PAKvsSL: Abid Ali becomes 1st man to score century on both Test & ODI debut

December 16, 2019


  • Opener Abid Ali became the first man to score hundreds on both Test and one-day debuts as Pakistan’s first home match in the long form of the game since the 2009 attack on the visiting Sri Lanka team ended in a tame draw against the same opponents Sunday.
  • His hundred came in 267 minutes, laced with 11 boundaries, and was the highlight of a Test badly affected by bad weather. Pakistan finished at 252/2, with stylish batsman Babar Azam knocking his third Test century with a boundary off spinner Dilruwan Perera.
  • The second Test is in Karachi starting December 19.
