Younis Khan makes history, Pakistan take the honours - Cricket World TV

We review day one of the first Test between Pakistan and England in Abu Dhabi in our latest cricket TV news report on the day that Younis Khan became his country's leading Test run-scorer.

He may have scored just 38, but raised his bat to the crowd after passing Miandad's mark of 8,832 Test runs, helping Pakistan close the day on 286 for four.

Their score owed plenty to a 168-run stand between Mohammad Hafeez (98) and Shoaib Malik (124 not out).

Malik, playing his first Test since 2010, backed up the outstanding form in One-Day Internationals that helped him earn a recall with 14 fours during a fine innings.

James Anderson took two wickets for England, who struck early to remove Shan Masood, but struggled thereafter.

On a day to forget in the field for them, Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes also took wickets while debutant leg-spinner Adil Rashid fought back after being attacked early on by Pakistan's batsmen.

Nevertheless, he finished with nought for 76 from 17 overs and fellow spinner Moeen Ali was more economical, conceding 73 runs in 19 overs.

England will rue dropped catches while Pakistan will be keen to make sure they can make the most of their opportunity to put the tourists under huge pressure.
