[tag]Pakistan[/tag] started fourth day of the last test match with 511 runs on board and 5 wickets down. The game plan was to bat for 1 and half hour and then give batting to India. Faisal Iqbal was the first man to go down, he made 139 runs on 220 balls. Abdur Razzak made 90 on 141 balls.

India got 607 to win the match. Although it was an uphill task and no team has yet scored so many runs in the last innings of a test match but Indians were expected to bat through the last day. However, things started to look bleak from indians when Dravid was out by Shoaib [tag]Akhtar[/tag]. After that wickets started to fall in regular intervals. Only resistance came from Yuvraj Singh who made 122.

Pakistan won the match by 341 runs, winning the test series 1-0. During the match Pakistan crossed another milestone in history of cricket when the top 7 bastmen scored 50+ runs each.

Although it was really a team effort but Kamran Akmal and Muhammad Asif were the heroes for Pakistan as they gave the excel with bat and ball for their team, when required.
