BRISBANE: Asad Shafiq scored a thrilling century as Pakistan put up a spirited resistance to Australia on Sunday, frustrating the hosts’ attempts to wrap up the first Test with a day to spare.GARRY SOBERSShafiq dashed for three runs off a cut shot in the final over of the fourth day to reach his 10th Test century off 140 balls in the day-night match at the Gabba.Pakistan’s fight back was mainly led by Asad Shafiq who is unbeaten at 100. This is his overall 10th century and, of all, his 9th while batting at number 6 in a Test, the most in a Test match by a batsman playing at number 6.Asad surpassed great Garry Sobers with century against Australia. The West Indian legend had scored Eight centuries while batting at number 6.Earlier, Starc scattered his stumps with an inswinger in the 88th over, his third wicket, and Jackson Bird had Amir caught behind in the 107th over.Younis Khan had also kept the bowlers at bay but was out to a rash shot 30 minutes before the dinner break.The 112-Test campaigner fell to an ill-judged reverse sweep off spinner Nathan Lyon, the ball ballooning off the back of his bat for Smith to take an easy catch.Misbah was caught behind off Bird for five to complete a low-scoring match after his four in the first innings and Younis followed just 18 minutes later.Starc persisted with a short-pitched plan after a 90-minute storm delay at tea.It finally paid off when Azhar Ali tried to flick a rising ball down to fine leg, only to edge to Matthew Wade.Azhar faced 179 balls for his 71 and put on 91 for the third wicket with Younis.Younis, out for a first-ball duck in the first innings, took 20 balls to get off the mark with a streaky shot through the slips cordon to the boundary.Australia are defending an unbeaten run of 27 Tests at the Gabba. Their last defeat here was in 1988 at the hands of the West Indies.
TRINIDAD and Tobago women’s team started their Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 Cup on a winning note, beating Guyana by 69 runs yesterday at the National Stadium, Providence.It was a complete performance from the visitors, as they first piled up a challenging 221 before their bowlers did the finishing touches, restricting the Guyanese to 152.Earlier, an unbroken seventh-wicket stand of 74 between vice-captain Reniece Boyce and Samantha Bissoon gave the visitors a challenging total. Boyce ended with an unbeaten 65 off 90 balls, inclusive of eight boundaries while Bissoon was left not out on 35 off 29 balls with five boundaries.The visitors lost their way upfront after they were asked to bat first, losing both openers, Felicia Walters and Britney Cooper, to Erva Giddings without scoring, at 2-2.Anisa Mohamed is bowled by Kaysia Schultz (Adrian Narine photos)At that point, Stacy Ann King and Rachel Vincent then put up a fight, adding 51 runs for the third-wicket. The pair tried to keep the innings together, but the innings then suffered a mini collapse, as the visitors lost three quick wickets for 17 runs.Akaze Thompson removed both King (28) and Vincent (17) before Merissa Aguilleira went leg-before to Sheneta Grimmond.Lee Ann Kirby (25) and Anisa Mohammed (20) then staged a spirited fightback, before Kirby went, off the bowling of Plaffiana Millington while Mohammed was removed by Kaysia Schultz. Thereafter, Boyce and Bissoon added some vital runs to the end.The run-chase was not what was expected from the hosts, with Captain Shemaine Campbelle top-scoring with 45, while Grimmond (25), Cherry Ann Fraser (20), Giddings (18), and Millington (10 not out), all reached double figures in a disappointing batting display.Mohammed (3-32) and Felicia Walters (3-22), were the main destroyers.
