    You forgot to include one importanct stat about Yousuf.

    Highest runs in Calender year

    Hairat hey,a *forcefully converted muslim* is performing so well that born muslims crickters couldn’t even got close to him.

    November 17th, 2006 3:25 am

    umm, what does his being a “forecefully converted muslim” have to do with how he is performing?

  3. Khalid R Hasan says:

    Also, Yousuf is now second only to Ponting in the ICC Rankings for Test Batsmen, and the only Pakistani ever to get over 900 points. His current standing is truly world class

    Khalid Sahib. Thanks for pointing out Yousuf’s current ICC ranking. I read about it last night after I had finished writing the above article.

    [quote post="418"]Pakistan has the best record at home:

    Do you have an analysis for this fact?
    I happened to read in an old sports mag that in the 1970s and 1980s other countries hated to play in Pakistan becoz they had to play against a 13 member Pakistani team – 11 players 2 local umpires.

    One must not fail to mention that his average in test is twelfth all time high! Another great achievement for Youhana , I mean Yousuf.

    Sajid
    The World record of most number of runs in a calender year by a batsman belong to Viv Richards of West Indies who scored 1710 runs in 1976 at an average of 90.00

    For Pakistan, the record belongs to M Yousuf who in 2006 has already scored 1315 at an average of 93.92 and the season still continues

    Naveen, fact of the day; NO indian umpire in ICC ELITE PANEL.

    the point you raised about Pakistan in 70s is still valid in India:)

  11. November 18th, 2006 6:10 pm

    Nobody can rival Hanif in dominance and Zaheer in class. Ya, statistics are a great pastime.
    Just see Indian batsmen have far better average and runs but Pakistan has performed better as a team against India in tests.

  12. Owais Mughal says:

  14. Owais Mughal says:

    Bangladesh has won their record 7th consecutive ODI
    today. Opposition was Zimbabwe and Scotland but a
    record is a record :)

    Their 6 consecutive wins come against Zimbabwe and 1
    against Scotland.

    Pakistan’s best record of consecutive ODI wins is 10
    established in 1990
