by Rajneesh Gupta


Scorecard:Pakistan v Bangladesh
Player:Yasir Hameed

Pakistanís Yasir Hameed became only the second batsman in Test history to score two centuries in a Test on debut when he followed his first innings 170 with match winning 105 in the second against Bangladesh at Karachi. The only other batsman to perform this feat is West Indian Lawrence Rowe who scored 214 & unbeaten 100 against New Zealand at Kingston in 1971-72. Hameedís match aggregate of 275 runs is also the third highest by a batsman making his Test debut.
