Pakistani spinners step in to keep side in match

KOCHI, India, Feb 12 (AFP) - Pakistani spinners Nadeem Khan and Shahid Afridi grabbed five quick wickets after tea to save the tourists from embarrasment in their three-day match here on Friday.

The Indian board president's eleven, a promising 249-5 at tea, collapsed to 282 to gain a slender 35-run first innings lead on the second day.

Pakistan, who made 247-9 declared in their first innings, were 27 for no loss in their second knock by stumps. Saeed Anwar was unbeaten on 10 while Afridi made 15. [more]
