Pakistan cricket team played a sensational inning against Australia to draw the second Test at Karachi’s National Stadium, with skipper Babar Azam smashing an amazing century.
Through their impressive innings, Pakistan registered a record of playing the most overs by any team to draw a five-day Test match.
Pakistan played 1030 balls in the fourth innings to draw this game — with Babar (196), Abdullah Shafique (96), and Mohammad Rizwan’s (104) sensational knocks restricting Australia from winning the match.
Earlier, England had played 165 overs to draw against South Africa in 1995, while Australia played 124 overs in 1950 against the same team — Proteas — to draw.
Pakistan are the first team in five-day cricket and the only second team in overall Test matches to play 1000+ balls in the fourth innings to save a Test match.
The other team to do so was England that played 218.2 of 8-balls over against South Africa in the time-less Test match played in 1939.
