Mohammad Huraira, a nephew of Pakistan's former captain Shoaib Malik, created history on Monday (December 20) when he became the country's second youngest cricketer to score a triple century, in the ongoing Quaid-er-Azam Trophy.
Huraira, who is playing in his debut first-class season scored the triple ton at the age of 19 years and 239 days. Huraira has become the second youngest cricketer in Pakistan's first-class history to reach the 300-run mark and the eighth overall to achieve this feat.
This is the 23rd triple ton scored on Pakistan soil with Huraira being the 22nd player overall to score a 300 in Pakistan. It also includes triple hundreds by visiting batsmen -- Mike Brearly, Mark Taylor and Virender Sehwag -- the last two in Tests.
Huraira's 311 not out from 341 balls, which included 40 boundaries and four sixes, came at tea on day three of a last-round match between Northern against Balochistan. He has been in great form for Northern as he has hit three centuries in the season.
Huraira has played for the Pakistan Under-19 team alongside Haider Ali and Rohail Nazir.
