Mohammad Huraira achieves greatest milestone

Mohammad Huraira has become the second youngest batsman after Javed Miandad to slam a first-class triple century in Pakistan.

Huraira, now being Pakistan’s second-youngest triple centurion, has accomplished the feat at the age of 19 whereas, Miandad did so while he was 17 years and 310 days old.

The 19-year old played the finest inning of 311 off 343 balls. It was the 23rd triple-century on Pakistani soil and Huraira is the 18th Pakistani player to achieve the record.

Notably, Huraira of Sialkot is the son of Shoaib Malik’s half-brother. Although the player is performing in his maiden first-class season for Northern but already is the second-highest run-getter for the team. He owns 878 in 16 innings at an average of 58.53. The mentioned stats include three hundred and three fifties.

Huraira and co will lock horns with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the final of the Quaid e Azam trophy starting from 25th December.

It is pertinent to mention that Huraira has brought the second triple-century of the ongoing season as 303* from Sindh’s Ahsan Ali in November was the first one.

Now, Huraira is the sixth player to convert his maiden first-class hundred to a triple-century. It must be noted that Hamza Ganchi or Karachi Whites, in 2016, was the second-youngest triple centurion in the format but now is placed at third after Mohammad Huraira steps in.

Huraira shot in prominence at the age of 17 when he emerged the top scorer in the PCB Under19 one-day tournament with 342 runs and amassed another 358 runs in the three-day event to end its third-leading run-getter.

He was subsequently picked for the Pakistan squad for the Under-19 World Cup last year and slammed a fifty on youth ODI debut, against Afghanistan. He was declared Man-of-the-Match in that game for his 64 and two catches.
