LONDON: Pakistan’s resistance on the second day of Oval Test continues as Asad Shafiq completes his century, first one of the tour so far.
Asad has been very patient throughout the inning so far. To support the statement, it is enough to state that he waited 16 ball from going 99 to 100.
Asad had a tremendous pressure on him after failing at Edgbaston, and being promoted up the order.
But he did not let his skipper down who trusted his skills and gave him the rescue job.
Due to his resistance, Younis too felt relief and scored a worthy half century. The duo added 150 runs for the fourth wicket before Shafiq got caught by Broad at short mid-wicket. A stunner of the catches.
This is how a blissful of innings came to end. England get much needed wicket they needed so restlessly.
With this score, Pakistan are 277/4, still trailing 51 runs.
Younis Khan, who has sought his lost form, is on 75 not out, while Misbah is the new man in.
