England vs Pakistan (ENG vs PAK) 3rd Test Highlights: England paceman Jimmy Anderson became the first fast bowler to reach 600 wickets in test cricket before the third and final test against Pakistan finished as a draw on Tuesday, leaving the home side to celebrate a second series victory of the pandemic-disrupted summer.
Less than two hours of cricket were played on a rain-affected Day 5, with England taking just two of the eight wickets needed to win the match at the Rose Bowl after Pakistan resumed on 100/2 and trailing by 210 runs. The big consolation was Anderson took one of them, removing Pakistan captain Azhar Ali to join retired spinners Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne and Anil Kumble in the “600 club” in tests.

After a James Anderson masterclass bowled the visitors out for 273 in their first innings, England enforced the follow on. In their second attempt, Pakistan showed enough grit as Shan Masood (18) and Abid Ali (42) started solidly facing the new ball. The day ended after bad light and rain made their entrances and Pakistan were on 100/2 with Azhar Ali (29*) and Babar Azam (4*) in the middle with James Anderson on 599 Test wickets.
