Anderson on brink of historic 600 wickets: 3rd Test, Day 4 (Southampton)

James Anderson’s quest to become the first ever fast bowler to take 600 Test victims was hobbled by poor catching.

England's push for victory was further obstructed by the poor weather and Pakistan's stubborn resistance.

In the 56 overs that were possible, Stuart Broad had Shan Masood lbw and Anderson removed Abid Ali in similar fashion to move to 599 wickets.

Azhar Ali, who hit an unbeaten century in the first innings, stood firm on 29 not out.

Pakistan 273 and 100 for 2 (Azhar 29*, Azam 4*) trail England 583 for 8 dec by 210 runs.
