In the final Test series at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday, England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has completed his century despite being interrupted by rain during the second day of the third and final Test’s first session against Pakistan.

According to details, the England team, 1-0 up in a three-match Test series and wanting to win at the Ageas Bowl to win the first series over Pakistan in a decade, were at 373 runs with 4 outs at lunch today after the morning session postponed by the rain.

After the match was resumed, Crawley and Buttler’s unbreakable bond on the pitch started the match at 332-4. After scoring his maiden Test century on Friday, Crawley was 171 not out and Buttler still on the pitch with 87 runs.

Buttler had moved into the 90s by the time the first of two rain started for two hours and interrupted the match.

Buttler made his 99 runs by forcing shot for four off Mohammad Abbas. The Pakistani wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan came up to the stumps, and Buttler was given out caught behind off Abbas.

But the replays of the shot showed that the ball had missed the outside edge, and the bat had hit the pad instead. In the next ball, Buttler succeeded in making 100 runs with 189 balls.

It should be noted here that it was Buttler’s second century in 47 Tests.
