Younis’ hour


Younis’ hour

KINGSTON – Pakistani stalwart Younis Khan struck yet another half-century in his illustrious career to join the 10 000-run club, but was one of two wickets to fall in the last hour, as West Indies fought their back into the opening Test on the third day yesterday.

The 39-year-old struck a solid 58, Babar Azam top-scored with 72 and opener Ahmed Shezad hit 31 as Pakistan ended the day at Sabina Park on 201 for four – 85 runs behind on first innings.

With Younis and Azam involved in a 131-run, third-wicket stand, the visitors appeared to be taking a strong grip on the game but fast bowler Shannon Gabriel (two for 37) struck twice in successive overs to remove both batsmen.

Earlier, West Indies were dismissed 286 after resuming from their overnight 278 for nine. Captain Jason Holder, who started the day on 55, finished unbeaten on 59, including seven fours and two sixes, off 75 balls. (CMC)
