Cricket: 2nd Test. End of 4th Day's Play. Pakistan are 95/1 chasing 422 to Win.

Shahid Afridi started with a bang and smashed 59 runs to get Pakistan off to a good start and finish the day at 95/1 chasing 422 to win. Shahid Afridi was out caught by Ganguly off the bowling of Kumble at the fag end of the day. One can't blame Afridi, that's the way he plays, and he has put the match in an interesting position with his fast batting.

Pakistan need 327 runs to win on the final day. India need to take nine wickets to win the test. It will be an interesting day's play tomorrow. Let's see what it has in store. India v Pakistan matches are always exciting and this test has been full of twists and turns, India taking an upper hand, then Pakistan, then again India with Rahul Dravid's batting, and now Pakistan is fighting back.

Shahid Afridi has set up the match. Now Pakistan should go for the chase and India should go for the kill. This match shouldn't end in a draw.

India...1st Innings...407 all out
