Former captain Javed Miandad has all praise for struggling Younus Khan and wishes him in advance to see him break his record and cross the 10,000 mark in Test cricket.
Miandad says my well wishes are with Younus, I want him to break my record and also see him achieve the 10,000 runs mark in test cricket, if he does so I shall be very pleased. He said records in cricket are made to be broken but some are unforgettable. It may be noted that Younus is very close to Miandad’s record of 8832 runs in Test and is only 19 runs away from grabbing this title. The former star achieved this mark through 124 matches while Younus has to his credit 8814 runs with an average of 54.07 runs.
Inzamam ul Haq stands second scoring 8829 runs after Miandad. Younus needs 15 more runs to equal Inzamam before he advances for the first position. Younus who holds various records to his name has already broken Miandad’s single innings record of 150 runs in test cricket.
Younus Khan is the first Pakistani batsman to have crossed Don Bradman’s record of 30 centuries and bring the title to his name. Born on 29th November 1977 in district Mardan of KPK province, the right hand batsman has played 101 test matches with 180 innings and remained undeclared 17 times, his best score is 313 runs and has to his credit 29 half centuries in test cricket.
