The second day's play of second Test match between India and Pakistan was marred by frayed tempers.

Lahore: Frayed tempers during second day's play of second Test match between India and Pakistan marred the sporting spirit that has characterised all the matches between the arch-rivals till now. A possible confrontation between Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq and India's ace spinner Anil Kumble in the final session of the play was averted with the intervention of stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar. Frustrated by the inability to get breakthroughs as also by few appeals being turned down, Kumble threw back the last ball of his over to the keeper, forcing Inzamam to duck down. The day also saw India's wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel being summoned by match referee Ranjan Madugalle for excessive appealing. The two umpires Steve Bucknor and Simon Taufel reported Patel to the referee after the day's play, which witnessed quite a few close decisions being awarded in batsmen's favour. (PTI)
