Younis rescues Pak

Pakistan's most accomplished batsman Younis Khan completed an unbeaten double century on Friday to turn the course of the first Test against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club.

At the close Zimbabwe, set 342 for victory when Pakistan declared their second innings closed at 419 for nine, were 13 for one after Tino Mawoyo was dismissed lbw for two by off-spinner Saeed Ajmal.

Younis brought up his 200 with a six during an unbeaten 88-run partnership for the final wicket with Rahat Ali, who struck a swashbuckling 35 from 40 deliveries. He spent just over 10 hours at the crease, swinging the balance of the Test.
