The chitrali run machine

Posted by Alta on February 24, 2009

Younus Khan is 306 not out over night and has Lara’s record in his sights,i hope he gets it,i bloody hope he gets it!

I have been a fan of his from the time he was in and out of the team all those years ago and i would tell my friends he should be sent to bat at no 3.He is the best batsmen we have right now and i hope he keeps the captaincy as well,he is a pathan after all and can blow up anytime.

Though he is set to cross many land marks if he is able to score some runs tomorrow morning in Karachi,what ever the case its been a great innings and a match saving one!!

Well done son!! Though i would have been there at the National Stadium as always,i always catch a day or two of a test,even though i wasnt there i saw it live on the tv and ill remember this day for a long time!

Hanif Mohammad’s 337, set in 1958 against the West Indies in Barbados, remains the highest score by a Pakistani, eight runs ahead of Inzamam-ul-Haq’s 329 against New Zealand in 2002.

400: Brian Lara* (WI)
380: Matthew Hayden (Aus)
375: Brian Lara (WI)
374: Mahela Jayawardene (Sri)
365*: Garfield Sobers (WI)
364: Len Hutton (Eng)
340: Sanath Jayasuriya (Sri)
* denotes not out score

Younus’ mammoth innings has so far taken 12 hours and 11 minutes, 545 deliveries and featured 27 boundaries and four sixes with attractive strokeplay on both sides of the wicket.

He brought up his triple ton with a reverse-sweep for three off Muttiah Muralitharan, who finished a gruelling day with figures of 1-165 from 60 overs.

The innings also enabled Younus to became the sixth Pakistani to reach 5,000 runs in Test cricket in his 59th match.
