Scorecard

Rain delayed play again at the start of day five in the second Test between England and Pakistan at the Ageas Bowl.

The match is set to end in the draw, having been ruined by the weather with only 96.2 overs possible across the first four days.

England, who lead the series 1-0, are 7-1 in reply to Pakistan’s 236.

An overnight storm left the outfield sodden and, although the rain eased enough to allow four pitch inspections, another was scheduled for 14:20 BST.

Were there to be no further play, it would be the fewest overs bowled in a Test in England since 1931.

The final Test begins on Friday at the same ground.
