New Delhi. Young batsman Ehsan Ali, who was dropped from the Pakistan team, became the 9th batsman in the country to score a triple century in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. Ali has been a part of Pakistan’s T20 team on Bangladesh tour. After this, however, he was dropped from the team. The player, who represented the Sindh team in domestic cricket, scored an unbeaten 303 off 385 balls in a day-night match against Central Punjab at the Gaddafi Stadium. This match played with pink ball ended in a draw.
The record of making the highest score in Pakistan’s domestic cricket is in the name of Hanif Mohammad. He scored 499 runs for Karachi in 1958-59. For Pakistan, Hanif Mohammad (337), Inzamam-ul-Haq (329), Younis Khan (313) and Azhar Ali (302 *) have scored triple centuries in Test cricket. Although Pakistan’s captain and star batsman Babar Azam has played 71 first class matches but he has failed to score a triple century. Babar’s highest score is 266. In Test cricket, Babar has not even touched the 150-run mark so far.
27-year-old Ehsan Ali has played two ODIs for Pakistan in which he scored 36 runs. Ali did not get a chance to debut in the home ODI series against Bangladesh last year but was dropped after just two matches.
