The last time these two sides met at Lord's, in 2006, the result was a high-scoring draw. Five centuries were recorded in the course of the match, with Mohammad Yousuf's fluent 202 topping the list.
Kamran Akmal's keeping appeared much improved at The Oval, but his batting in English conditions remains dire. After scoring 10 and 0, his average against the home team in their own conditions stands at 11.10.
James Anderson is the leading wicket-taker in the series by some distance with 20 - a personal best for him in a Test series. Graeme Swann and Mohammad Amir are behind him with 13 scalps each.
