Karachi: The former test captain Miandad was delighted to see his record being broken by Younus Khan and commented ‘Younus becomes the highest run getter by breaking my 22 years old record in test cricket for which I am extremely happy’.
Miandad said Younus is a great batsman who knows and understands all the skills of the game, he always keeps trying to give his best. He said cricket is known for setting and making records. Its my wish and desire to watch Younus achieve the 10,000 runs mark and become the first Pakistani player to do so. If Younus keeps himself fit there is no doubt he can succeed in achieving this land mark.
The former test captain and great batsman of his time Hanif Muhammad says Younus, already a man of records has also broken Miandad’s record for which I am happy but I would be much delighted to watch him become the first Pakistani to score 10,000 runs in test cricket.
He said Younus is in his best form and has another year and a half to play cricket and if there are no hurdles created in his way he can set a record of being Pakistan’s highest ever scorer. He said senior players should be allowed to play and Younus Khan’s record can also be surpassed, provided you have lot of determination, patience and courage. Presently we have in our National team players like Hafeez, Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq who have the capacity to build new records.
