Match Summary

Match Drawn
Stumps, Day 5

England and Pakistan draw third and final Test – England win series 1-0.

Azam punish Anderson

Babar adds to his boundary tally by whipping Anderson behind square on the leg side and then bags four more in front of square on the off-side as the bowler errs too full.

Wicket for Root; PAK go 4 down

A wicket for England and it’s Joe Root who has Asad Shafiq out caught at forward short leg. Pakistan. FOW-172/4

Half-century for Babar Azam

Babar not holding back

Pakistan might be playing for a draw but that isn’t stopping Babar Azam from playing his shots. He lofted Joe Root for a couple of boundaries.

Yet another bowling change from Root

A little more than 10 overs left for new balls and Jor Root wants to rush through it.

Looks like Broad and Anderson will be saved for the second new ball and we will get to that point at breakneck speed if Root continues to scoot through his overs this quickly. Pakistan 142/3 after 72 overs 

Milestone for Babar Azam as well

The flamboyant Pakistan right-hander crosses 2K Test runs.

Azam-Shafiq hold fort
Anderson could have added another one

Anderson is not far away from wicket No 601 with a pitched-up delivery snaking past Shafiq’s outside edge as it darts back in a touch to the right-hander. Shafiq rather fishing at that one.

Watch the historic delivery here!

Anderson scripts history; gets his 600th wicket

The landmark scalp comes as Azhar edges through to Root in the cordon after the bowler finds some extra bounce. FOW-112/3

Consecutive maidens from Archer

Archer keeping Pakistan on a string as they are unable to score off his in his first two overs of the day. Anderson bowling with him at the other end and is making sure the batsman puts bat on ball. PAK-105/2 after 60 overs.

Pakistan to bat 45 overs
Play to resume at 8.45pm


Inspection at 8.30pm IST, with a view to playing at 8.45pm IST


Another inspection scheduled at 8.15pmIST. The super-soppers have trundled back out to try and deal with a couple of those wet patches. The umpires are having a chat with both teams and the decision could go either way.

Inspection at 7.30pm

The final inspection before the play starts will be at 7:30 PM IST. The umpires have previously decided it’s still too wet and that’s why another inspection is needed.

Good news for the fans!

The run-up covers are being taken off, supersoppers in action.

News from Ageas Bowl!

Next inspection at 1.40pm local time (6.10pm) IST so there will be no play before lunch. Two clear hours and we will be good to go- that’s something to look forward to.

Rain has stopped!

The groundstaff is predicting that it will take at least a couple hours delay after the rain stops to dry the outfield. Talk about cutting it close!!

Action is promised!

Some of the forecasts for this afternoon are looking brighter, so there’s every chance we’ll get on at some stage. James Anderson is also eager to go down to the pitch in pursuit of his #600 Test wickets

Start delayed!

A delayed start is expected as it is still quite wet in Southampton. The covers are on, it looks pretty dark.

Pakistan praying to rain gods!

If Pakistan fails to hold fort, the Men in Green will succumb to their first Test series defeat on English soil after a decade.

Stuart Broad (1-23) got the breakthrough as the players returned for an extended final session following a four-hour delay, pinning Masood in front not playing a shot. Anderson later, got Abid Ali, trapping him lbw as Pakistan closed Day 4’s play at 100 for 2 and trailing by 210 runs.
