They were racking up the maidens, although I didn't realise they got a full 20 of them in row in (I lost track at about 14). I'm glad that Sri Lanka won but it's a bit sad at such an astonishingly obdurate effort wasn't rewarded with a draw. There ended up being a lot more play on day 5 than it looked like when the clouds loomed large with Nevill and O'Keefe probably only about 4 or 5 consecutive maiden overs in.

I think it was 25 overs in a row before the game ended with the last wicket. From over 63 to 88.3. I didn't watch. How many overs did they have left to stumps?

It must be worse to last to the penultimate ball and for the series to be won on that as Sri Lanka did in 2014 at Headingley.

There were quite a few overs left until stumps as they didn't even quite make tea, although there hadn't been much play after tea in the previous days of the test because of rain and bad light so if they'd made tea they might not have had long left at all. Don't know what actually happened weather wise after though, as understandably stopped paying attention.

The Sri Lankans were also getting the overs in like you wouldn't believe, hardly bowing any pace, even with the second new ball.

Jimmy now has 50 wickets against Pakistan. He has at least 50 wickets against the main 7 test match countries. Only 20 of his wickets have come against Bangledesh and Zimbabwe. Only Murali has 50 against all 9 test playing nations.

I saw that statistic on Sky. As statistics go, it's pretty meaningless.

Only fast bowler to have done so.

Also only fast bowler to have taken 35+ wickets in 8 consective years. Needs one more wicket to make it 9 years.

37 Attempts without a century stand for England in their second innings, before the unbeaten 120-run stand between Alastair Cook and Alex Hales at Edgbaston. The last century stand in the second innings was in March 2013, when Cook and Nick Compton added 231 against New Zealand in Dunedin. Since then, in 37 attempts, England's average opening stand in second innings was 22.75, poorer than all teams except Zimbabwe and India in this period.

24 Innings since England last had a century stand for the first wicket, when Cook and Moeen Ali added 116 against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi last year. It is also the first century stand in 18 partnerships between Cook and Hales.

136 Overs that Pakistan's first innings lasted, their second longest in their last 15 Tests in England. The last time they batted longer was at Headingley on the 2006 tour, when they scored 538 in 141.4 overs.

14 Instance of both the England openers passing 50 in a Test innings against Pakistan. The last such instance was almost exactly a decade ago, in August 2006, when Andrew Strauss and Marcus Trescothick both passed 50 in England's second innings of the Headingley Test.

9 Instances of Pakistan taking a first-innings lead of 100 or more against England in England, before today's effort: five times when batting first, and four times when batting second. In these nine Tests, Pakistan have won four and drawn four, while one was forfeited, at The Oval in 2006.

14 Fifty-plus scores for Misbah-ul-Haq after the age of 40, the third best in Test history. He is within one such score of equalling Patsy Hendren's 15, while Jack Hobbs is the all-time leader with 19 fifty-plus scores in Tests after turning 40.

3 Century opening stands in Tests in 2016, of which this unbeaten 120-run between Cook and Hales is the highest. The average opening stand in Tests this year is 28.44, the lowest in any calendar year since 1963.

5 Instances of Younis Khan scoring between 25 and 31 in his last six Test innings. His scores during this period are: 31, 25, 33, 28, 1, 31.

2/358 Yasir Shah's bowling figures since his ten-wicket haul in the first Test at Lord's.

Most runs and wickets in 2016. We are the top of the lists because we have played more Tests but some nice averages there.

W5 D2 L2 so far...

Bairstow apparently already has more runs in a calendar year than any other England wicketkeeper.

Woakes 23 wickets in a home series vs Pakistan is apparently best by an Englishman - one test to go (TMS).

Not to mention that he has made more runs and more centuries and has a better average than superstar Joe Root. And from fewer innings.

ODI Batsmen who average over 50.00 (50+ games)

1 de Villiers 53.63
2 Bevan 53.58
3 Amla 51.97
4 Kohli 51.51
5 Trott 51.25
6 Dhoni 51.25

Trotts 50* just reminded me of a batsman that others could bat around. A strike rate of 77.06 these days wouldn't do, although Rayudu does alright with a s/r of 76.28 (34 games 50.23).

Three hundreds in his last 4 list a matches is reasonable from Trott.

Starc becomes the fastest bowler to 100 ODI wickets in his 52nd match beating Mushtaq who did it in 53 matches, 21 years ago.



The first England bowlers to 100 wickets were Gough and Broad in 62 matches.
