Pakistan batting coach Mohammad Yousuf said neither India icon Sachin Tendulkar nor West Indies legend Brian Lara were able to break his record of the most Test runs scored in a calendar year.

Yousuf amassed 1,788 runs in 11 Tests in 2006, which included nine centuries and three fifties, at an average of 99.33.

The 48-year-old admitted that he can never forget that year as he was in prime form and rewarded for all his hard work.

“I cannot forget 2006 in any way. I can’t say that I did the most runs that year by myself. I tried my best, and Allah blessed me for my hard work,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

“Players like Saeed Anwar, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Younis Khan, Javed Miandad, and Zaheer Abbas came, but I was the one who made the most runs in a calendar year. Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara couldn’t break the record.”

Pakistan are now preparing to play a three-match ODI series against New Zealand, which starts on Monday in Karachi.

It comes after the two teams played two Test matches, both of which ended as a draw.

Pakistan Squad for New Zealand ODI series: Babar Azam (capt), Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Haris Sohail, Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Wasim, Naseem Shah, Agha Salman, Shahnawaz Dahani, Shan Masood, Tayyab Tahir, Usama Mir
