Misbah hits unbeaten century to dash England’s hopes

DUBAI: The first day of second test Match between England and Pakistan ends with PAK 282/4 while Shafiq 46 and Misbah 102* still at crease.

Pakistan captain becomes oldest Test centurion for 43 years by bringing up his ninth Test ton in style with two sixes in final over.Misbah was well backed by Younis Khan and 56 after early hiccups of Shoaib Malik and M.Hafeez.. Well as England bowled at times Pakistan have taken the upper hand. Their tail, though, is long.

Sarfarz Ahmed, who is in next, has a couple of Test centuries in Dubai but two quick wickets and England are right back in this. The pitch should spin earlier than Abu Dhabi, halfway through day three rather than day five in the neigbouring emirate. Wood bowled very well to take 1/26 off 14 overs but it was Misbah’s day.
