The third and final Test between England and Pakistan is underway, but James Anderson - who was held up by the weather on the fifth day at the Ageas Bowl - has finally achieved his feat. Anderson has become the first pace bowler to reach 600 in Tests.

Anderson's 600th victim was Pakistan Test skipper Azhar Ali. Anderson got Azhar Ali from the back of a length. Ali was trying to adjust, but the ball flew straight to Joe Root at first slip. Ali got dismissed for 31 as the Anderson held the ball high to acknowledge the applause. 

Anderson had Abid Ali lbw on Monday evening to move to 599 Test wickets but was denied the opportunity to push for 600 due to bad light, then the rain.

The Lancashire bowler would have reached the milestone earlier if it had not been for four dropped catches in the match - all of which came in the space of 37 balls.

As for the clash, England are 1-0 up and are set to record their first Test series victory over Pakistan in 10 years.

The victory will also help them in chasing points in the World Test Championship and would see them climb above Australia into second place.
