The ongoing test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has brought luck to Pakistani batsmen as they have created few tons in a single inning and overall too. The records made by them are to be entered in the record book belonging to cricket.
In the ongoing second test match, Abid Ali, Shan Masood, Azhar Ali, and Babar Azam have scored hundreds in the second innings. This is the second time in the history of test cricket that all the four openers have get into their hundreds. The first four were Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Dravid, Wasim Jaffer and Sachin Tendulkar against Bangladesh in 2007.
It's only the second time when the top four batsmen in a team have scored hundreds in a single innings of a Test 👀

When it comes to Babar, interestingly, he has scored all four of his test tons on Sunday. Abid’s and Masood’s 278 runs partnership was the second highest opening stand for Pakistan in tests. Their opening stands however is not the only record achieved but, they have became the third opening duo for Pakistan to hit the centuries at same inning. Abid, the record breaker, is now the first Pakistani to score tons in his first two test matches.
It was the second time that Shaheens managed to score opening stand runs higher than their overall score in the first innings. They only scored 191 runs in the first innings and now have made an awesome comeback with piles of records.
