As the first Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan heads towards the end of day four, and edges towards a draw, new Pakistan captain, Younis Khan, can stand tall. He has saved the day for his side, having made an undefeated triple century – 306 and still counting. Pakistan have already batted for 40 overs more than Sri Lanka, but are still 78 runs short of Sri Lanka’s mammoth 7/644. But who cares? Not Younis Khan for one – it would be a great relief for the match to be safe after chasing leather for two days.
This match concludes tomorrow but before it ends, Australia and South Africa will be underway, closely followed by the 4th Test between the West Indies and England.
