first wicket falls... the second test match in the India - Pakistan series. Rudra Pratap Singh bowls a bouncer, Shoaib Malik ducks under the ball but with bat still raised high up in the air, ball hits bat and carries to first slip.

Michael Holding offers this little pearl of wisdom: "That's what we in cricket call the parachute position."

That's a periscope, Michael, not parachute. Different things!
