20 Number of Tests Pakistan have won under Misbah-ul-Haq. Among captains from the subcontinent, only MS Dhoni (27 wins) and Sourav Ganguly (21) have won more Tests than him.

0 Number of Test series Pakistan has lost in the UAE since 2010. They have won four and drawn four of the eight Test series they have played.

1 Number of overseas Tests England have won in their last 15 matches. That was against West Indies at St George's, Grenada, in April earlier this year.

950 Deliveries faced by Alastair Cook in this series; only two other England batsmen have faced more deliveries in a series of three or fewer Tests in Asia. Geoff Boycott played 1079 balls in a three-Test series in Pakistan in 1977-78, and Mike Atherton faced 989 balls in a three-Test series, also against Pakistan in 2000-01. Cook's 950 balls are the second-highest by a visiting captain in a three-match Test series in Asia after Mark Taylor's 981 balls against Pakistan in 1998-99.

3 Number of times Cook has been out stumped in Tests from 218 innings. The last time he was dismissed in this manner before Sharjah was in the 2012-13 Kolkata Test. Among England openers, only Tom Hayward, who was out stumped six times in his career, has more such dismissals. Jack Hobbs, Len Hutton and Mark Butcher are the other England openers to be dismissed stumped three times in Tests.

7-59 Shoaib Malik's bowling figures in this Test - his career-best figures. His previous best in a Test was 4 for 94, against South Africa in Lahore in 2002-03. Also, these are the best match figures by a Pakistan bowler in his final Test match.

51 Number of wickets Zulfiqar Babar has taken in Tests. At 36 years and 326 days (at the start of the Test), he is the oldest Pakistan bowler to complete 50 Test wickets. Mohammad Hafeez, who took his 50th wicket at 34 years and 243 days, was the previous oldest.

8 Number of wickets that fell in England's second innings while Cook was at the crease; Cook was the ninth batsman to be dismissed. It's the first time Cook has batted this deep into a Test innings. It was also the first time that he batted with Stuart Broad in the 87 Tests that they have played together.

76 Number of wickets by Yasir Shah after 12 Test matches. Only Charlie Turner, the Australian seamer who played in the late 1800s, had more wickets after 12 Tests - 80. Tom Richardson, the England fast bowler from the same period, also had 76 wickets after 12 Tests. That makes Yasir's haul the best among spinners after 12 matches.
