The most unpredictable cricket team of the region had played its 100th Test in 1979, while the opponents were Aussies. The most memorable and magical performance of Sarfaraz Nawaz made Pakistan clinch the otherwise difficult bout, when he finished 9 for 86, including a great haul of 7/1 in 33 balls at Melbourne on 15 March 1979. It remained Pakistan’s best bowling figures in an innings for a long time, before Abdul Qadir bettered it in 1987.He took 9 for 56, against England at Lahore.
it would always be remembered for a powerful double century by Aamir Sohail (205). His tone was the first-ever by a left-handed Opener on that ground. Other salient features included a 5-wicket feat by Wasim Akram.
The green caps received their Test status in 1952 and just after a brief span of 6 years, country’s legendary batsman Hanif Muhammad earned laurels, as he scored maiden triple century, i.e. 337 against West Indies.
On the contrary, it took India a much longer time, as they became a Test nation in 1932 and Virender Sehwag was able to make it at Multan in 2004. His triple century (309) was the highlight of Pakistan’s 300th Test.
