Pak vs SL: Saud Shakeel creates Test history – SUCH TV


After scoring a fifty in the first innings of the ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo, Saud Shakeel became the first-ever batter in history to score a half-century in each of the first seven Tests of their career.

Previously, India’s Sunil Gavaskar, Pakistan’s Saeed Ahmed, West Indies’ Basil Butcher and New Zealand’s Bert Sutcliffe scored half-centuries in each of the first six Tests of their career.

Shakeel also bagged the award for Player of the Match in the first Test, which Pakistan won by four wickets in Galle last week, after he made a career-best 208 not out in the first innings.

The left-hander is also only the second Pakistan batter to hit a double ton in his first Test match away from home.
