England vs Pakistan live stream start time

The England vs Pakistan 3rd Test begins tomorrow (Aug. 21)  at 11 a.m. BST / 6 a.m. ET. It continues through to Aug. 25, and broadcasts from the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. While those in the US and UK will pay to watch, it's free on PTV Sports in Pakistan.

The 3rd test of the England vs Pakistan live stream begins tomorrow and gives the Brit side something to fight hard for: the end of a decade-long streak. Yes, for 10 years, they've never beaten Pakistan, and after winning the first Test and drawing Test 2, a win is finally possible. 

Test 2 saw strong performances by James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes, banding together in the absence of Ben Stokes, who had to fly to New Zealand to visit his ailing father.

England's also got a bit of a choice on its hands, as the upcoming Ashes series gives them reason to want to play Jofra Archer and Mark Wood more. Would this bet be worth it, when the hot hands are elsewhere?

So, can Pakistan keep its streak alive? They're still waiting on their batsmen to make it so. Here's everything you need to watch England vs Pakistan live streams this week:
