Cricket: 3rd Test, 1st Day. Good Start for India. Pak 60/2

Pakistan has lost two early wickets on the first morning of the 3rd Test match played at Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore.

Inzamam-ul-Haq won the toss and elected to bat. Yasir Hamid opened with Shahid Afridi and both of them were out within fifteen minutes of the start of the day's play.

Shahid Afridi pushed at a ball outside off-stump and went for a first ball duck, caught by Rahul Dravid at first slip off the bowling of Balaji in the second over of the day's play. Pakistan lost Yasir Hamid in the next over, Irfan inducing an edge to wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik and Pakistan's score read 7/2 in 3 overs.

Pakistan's score is 60/2 in 20 overs. Inzamam-ul-Haq and Younis Khan are at the crease. Pakistan will be hoping for a century from Inzamam in his 100th Test match.

Pakistan made two changes to the team that played the last test. Yasir Hamid replaced Taufeeq Umar to open the batting, and off-spinner Arshad Khan came in place of left-arm fast bowler Mohammed Khalil. India is playing the same team that beat Pakistan in the Kolkata test.
