A rivalry resumes

Coming or going? Yousuf Youhana doesn't quite know what the ball is doing when Irfan Pathan bowls. He had trouble against Pathan's incoming ball in Pakistan last year, and here too Pathan set him up. Pakistan had just passed 100, had lost three wickets, and the innings hinged on the partnership between Inzamam-ul-Haq and Youhana. In his tenth over, Pathan angled them in, in and in. And then out (pun intended). The ball was short of a good length, angled across, and Youhana played at it and got a touch through to the wicketkeeper. Pakistan were 104 for 4, and one of the most interesting battles from the last series had resumed.
