Younis nurses Pakistan to respectable total of 171

DURBAN, Sep 12 (Reuters) Younis Khan's aggressive batting nursed Pakistan to a respectable total of 171 in an ICC Twenty20 World Cup match against Scotland today.

Younis top-scored with 41, having arrived at the crease in the fifth over after Pakistan had been reduced to 24 for two.

Scotland's disciplined bowling contrasted with Pakistan's reckless batting, which led to several soft dismissals.

Their good showing was a team effort in which medium pacer Craig Wright, 33, led the attack with his return of three wickets for 29.
