(Khyber News) – Rain has delayed the start of the fifth day’s play of third Test between England and Pakistan in Southampton today.
Pakistan are set to resume their second innings at the overnight score of 100 for 2.
The green caps still need 210 more runs to avoid an innings defeat.
Earlier, James Anderson was left just one shy of becoming only the fourth bowler to take 600 Test wickets as a combination of poor catching, bad weather and some determined Pakistan batting conspired against the England paceman.
Pakistan, following on, were 100-2 — still 210 runs behind England s first innings 583-8 declared — at the close.
Azhar Ali, the Pakistan captain, was 29 not out following his first-innings century and Babar Azam unbeaten on four.
