Pakistani opener Abid Ali makes yet another historic achievement, becomes first ever Pakistani batsman to achieve the Record
Karachi: Pakistani opener Abid Ali became the first Pakistani to score double century in consecutive matches in his first two Tests on the third day of the second match against Sri Lanka in Karachi on Saturday, GNN reported.
The 32-year-old completed his century with a sweep off spinner Lasith Embuldeniya for two to follow up his 109 in the drawn first Test in Rawalpindi -- his debut Test.
That hundred in the first Test had made Abid the first batsman ever to score hundreds on both Test and one-day debuts.
He scored 112 in his first one-day international, against Australia in Dubai earlier this year.
Abid becomes the ninth batsmen and first Pakistani in the history of Test cricket to achieve the feat of consecutive hundreds in their first two Tests.
