Majestic Misbah set the record books on fire in Abu Dhabi.

40 – Misbah-ul-Haq (40 years and 158 days) also became the first ever batsman aged over 40 to score twin centuries. The previous oldest batsman to accumulate 100 in each innings of a Test was Don Bradman (39 years and 127 days) against India at Melbourne in 1948.

56 Number of balls in which Misbah-ul-Haq got his century – the fastest, in terms of deliveries, equaling Viv Richards.

74 Number of minutes in which Misbah got to his hundred, the second-fastest in terms of time.* Australia’s Jack Gregory scored a century in 70 minutes against South Africa in 1921.

138 The partnership strike rate for Pakistan’s fourth wicket. Misbah and Azhar Ali posted 141 runs from 102 balls. This is the the best rate for a 100-plus partnership by a Pakistan pair, and the third-fastest ever.

1 Number of times that the opposition captain has scored twin hundreds in a Test against Australia – Misbah is the first. Misbah is only the second Pakistan captain, after Inzamam-ul-Haq, to score twin Test hundreds.

2 Number of instances where two batsmen from a team have scored twin hundreds in a Test. Misbah and Azhar scored two hundreds each in this Test. The only previous instance involved Greg Chappell and Ian Chappell, in Hamilton in 1974. There are two other instances of batsman from opposing teams scoring twin hundreds in a Test. Andrew Jones and Asanka Gurusinhna scored twin hundreds in Hamiton in 1991, as did Denis Compton and Arthur Morris during the fourth Ashes Test in 1947.

21 Number of balls in which Misbah got to his fifty – a record. The previous fastest fifty in Test cricket was by Jacques Kallis, off 24 balls, against Zimbabwe, in Cape Town, in 2005.

24 Number of minutes in which Misbah got to fifty, also a record. The previous record holder was Mohammad Ashraful, who scored a fifty in 27 minutes, against India, in Mirpur in 2007.

522 Number of runs produced by Pakistan’s third wicket in this series, by far the most productive partnership wicket for either team. Pakistan’s fourth wicket is the next best, having contributed 405 runs. Australia’s opening wicket has been their most productive, contributing a relatively meager 212 runs.

1 Number of previous occasions when Pakistan have set their opposition a 600-plus target in a Test. Pakistan beat India after setting them a 607-run target in 2006. In Tests, there have been 16 previous instances of teams being set a 600-plus target, in which the chasing teams have drawn three and lost 13.

3 Number of 100-plus partnerships between Younis Khan and Azhar Ali in this series. For Pakistan, only Younis and Mohammad Yousuf have posted more century partnerships in a series – against India in 2006. The overall record is held by David Boon and Mark Waugh who shared five 100-plus partnerships during the 1993 Ashes.

7 Number of Tests in which Pakistan have declared twice. However, Pakistan only lost nine wickets in this entire Test, which is the second-fewest when they have declared in both innings.

468 Number of runs scored by Younis Khan in this series. This is the best by a Pakistan batsman in a two-match series, or in a longer series where the concerned batsman has played only two matches. The overall record is 571 runs, by Sanath Jayasuriya against India, in 1997.
