The England selectors named an unchanged team on Sunday from the side that claimed a nine-wicket victory over Pakistan in the second Test at Edgbaston last week. England lead the four-match series 2-0.
"We were delighted with the way the team performed at Edgbaston in the second Test," national selector Geoff Miller said.
"To put together dominant performances in back-to-back Test matches is a credit to the team's hard work, but the key remains consistency throughout the duration of the series."
