Pakistan draws third Test ; England win series by 1-0

The third and final Test between England and Pakistan in Southampton ended in a stalemate on Tuesday.

The Three Lions won the three-match series by 1-0 courtesy their three-wicket triumph in Manchester whereas the second Test in Southampton ended in a draw.

The Green Caps, who needed 210 runs on the final day to avoid an innings defeat with eight wickets in hand, finished the rain-affected fifth day at 187-4. Babar Azam and Fawad Alam were unbeaten at 63 and nought respectively.

James Anderson made Test cricketing history in the final session as he became the first fast-bowler to complete 600 scalps in the longest format of the game.

There was a delayed start to the proceeding due to rains.

The Green Caps were 100-2 in their second innings at stumps on day four.
Pakistan still need another 210 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

Captain Azhar Ali is unbeaten at 29 while his deputy Babar Azam is not out on four.

James Anderson is one wicket away from becoming the first pacer in Test cricket history to take 600 wickets.
