Younis becomes Pakistan’s highest Test run getter
14 October 2015, Nirapad News: Younis Khan became Pakistan’s all-time leading Test run-scorer, surpassing the great Javed Miandad’s tally of 8832 runs on the opening day of the first Test against England in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
Younis set the new mark when he reached 20 with a huge six off spinner Moeen Ali, crossing Miandad and Inzamam-ul-Haq’s tally in one stroke.
He achieved the milestone in his 102nd Test.
Miandad’s aggregate had stood for 22 years as Inzamam-ul-Haq fell two runs short of equalling the tally in his last Test, against South Africa in 2007.
Inzamam finished with 8830 runs in 120 Tests.
India’s Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most Test runs, with 15,921 in a record 200 matches.
