England A on course
Monday 04 December 1995
Jason Gallian and Ian Salisbury showed the England selectors what they are capable of during a 197-run partnership in Rawalpindi yesterday. Their captain, Nasser Hussain, then hurried things along in the final session with an unbeaten 40 off 48 balls to put England A 67 runs ahead at the end of the fourth day of the second "Test" as they pushed for the victory that would give them a winning 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Gallian, who played two Tests against the West Indies last summer, compiled his 146 not out in conditions that were not ideal for fast scoring. His 306-ball innings, including two sixes and 12 fours, was a triumph of stamina and skill, while Salisbury's 86 was a career- best after coming in as a nightwatchman.
