Younis khan became Pakistan leading run scorer in tests when he spanked Moeen Ali over mid on for a six. He went past the great Javed Miandad and Inzamam ul haq to claim the top spot for Pakistan in tests. He now has the most runs, most hundreds and highest average for Pakistan on the all time list of Pakistan’s top ranked test batsmen.
People from all over the world congratulated Younis on this amazing achievement and expressed their delight through media and twitter in particular. Let’s look at some of them.
