On the second day of second and final cricket Test at Abu Dhabi against Pakistan, Australia in their first innings were 22 for 1 at stumps on Friday.

Batting first, Pakistan declared their innings at 570 for 6. Younas Khan made brilliant double century and Captain Misbah-ul-Haq also hit a century.

 

Forty years ago Muhammad Ali added to his already legendary status by beating George foreman in the 'rumble in the jungle' to win the world heavyweight boxing title for a second time; he lost it again, but retook it for the third time in 1978.

The fight was originally scheduled for September 25, but foreman's eye was cut in training so it was postponed to October 30. Ali had won the title in 1964 as Cassius Clay when he beat Sonny Liston, then lost it to Joe Frazier, who was himself defeated by foreman. In Kinshasa, Ali took the title back by knocking foreman out in the 8th round. For the people of Kinshasa, even 40 years on, the fight was an inspirational moment, particularly for young boxers such as junior Ilunga Makubu.
