Rain has delayed the play on the fifth and final day of the third and final Test between England and Pakistan here at the Ageas Bowl on Tuesday.

According to the details, Azhar XI were 100-2 in their second innings at stumps on day four. Pakistan still need another 210 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

Azhar Ali, the Pakistan captain, is 29 not out following his first-innings century and Babar Azam is unbeaten on four.

James Anderson was trapped in the England dressing room as bad weather delayed his bid to reach 600 Test wickets in the third and final Test against Pakistan at Southampton on Tuesday.

Abid Ali was the top scorer for Pakistan with 42 whereas pace duo of James Anderson and Stuart Broad claimed a wicket each for the home side.

Looking back at Day three, Pakistan were all out for 273 on day three. The Green Caps added 115 runs in the evening session at the expense of five wickets.

England, who had a lead of 310 runs, have enforced the follow on but the second innings could not start due to bat light.

Captain Azhar Ali played a brilliant knock of unbeaten 141 and was well-supported by wicket keeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan, who chipped in with valuable 52.
