Younis Khan equals Pakistani record for most double centuries

Just a day after setting the record for the most number of Test centuries by a Pakistani player, Younis Khan seems to have reached another milestone, this one bigger and mightier. The middle-order legend equalled the record for the most number of double hundreds scored by a Pakistani player to send his team with a commanding lead in the ongoing fourth and final Test of the 4 match series against homeside England at the Oval.

Younis’s magical knock of 218 propelled the Pakistanis to a monstrous first innings total of 542. That was followed by Yasir Shah rattling through the England top order, leaving them 4 down for 88, still a good 126 runs shy from making the visitors bat again. Should Pakistan end up levelling the series 2-2, the biggest creditor would surely be the future Hall of Famer Younis Khan himself.

Younis now has six memorable double centuries to his name in the Test format, the joint most for Pakistan along with the legend himself, Javed Miandad. All of Younis’ double hundreds came against different oppositions, with Pakistan not losing a single of those contests.
