  • Younus Khan breaks 10,000-run barrier as Pakistan build reply:
  • Younis Khan
    KINGSTON: Younus Khan became the first Pakistan player to complete 10,000 Test runs as his team reached 201 for four in reply to the West Indies first innings total of 286 at stumps on the third day of the rain-affected first Test at Sabina Park on Sunday. Younus moved on from a painfully slow start to get to 58 while Babar Azam stroked 72 in dominating a 131-run third-wicket partnership with the former captain to give the tourists the ascendancy into the final session of the day. However, fast bowler Shannon Gabriel dismissed both in the space of three deliveries to limit Pakistan’s progress and leaving captain Misbahul Haq and Asad Shafiq to continue the workmanlike effort heading into the fourth day. Having confirmed this series as the last before he retires from international cricket, 39-year-old Younus played with exaggerated care at the start of his innings. In contrast, Azam displayed much more aggression and purpose although he once again fell short of a maiden Test century. Possibly mindful of his proximity to the landmark when he started his innings 23 runs away from the cherished goal, Younus took 47 minutes to get off the mark while Azam attempted to keep the scoreboard ticking over at the other end (http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-04-25/lahore/11206/81459)
