Younis Khan has been a reason for much pride for Pakistan due to his amazing performance in cricket. Most recently, Khan added another feather to his cap by becoming the first ever Pakistani cricketer to score 10,000 runs in Test cricket.
Khan reached this great achievement by scoring his 23rd runs in his innings in the ongoing Test match against West Indies on Sunday. This series is also the last of his career, making the cricketer end his International career with a bang.
Khan holds multiple records in his cricketing career-he was Pakistan’s leading scorer in October 2015 during Abu Dhabi test against England by surpassing cricket legend Javed Miandad’s score of 8832 runs record. He also became the first Pakistani to score 9000 runs in Test cricket during the same Test series in Dubai.
According to the records, Khan has now entered the record of being the first Pakistani and only the 13th ever cricketer to score 10000 runs in the longest and most prestigious format of the cricket game.
Ever since he started his career, Khan has been a star right from the beginning. He launched his cricketing career with a century on his debut against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi. He also holds the record of most centuries for Pakistan in Test cricket, with 34 scores in triple figures in 115 games.
One of the unique records that Khan holds is that he is the only batsman in the world to score a century in 11 different countries.
The records and achievements in Khan’s resume are un-ending and Pakistani cricket will surely miss a star in its team once he retires.
