Alastair Cook chose not to enforce the follow-on despite a first-innings lead of 391 as England pressed for a series-levelling win over Pakistan on day three of the second Test, at Old Trafford. Kylie Fitts Jersey . Cook (49no off 53 balls) instead led the way as the home side improved their lead to 489 by reaching 98-1 on a rain-interrupted day in Manchester after Pakistan folded to 198 all out on a true surface.Only skipper Misbah-ul-Haq (52) passed fifty, his ninth-wicket stand of 60 with Wahab Riaz (39) the sole partnership of substance as Chris Woakes finished with 4-67 and Joe Root bagged four catches.Pakistan, 1-0 up in the series, already need to make history to win the Test - the highest successful run-chase remaining West Indies 418-7 against Australia in Antigua in 2003.A draw appears the best the tourists can hope for and it remains to be seen whether England, now in the record books with the fifth biggest first-innings lead for not enforcing the follow-on, will rue the decision. Michael Atherton and David Lloyd discuss whether England should have enforced the follow-on Woakes (4-67) waited his turn in the morning session as James Anderson (1-27) and Stuart Broad (1-20) got first crack at Pakistan, who resumed on 57-4 in reply to Englands immense 589-8 declared.The tourists were quickly in deeper trouble as Anderson ended Shan Masoods dogged, 84-ball innings of 39 by finding the openers edge - Root gobbling the chance at second slip - and after a half-hour rain delay Broads cutter deceived Asad Shafiq, who picked out Hales at point.Sarfraz Ahmed upped the tempo with a typically brisk 26, which included five fours, but could not match the resilience of his captain, who hit his first boundary off his 47th ball faced.Sarfrazs dash ended when he snicked Ben Stokes (2-39) to Root, who held another chance with one ball to go to lunch as Yasir Shah fended outside off.That made Root only the third man in Test history to score 200 or more and take four catches in an innings after Australian Bobby Simpson, in 1965 against West Indies and Jacques Kallis against Sri Lanka, in 2012.Misbah, who had his grill rattled by Woakes on 21, finally found a solid ally in the unlikely form of Wahab Riaz - the pair sharing a stand of 60, the highest partnership of the innings. A fierce Chris Woakes bouncer broke part of Misbah-ul-Haqs helmet The skipper reached his 33rd fifty in 63 Tests by sweeping his 108th ball for one, Wahab celebrating by slog-sweeping the very next delivery from Moeen Ali for six to go to 28 and eclipse his previous personal best score of 27 in the process.When Misbah fell, caught top-edging Moeen around the corner, Wahab opened up - smashing the spinner down the ground and reverse sweeping for back-to-back boundaries before holing out to hand Woakes his fourth wicket.Englands second dig was shower-hit from the start - rain forcing an early tea at 11-0 and allowing only two more balls to be bowled when the players returned after a delay of just under an hour.The innings resumed 41 minutes later, England leading by 402 at that point, with England showing a greater sense of urgency - Hales (24) hammering Yasirs first ball down the park for four and Cook driving Mohammad Amir through the covers in imperious fashion.The skipper picked up where he left off after a further rain break, sweeping Yasirs first delivery after the resumption for four only to see Hales fall to Amir for the second time in the match, this time inside-edging behind.Root (23no off 19 balls) was off the mark first ball with a boundary - opening the face to run Amir down to the third man fence and used the slog-sweep to good effect to further enhance Englands dominant position.Watch highlights of day three of the second Test between England and Pakistan at 10pm on Sky Sports 2, then stay tuned for the Verdict at 11pm.

They have watched it from afar. And now they have seen it for themselves.(SportsNetwork.com) - After sweeping one division leader, the Blue Jays and RA Dickey are set to kick off a four game set versus another one as Toronto is in Oakland to face Sonny Gray and the Athletics. The Jays dropped three in a row and four of five before sweeping a quick two- game set with the Milwaukee Brewers to cap a nine-game homestand at 5-4. After missing seven straight starts due to a strained left hamstring, Jose Bautista homered in both games of the set versus Milwaukee, while Edwin Encarnacion and Juan Francisco also went deep in Wednesdays 7-4 win. Encarnacions MLB high-tying 26th homer of the campaign was a three-run, walk- off shot. "Were going to have a happy flight," Encarnacion said. Toronto has a one-game lead over Baltimore for first place in the AL East, while Oaklands advantage over the Los Angeles Angels for the top spot in the AL West is at 3 1/2 games. The Athletics were swept in three games by the Detroit Tigers, losing Wednesdays finale 9-3, as they wrapped an eight-game swing with a 4-4 mark. Brandon Moss went 4-for-4 in yesterdays setback, hitting his 19th homer of the campaign and falling a triple shy of the cycle. Coco Crisp also went deep, but starter Jesse Chavez yielded five runs over five-plus innings. "Not only is it frustrating, but Ive been down that path before," Chavez said of his outing.

Gray allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings of work for his shortest outing of the year.

The 24-year-old righty is 7-3 with a 3.20 ERA on the year and will face the Blue Jays for the second time in his career. Gray lost to them on Aug. 10 of last year, charged with four runs -- two earned -- on four hits and three walks over six frames. The Blue Jays counter with the struggling R.A.

Four of the five hits he gave up were homers, though he did fan nine to just one walk. The 39-year-old right-hander is 6-7 with a 4.24 ERA on the year. Dickey is 2-4 lifetime versus the As with a 4.60 ERA in 15 meetings with 11 starts. That includes a victory on May 24, when he gave up two runs over 8 1/3 frames of a 5-2 home victory.
