Sarfaraz Ahmed scored a double century

Sarfaraz Ahmed scored a double-century. Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former captain of the national team, broke the record by scoring a double century in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman, Sarfraz Ahmed, continued his prolific form with a record-breaking double century against Lahore Whites during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2023-24 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

The Karachi Whites captain completed his second double-century in first-class cricket. He scored his 16th first-class century and his second century in the current Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season.

 


It is a historic occasion that five different batsmen including Khurram Manzoor, Asad Shafiq, Imad Alam, Ramiz Aziz, and Sarfraz scored centuries in a single innings.

This feat set a new domestic record in Pakistani cricket, the first in the history of the country’s domestic cricket where five centuries were scored in a single innings, compared to five times in FC cricket at the international level.

In the test match between Karachi Whites and Lahore Whites of the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Karachi Whites set a new record by scoring five centuries in one innings for the first time.

Karachi Whites’ Khurram Manzoor, Imad Alam, Asad Shafiq, Rameez Aziz and Sarfaraz Ahmed scored centuries in first-class cricket, including the fifth time in Test history that 5 centuries were scored in an innings.

Remember that earlier in 1945 in Ranji Trophy against Mysore Holkar had 6 centuries, in 1901 New South Wales scored 5 centuries against South Australia in Sheffield Shield.

In 1955, Australia against West Indies and in 2001, Pakistan scored 5 and 5 centuries in an innings of a Test match against Bangladesh.
