Now this is why that scorecard looks so hot..

* Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan put up 319 run partnership. Its the sixth highest for the third wicket for Pakistan but is the highest for any wicket at Lahore.

* Younis Khan got out for 199. Five others in the history has got out at that mark. But Younis is the first to get runout. Younis is India's main woe as he has scored 707 runs against them in four tests at an average of 117.83

* Afridi scored his century in just 78 balls. Ninth fastest century in Tests.

* Kamran Akmal scored his centruey in just 81 balls and the highest by a wicket keeper in Tests.

* Afridi smacked an Harbhajan over in this fashion – [6-6-6-6-2-1]. Its the second highest runs scored in an over.

Now lets wait and see what the Indian batting order has to offer.
