beginning of day two took the pace out of the pitch, and we had to hang in there and stay in the game as there's always pressure batting fourth.

    "We knew when we batted second time around it was flat, and although no-one got a hundred we all contributed and batted deep on day four, so we knew today we could put pressure on them."

    SMS Message: Great win for England, shows how often declaration debates are redundant. However, one could argue it also shows why Cook is often a tad too negative still, Pakistan haven't got anywhere near us, which shows what a potential waste this morning could have been. from Ade

    Moeen played two splendid innings. The first innings was good when England weren't making as many as they should have. The second one he played with Bairstow and got runs here and there.

    Until Moeen had the final word with the second of his two wickets to go with his scores of 63 and 86 not out with the bat.

    Until last-wicket pair Sohail Khan and Rahat Ali had some fun.

    Pakistan struggled with their batting. Too many players are not playing well. At Old Trafford I thought 'they’re not going to get out of this'. Hafeez has played terrible shots, Younus looks past it, he's jumping around - on the whole you think that’s not great.
