During the course of the first Test against Australia at Dubai, Younis Khan equalled the record for the most number of hundreds by a Pakistan batsman, and then went on to break the record in the same Test. Khan began the Test with 24 hundreds, and his twin tons in the match took his tally to 26, one above Inzaman-Ul-Haq. Khan now has 26 Test hundreds in 92 Tests at an average of 52.4. He has scored 7819 runs with a highest of 313. Apart from his hundreds, he also has 28 fifties to his name. Here’s a look at the other Pakistani batsmen with most hundreds, after Khan.


Inzaman-Ul-Haq: Inzamam played 119 Tests, and scored 8829 runs at an average of 50.1 with 25 hundreds and 46 fifties. Inzaman had a highest score of 329 and remained not out on 22 occasions during his illustrious career.

Mohammad Yousuf: He played 90 Tests and scored 7530 runs with the help of 24 hundreds and 33 fifties. Yousuf has a highest score of 223 and averages 52.2. He has been unbeaten on 12 occasions during his career. The chances of him adding to the numbers are remote.


Javed Miandad: He played 124 Tests and scored 8832 runs with 23 hundreds and 43 fifties. Miandad averaged 52.5 during his career with a best of 280 not out. Miandad was unbeaten on 21 occasions in his Test career.


Saleem Malik: The former Pakistan captain, who is unfortunately remembered among those being banned for their involvement in match-fixing, is also in the list. He played 103 Tests for Pakistan and scored 5768 runs at an average of 43.6 with 15 hundreds and 49 fifties. Malik had a highest Test score of 237, and was unbeaten 22 times during his career.
