Subject: Hanif Mohammad: Record-breaking former Pakistan batsman dies aged 81

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/12/16 at 6:13 am

Former Pakistan batsman Hanif Mohammad, who played the longest innings in Test history, has died aged 81.
Hanif played in Pakistan's first Test match in October 1952 and scored 3,915 runs in his 55 Test appearances.
The 499 he made for Karachi against Bahawalpur in 1959 was the highest first-class score for 45 years, until Warwickshire's Brian Lara made 501.
Hanif's 337 against West Indies in Barbados in 1958 lasted 16 hours 10 minutes, which remains a Test record.
