Cricketer Shoaib Malik Ill After Scoring Double Century!
After hitting his highest score in test cricket, Shoaib Malik fell ill due to the scorching heat in Abu Dhabi. He was given a glucose drip to treat his dehydration and is fine now. His innings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium lasted more than 10 hours where he scored a whopping 245 runs after facing 420 balls.
This was Shoaib Malik’s first test match in five years and his double ton has put Pakistan in a commanding position on the second day of the first Test against England. He also broke the record of fifth-wicket partnership and shared 248 with fellow centurion Asad Shafiq (107).

Chasing a mammoth Pakistan first innings total of 523-8, English openers Alastair Cook and Moeen Ali batted firmly to minimize the spell cast in the stadium by the Green Shirts. They made a great start and were 56 without any loss at close of play. Alastair Cook remained not out on 39, while his new opening partner Moeen Ali was unbeaten on 15.
