Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul Haq equalled the 28-year-old record for the fastest Test century when he hit one off 56 balls on the fourth day of the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
The record for the fastest Test hundred in terms of balls faced was set by West Indian legend Viv Richards, against England at Antigua in 1986, who also took 56 balls.
Misbah earlier smashed the fastest Test half-century record before lunch, reaching the figure off just 21 balls. That beat the previous record held by South Africa’s Jacques Kallis scored against Zimbabwe at Cape Town in 2004.
Misbah hit two bounadaries off paceman Mitchell Starc to reach his hundred, and punched the air in delight.
Misbah took 74 minutes to reach the mark.
