Shan Masood registers multiple records in County Championship

Shan Masood

Pakistani left-handed batter Shan Masood has been in great form during the ongoing County Championship. He is representing the Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

Masood has already written his name in the history books as he created multiple records. The 32 year old scored his second double century of the Championship against Leicestershire.

Shan Masood scored 219 off 268 to score his second consecutive double hundred, thus becoming the first-ever Pakistan batter to score back-to-back double centuries in the championship.

He is also the second Pakistani batter to score back to back double tons in first-class cricket. Previously, Arshad Parvez had scored 243 (vs Baluchistan) and 236 (vs MCB) in BCCP Patron’s Trophy in 1978.

Furthermore, Shan Masood is only the second Asian batter to achieve this feat. Before him, Nawab Iftikharuddin scored back-to-back double tons in the county championship in 1933 against Worcestershire.
