Pakistan on top
ABU DHABI – West Indies showed early promise but buckled under the weight of the irrepressible Younis Khan’s 33rd Test hundred and a couple of dropped chances, as Pakistan gained an early foothold in the second Test in United Arab Emirates yesterday.
Opting to bat first on a flat track on the opening day of the contest at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, the hosts were comfortably placed on 304 for four when bad light ended play with six overs remaining.
Younis, who missed last week’s historic day/night opening Test in Dubai as he recovered from a bout of dengue, stroked a high-class 127, while captain Misbah-ul-Haq closed on an unbeaten 90. (CMC)
