At Lahore, October 17, 18, 19, 21, 22

At Lahore, October 17, 18, 19, 21, 22. Drawn. After winning the toss Pakistan compiled a massive 428 for nine declared, which incorporated an innings of 168 not out by Zaheer, his twelfth Test century. Against some fine medium-pace bowling by Azeem, India then collapsed to 156 and had to follow on, 272 behind. However, they were saved by a fine century from Amarnath and a patient 71 from Shastri after Gaekwad had established India's second innings with a stay of 207 minutes. Gaekwad's bat and pad decision, given by umpire Shakoor Rana, resulted in an exchange of words between the batsman and the Pakistani players which forced both umpires to intervene. India were 180 for four when the last day's play began, still requiring 92 to wipe off the deficit, but Amarnath and Shastri took the score to 290 before the fifth wicket fell. Kapil Dev joined Amarnath to see India to a draw, passing 2,500 Test runs during the course of his innings. Gavaskar made his 100th Test appearance.
