In 143 Years History of Test Cricket, Only Imran Khan Has This Record
Imran Khan is considered as one of the greatest all-rounders in the history of cricket.
Apart from being a great cricketer, the current Prime Minister of Pakistan was also best known for his extraordinary leadership qualities. It was Imran Khan’s great leadership that helped Pakistan lift the 50 overs world cup in 1992.
Khan was also known for putting country before personal glory during his playing days. A best example of this is his innings against Sri Lanka in early 90s ,when he was batting on 93 runs not out.
It was the fourth day of the test match and Imran Khan decided to declare the innings without completing his hundred. This gave Pakistan more time to bowl Sri Lanka out and win the test match. But unfortunately, the match ended in a draw.
Pakistan couldn’t win the game but Khan made a record that no one else has been able to make or break in 143 years history of test cricket.
Imran Khan is the only captain in test cricket history to declare the innings with his individual score in the 90s.
In 143 years history of Test cricket, Imran Khan remains the only captain who declared the innings with his personal score in 90s. https://t.co/3Z1xMUS7G0
