England held at bay by captain
Monday 11 December 1995
Asif Mujtaba, the Pakistan A captain, hit an unbeaten 103 at Peshawar yesterday as his side fought back on an interrupted third day in the third "Test" against England A.
On a day when bad light restricted play to just three hours, Mujtaba dominated, despite Dean Headley striking twice in the 25 minutes of action before lunch reducing Pakistan to 112 for 6.
