The Pakistan captain came out to bat at number five after the visitors lost Younis for 18 runs after being trapped in front of the stumps by Jason Holder.
Pakistan resumed second day’s play at 169/2 when Younis and opener Azhar Ali came out to bat and carried forward the proceedings. The former captain continued with his disappointing run in this series as he was undone cheaply but Azhar Ali notched up yet another hundred during the course. This was his 14th Test ton of the career.
Misbah came in at number five but extracted over 40 balls to get off the mark. Pakistan went into lunch at 227/3 with Ali at 122 and Misbah on 8. Earlier, on first day, Babar Azam too chipped in with a half century.
The three-match series is equally poised with the two teams have a win apiece under belt. The decider is Misbah and Younis’ last Test match of the career as the two batsmen will hang their boots on the conclusion of the series and this third Test match against West Indies.
