Yousuf marks an impressive return

Mohammad Yousuf marked his return to the Pakistan Test side with a well made unbeaten 40 on a rain-shortened opening day of Pakistan's tour match against Worcestershire.

Only 28 overs was played in the whole day as Pakistan managed to score 112 runs with the loss of 2 wickets.

Pakistan had won the toss but start was delayed by an hour or so due to shower.

Yasir Hameed and Azhar Ali opened the innings and Ali received an early let-off when he was put down in the gully by David Wheeldon off left-arm paceman Jack Shantry while on 10. But Ali was soon dismissed run out for 19 after finding himself caught at the same end as Hameed.
Hameed was the second wicket to fall for Pakistan. He fell after scoring 27 runs, a sharp catch by Vikram Solanki at first slip off Chris Russell's third delivery.

However, Yousuf along with Umar Amin (21no) made sure Pakistan lost no more wickets. Yousuf finished 40 not out off 54 deliveries which included 8 boundaries.

Pakistan are 2-0 down in the ongoing four match Test series against England and must win at the Oval next week to keep alive themselves in the series.
