Defiant Younus keeps India on a leash. Test Series hangs at 1-0

Three cheers for Younus Khan who hit a very responsible and handy century to help Pakistan draw the second Test against India today. It was unfortunate to see Pakistan crumble in the start of their second innings but Pakistan’s stand-in captain came to the crease and scored an unbeaten 107 under pressure as Pakistan recovered from 78-4 to finish at 214-4 in their second innings, chasing a stiff 345-run target off 81 overs on the fifth and final day.Mohammad Yousuf played the supporting role and was unbeaten on 44 when the game was called off with four overs remaining for the day.

Pakistan, trailing 1-0, now have a chance to square the three-Test series when they clash with India in the third match at Bangalore starting on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Cricinfo is reporting that the Pakistan camp might be bringing in an uncapped player, Abdur Rauf in place of Shoaib Akhter and Sami. Rauf is a right arm medium fast bowler and will be available for the third test starting this coming Sunday if he gets the green light. This is bad news. We need to bring out the best in the coming test to not only win the test series but also leave a good impression on the Indians till next year when they plan to tour Pakistan hopefully.
