The Pakistani nation loves cricket mainly because of the reason that our team is blessed with so many amazing players. We have been blessed with the people like Javed Miandad and Imran Khan to Waseem Akram and Hanif Muhammad in the past but our present is shining the same as we have got players like Younis Khan. What on this earth can be a bigger blessing than this?
Recently, another name is added to the history-making players who did not fail to astound us with his performance. He is no other than Younis Khan, who lately achieved the milestone of 10,000 test carrier runs, and this is indeed a tremendous job done by him, leaving all the nation proud that even legends like Waseem Akram did not stop to congratulate him on this success. Yes, we really are proud of you Younas!
If we only keep our focus on test matches, Younis Khan is one of those people who scored the highest runs in them. He is the only batsman who has made 5 centuries in the 4th innings of a test match, and this is really a splendid effort made by him and he deserves much of our appreciations.
Even when there had been 9 different teams, he was the only Pakistani batsman who scored a century at that time and he is worthy of all the praise because he has scored most hundreds if compared to the rest of the Pakistani batsmen. Moreover, in the test match in 11 different countries, this man made a century that hosted the matches and is known to be the only one in the entire world who has done this job till yet.
He also broke the record of highest numbers of test runs among Pakistani cricketers, two years back and he also broke the record of Javed Miandad’s 8832 runs. He added up making the runs numbered 19 more in the first innings of an ongoing test match which was played against the team of England.
When he was asked about how he feel about his achievement, he said:
“I kept on thinking about crossing Javed bhai, the greatest batsman Pakistan had. I might not be as skillful as he was but I am feeling privileged to cross him. Due credit should also be given to him because he is the one whom I have been following and heeding his advice to make it possible.”
