Khan debuted in 2000 under the captaincy of Saeed Anwar against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi, where he scored his century against the formidable Lankan bowling attack with likes of Chaminda Vaas, Dnt Zoysa and Muralitharan.

There have only been 12 batsmen in cricket’s history to have scored past 10,000 runs in Tests, Khan being the only Pakistani to have scored 30+ Test hundreds is all set to expand the list.
