Cricket: Kamran Akmal's Century Helps Pakistan Draw the First Test versus India

1st Test Match, 5th day's play.

Pakistan's wicket keeper Kamran Akmal scored his maiden test century and Abdul Razzaq played a supporting role to frustrate India's bowlers who couldn't take four Pakistani wickets in a day. Razzaq and Akmal shared a 184 runs seventh wicket partnership to take Pakistan beyond a score of 400 and the match out of India's hands and the only likely result was a draw from there on.

Brief Scores:
Pakistan....1st Innings......312 all out
India.......1st Innings.........516 all out
Pakistan.....2nd Innings....496/9 declared
India.......2nd Innings........85/1
Result: Draw

Australia's Adam Gilchrist blazed his way to yet another swashbuckling (no other word for Gilly's batting, like always) almost run a ball century (121 runs of 126 balls 12 fours and 6 sixes) on the 3rd day of the 1st test versus New Zealand. He's an amazing player who always performs when the team needs it the most. A score of 300 for 4 and chances are Gilly won't play, but 200 for 4 and in comes Adam Gilchrist smashes the attack and changes the match. Well played, Gilly! No test match is over till Adam Gilchrist is batting.
