Younis Khan,Shafiq give Pakistan the edge in fourth Test


LONDON, U.K (TNO) Asad Shafiq and Younis Khan both scored hundreds as Pakistan built a slender first-innings lead on the second day of the fourth Test against England at The Oval on Friday(13 Aug).At stumps, Pakistan were 340 for six, 12 runs in front, with Younis ending a run of low scores with 101 not out after sharing a fourth-wicket partnership of exactly 150 with Shafiq (109).This was Younis’s 32nd century in 108 Tests.It was also the 30th successive occasion that Younis had converted a Test innings of 90 plus into a hundred  one more than Australia’s Don Bradman, widely regarded as cricket’s greatest batsman. Sarfraz Ahmed was 17 not out as Pakistan fought to level the four-match series at 2-2.

Earlier, Shafiq put the pain of a pair last time out behind him in style.Promoted up the order from number six, Shafiq’s century came immediately after he twice made nought during England’s 141-run win in the third Test at Edgbaston.On Thursday, Pakistan  whose close catching has let them down throughout the series  dropped Moeen Ali on nine and then saw him make 108 in a total of 328.
