England replaced Hampshire spinner Liam Dawson with batsman Middlesex Dawid Malan after their second-Test hammering at Trent Bridge and Root seems happy to stick with the five-batter ploy. However, they got back into the game with a century partnership between Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis. It was not a usual Test-cricket-knock as one might expect, but Moeen had the confidence to look in the eyes of the bowlers despite wickets falling all around. He's their No 1 cricketer at the moment, arguably.
Maharaj, who took an economical two for 48 in 30.4 overs, added: "I'm pleased on a personal note but it's unfortunate we're 2-1 down in the series". He's opened the batting, he's batted at numbers three through nine, he's been their first spinner, he's been their second spinner, albeit only in name - he'd probably even drive the team bus if he was asked to, no doubt in an unassuming, languid style.
"We've had to overcome different challenges but the way we've played as a unit, especially in these last two games, we've been brilliant", Root said.
For now England have beaten the No2 ranked team in the world while effectively at times carrying three passengers, partly due to their own bad judgement in picking Gary Ballance and Liam Dawson for the first two Tests, and that could easily be viewed as a positive.

Yadav dismisses Tharanga; Sri Lanka 118/1 after 29 overs
The blow ensured that slow bowling ruled the roosts today, and rightly so given the manner of all the dismissals that took place. With a fifty-run stand, they were able to put India back on top. "In the first innings, the ball was not turning that much".
