Namaste and Welcome to the TimesOfIndia.com’s live coverage of Day 4 of the second Test at the Aegis Bowl in Southampton between England and Pakistan.
brief,day 3:
The rain meant no play between England and Pakistan in Southampton on the third day of the second Test in an already paused match due to inclement weather on Saturday.
Play should have resumed at 11:00 pm local time (1000 GMT), but light rain meant that the pitch and square remained completely covered, then over the entire beam with floodlights.
If the players were on the field, the game would have continued well. The rain was only like spitting.
But, no spectators were present in the series being played behind closed doors because of coronoviruses, then the floodlights were switched off in a clear sign, with umpires deciding that no action would take place before lunch.
Authorities made three inspections earlier in the afternoon, with rain now barely coming over Hampshire’s Aegis Bowl headquarters, leaving the game without throwing a ball for 5.16pm (1616 GMT) on the day.
Pakistan are down 1-0 in the three-match series, will resume 223-9 on Sunday in their first innings.
Mohammad Rizwan batted with great skill and resolved in favorable conditions for the storm, swing, to be 60 not out at the end of the second day where only 40 overs were played.
With the dog-tailed Mohammed Abbas (two from 20 balls), the wicketkeeper took Pakistan for the ninth wicket after crossing the 200, as they came in with the struggling tourists at 176-8.
This was Rizwan’s second half-century in eight career Tests after 95 against Australia in Brisbane in November.
Pakistan also played opener Abid Ali (60) and Babar Azam (47) in a big knock when conditions were poor against the batsmen.
Meanwhile an in-form Stuart Broad became England’s first bowler since off-spinner Graeme Swann 11 years ago, taking at least three wickets in seven consecutive Test innings as a return of 3-56 in 25 overs.
Broad has taken 25 wickets in four Tests at an average of 12.88 so far this season.
In this match, Vijay will see England achieve their first series win over Pakistan since 2010.
