    Pakistan will look back at that first Test, they should have won it but just weren’t smart enough.

    Cricket has to eke out every ounce of information from Jimmy because the next generation needs to find out how he’s done it.

    To stay at this level as seam bowler for 17 years is nothing short of incredible. Whatever comes his way, he deserves it.

    Today is about Jimmy Anderson. I know it’s not the most perfect scenario without crowds.

    Whether it will sink in now or tomorrow, it’s an incredible achievement. We’re witnessing something which is truly, truly great.

    Honestly, I didn’t think we’d see any Test cricket this summer.

    But what we have had has been great in so many ways. West Indies and Pakistan deserve huge amounts of credit for coming and touring, and I really hope England can reciprocate someday soon.

    A few people will be thinking why didn’t England just go for the win but I think after 10 weeks, they just want to get out of here. They’ve done what they wanted in this series.

    Jimmy walks off first, holding a stump, and he’s greeted to a standing ovation by his opponents who have gathered on the balcony.

    Waqar stops him for a quick chat, too. Brilliant.

    That’s it, it’s a draw. They had to bowl a ball. It seems a strange low-key way to end.

    And that is that!

    Joe Root bumps fists with Babar Azam and England’s Test summer comes to an end with a first series win over Pakisan in 10 years.

    Great to see Paul Collingwood running the drinks, by the way.

    It’s so windy at the Ageas Bowl – and it might be my eyes, but I think it’s got a bit darker.
