Cricketing Cliche 27

Held the innings together.

It will no doubt be said of Younis Khan that he "held the innings together" as the (cliche coming up) wickets fell around him. In the morning, he (cliches ahead) carried on from where he had left off, standing firm and holding one end up, though there was a danger that he would run out of partners.

Update: Younis got out as I was typing this. Could this be (two more) a decisive blow, even a turning point?
