Pakistan Mourns for the Little Master

Pakistani cricket legend and internationally acclaimed Hanif Muhammad’s life can be summarized in one word and that is “perfection”. This iconic batsman represented Pakistan on an international arena in a commendable manner. Unfortunately, we lost this gem due to lung cancer. All the cricket fans in Pakistan and in the world mourned his death. Hanif left behind a peerless legacy and too many historical cricket memories to cherish forever.

Hanif’s marathon innings of 337 runs against West Indies in 1958 at Barbados is one of the most beautiful memories, world of cricket can ever have! This knock was the first-ever triple century by a Pakistani, the first-ever in the second innings and the only ever made for a teams forced for follow on. All these factors, makes Hanif’s innings the best and the only in the world of cricket so far.

The entire world is still in a shock that how Hanif actually managed to play in the scorching Caribbean heat for 970 minutes. He actually laid the foundation and record for the longest-ever test innings. Hanif is the man behind the one-man show of that test match.

Hanif’s record of highest-first-class innings stayed for 35 years until it was broken by West Indies’ Brian Lara. He played 55 tests and has the privilege of playing the first test match after partition. Young Pakistani players should consider Hanif as their teacher, mentor and ideal even when he is not around to see their game.
