Pakistan v Australia - Records, stats and more

by   •  Last updated on 2020-04-13 17:09:34

It might have been just a two-test series but even that was replete with some important records being broken. Pakistan, by virtue of their historic win, grab some of the most noteworthy stats and records. Here's a list of the same:

  • The series win was Pakistan's first against Australia in 20 years

  • Victory by 356 runs was Pakistan's biggest ever in Tests. Their previous best was by 341 runs against India in 2006. The margin of defeat was also Australia's third highest in Test history.

  • The win in the second Test also put Misbah alongside Imran Khan and Javed Miandad as Pakistan's most successful Test captains (14 wins each).

  • Younis Khan's tally of 468 runs was the most by a Pakistani batsman in a 2-match series. It was also the most by any batsman in 2-Test series against Australia.

  • Misbah ul Haq registered both - fastest fifty (off 21 balls) and fastest hundred (off 56 balls) - in Test cricket. He shares the record for fastest hundred with Viv Richards.

  • Misbah ul Haq also became the first batsman aged over 40 to hit twin tons in a Test.

  • Azhar Ali and Misbah both scored twin tons in the second Test. This was only the second such instance in Test cricket. Ian and Greg Chappell were the first ever to do it.

  • Enroute to his double ton in the second Test, Younis Khan also became only the 3rd Pakistani to aggregate 8000 Test runs.

  • Younis Khan also became only the second batsman and the first in 90 years to score three tons in three consecutive innings against Australia.

  • In the first Test, David Warner became the first Australian to register 6 consecutive fifty-plus scores in Tests.

  • Younis Khan, while scoring his second hundred in the first Test, also became Pakistan's highest century-maker with 26 Test tons.

  • Before Younis Khan's twin tons in the first Test, no batsman had done that in 40 years against Australia. Within a week two more (Misbah and Azhar Ali) joined the list.

  • Younis Khan also became only the 12th batsman to register a ton against all the other 9 Test countries.

  • Sarfraz Ahmed's 80-ball ton in the first Test was the second fastest by a wicket-keeper batsman in Tests.

  • Sarfraz also became only the second wicket-keeper batsman to register 5 consecutive 50-plus scores in Tests.
