Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik continued to destroy England’s bowlers on day two of the first Test in Abu Dhabi.
The 33-year-old, making his first Test appearance in five years, walked back to the pavilion at Tea on 231 not out, having faced 400 balls.
Malik, smashed 24 fours and three sixes, including this huge maximum off the bowling of Adil Rashid, whose figures were a disastrous 163/0 at the end of the game’s fifth session.
