Cricket: Ijaz hits back after Streak's landmark

HEATH STREAK became the first Zimbabwe bowler to take 100 Test wickets as Ijaz Ahmad's 87 and an unbeaten 74 by Yousuf Youhana helped Pakistan reach 272 for 6 on the first day of the first Test in Peshawar yesterday.

Streak reached his century in his 25th Test when he had Azhar Mahmood caught behind by Andy Flower for 11.

Ijaz's belligerent knock off 128 balls included 13 boundaries and a six while Yousuf amassed a sedate, Test-best 74 before fading light stopped play with four overs remaining.

The two batsmen shared a 118-run fourth-wicket stand to lift Pakistan from 92 for 3 before a mistimed pull brought an end to Ijaz's entertaining innings.
