Younis Khan is on top of the records chart in Pakistan’s cricket history. He is the leading run-getter for Pakistan in Tests and he has scored the most centuries for the team in Tests. At the age of 38, Younis smashed yet another century as Pakistan seized the initiative in the fourth Test against England at The Oval.
During his 32nd century, Younis achieved a unique feat as he bettered Sir Donald Bradman, the greatest batsman in cricket. Here are some of the achievements by Younis after the end of play on day two
39 – The number of international centuries by Younis Khan (both ODIs and Tests combined), putting him level with Mohammad Yousuf. Younis has 32 centuries in Tests and seven in ODIs while Yousuf had 24 centuries in Tests and 15 in ODIs.
1 – The number of times Younis Khan has been dismissed in the nervous nineties in Tests, which is the least by a Pakistani batsman. Only Sir Donald Bradman has a better record with 0. Bradman never got out in the 90’s in Tests
30 – Consecutive times Younis Khan has converted a score of 90-plus into a hundred, which is the most by any batsman. He bettered the mark set by Bradman, who did this 29 times. Younis was last dismissed in the 90’s in 2001 against New Zealand in Auckland
4 – Number of centuries by Younis against England in Tests, putting him joint-second in the list among Pakistani batsmen. Mohammad Yousuf has six centuries against them while Saleem Malik also has four against them.
