The 2nd cricket Test match between India and Pakistan got underway with India leaving out Sourav Ganguly and Ajit Agarkar (due to a ham string injury). Coming in to the Indian team were Zaheer Khan and R P Singh (on debut). India thus went into the Test match with 5 specialist bowlers.

Pakistan dropped Mohammad Sami (running a fever) and brought in all rounder Abdul Razzaq.

On the face of it, the Indian selection looks aggressive.

R P Singh got the break through with the wicket of Shoaib Malik and then Zaheer Khan got into the act getting the wicket of Salman Butt.

However, in a repeat of their partnership in Lahore, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf came together to Pakistan’s rescue with a scintillating partnership.

At drinks on the post lunch session, at the time of this report Pakistan were 198 for 2. Younis Khan was batting on 77*, with Yousuf on 57*.

Looks like another tiring day for the Indian bowlers and fielders.
