Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis has congratulated opening batsman Abid Ali after he scored a career-best 174 on the third day of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Karachi.
Abid’s knock of 174 came off 281 deliveries and included 21 boundaries and a six.
He was well supported by his opening partner Shan Masood, who made a personal best 135, which came off 198 balls and included seven boundaries and three sixes.
Abid and Masood ended up amassing a 278-run partnership, which was the second-biggest opening stand for Pakistan in Test history.
Abid also became the first Pakistani player to score two centuries in his first two Tests.
