Younis Khan becomes the first cricketer ever to score Test centuries in 11 countries
Younis Khan has entered his name in history books as the first cricketer ever to score Test hundreds in eleven countries. Younis Khan made his 34th Test century in the final Test in Sydney on Thursday.
Before Younis, India’s Rahul Dravid had scored centuries against all Test playing nations in ten countries, but Younis has now gone one step ahead of Dravid as he has Test centuries against his name in the United Arab Emirates as well that take his tally to eleven countries.
It is noteworthy that in 206th Test innings, Younis has only been dismissed once in the 90s with 91 against New Zealand in Auckland in 2001. Younis Khan’s innings per Test century ratio is 6.05. He also shares a national record of six double centuries in test cricket with the Javed Miandad.
Younis has scored 9,789 runs in 114 Tests, and is now close to a milestone 10,000 runs in Tests, so far only 12 batsmen ever in Test cricket history have mad that many runs.
