Pakistan Is Leading Australia by 130 Runs in Second Day of Test

July 22 (Bloomberg) -- Pakistan leads Australia by 130 runs at lunch on day two of their second Test as the bowlers failed to pressure the Pakistani batsmen at Headlingley in Leeds.

Pakistan was on 218-5 at the break in its first innings after Australia was all out for 88. Pakistan, which has benefited from 26 extras including 8 no balls, started the day leading by 60 runs.

Shoaib Malik, on 17, and Kamran Akmal, on 11, were batting at lunch. Umar Akmal and Umar Amin lost their wickets for 21 and 25, respectively, during the morning.

Australia had won the toss and decided to bat, having won the first match in the two-game series by 150 runs.

The matches are being held in England because of security concerns over staging games in Pakistan. It counts as a home series for Pakistan.
