Ind vs. Pak, 3rd Test, 2nd Day

Inzi was out at 184 securing himself an average of 75 in this series. Younis Khan proved his detractors wrong by scoring a massive 267. His average in the series is now 85. I was quite harsh when he failed to reach double digits in the 1st Test but now, after two big centuries in two matches, it seems the confidence in the future captain has weight.

I said yesterday:

Kudos to Younis Khan for delivering another century in the series. He now has three single digit scores, and two massive centuries in this series. It seems that when Younis gets settled, he plays effortlessly. Otherwise, he's gone very quickly.

Today Younis Khan stated:

On the difficult parts of the innings
The first and the last few balls are always difficult. If you carry yourself through those, you're OK. And I managed to get through those first few overs today.

[Emphasis mine]

So, unlike Afridi for example, when Younis gets settled, he's very difficult to get out.

India have all ten wickets in hand. The Pakistani bowlers can show their skill tomorrow if India is forced to follow-on. After two days, the most likely result looks to be a draw.
