Stats: Pakistan’s Younis Khan breaks record of Don Bradman
Legendary Pakistan batsman Younis Khan is on the top of the records chart in Pakistan’s cricket history. He is the leading run-getter for Pakistan in Test cricket and he has scored the most centuries for the team in Tests. Younis is now 38, currently touring England with Pakistani team. In the fourth Test of the five-match series he scored his 32nd hundred, a unique feat as bettered Sir Donald Bradman, the greatest batsman in cricket history.
Here are some of the achievements by Younis after the end of play on day two:
39- The number of international centuries scored by Younis Khan (both ODIs and Test combined), putting him level with Mohammad Yousuf. Younis has 32 hundred in Test and seven in ODI, highest by a Pakistani batsman while Mohammad Yousuf had 24 hundred in Test and 15 in ODI cricket.

30 – Younis Khan never failed to convert a 90’s into a hundred, which is the highest by a batsman. He broke the record set by Don Bradman, who held the previous record of converting 90s into hundred in consecutive 29 times. Younis last dismissed for 90’s in 2001 against New Zealand in Auckland.
4 – With this fourth Test hundred on day two Younis has now four hundred against England which is the joint second hundred. He matched the record of Saleem Malik. The record highest number of hundred against England by a Pakistani batsman is held by Mohammad Yousuf who has six hundred against England.
