Pakistan’s Test opener, Abid Ali, has joined an elite list of Pakistani batters to score a century and 90 runs in both innings of a Test match. Abid is the seventh Pakistani batter to achieve the feat in Test cricket history and is the first Pakistani batter in seven years to achieve a remarkable landmark.
Previously, the likes of Hanif Mohammad, Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan, Saeed Anwar, Younis Khan, and Mohammad Hafeez had achieved the feat of scoring a 100 and 90 in both innings of a Test match.
Abid scored 133 in the first innings and 91 in the second innings as Pakistan convincingly beat Bangladesh by 8 wickets in the first Test of the series. Abid was named as player of the match for his brilliant performance in the Test match.
The 34-year old led the run-chase for Pakistan in the fourth innings and scored an exquisite half-century, his third in a short career. Previously, Abid had scored an exceptional century in the first innings to register his fourth Test century.
