England v Pakistan third test prediction

Little can be taken from the second Test after rain ruined any chance of a result.

Yet England will be pleased with the performances of Zak Crawley and Dom Sibley at the crease.

Pakistan’s Babar Azam will be desperate to prove himself once again after knocking 47 last time out.

But attention here could fall on James Anderson and whether or not he can claim the seven wickets needed to reach 600 in Test cricket.

Prediction: England win (weather permitting)
