Sydney, Jan 5: Veteran Pakistan batsman Younis Khan on Thursday became the first player in Test cricket to score centuries in 11 countries that have hosted the longest format of the game.

He has scored centuries in 10 countries and one at United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is currently Pakistan's home venue for international matches. Opponent countries refuse to play in Pakistan owing to security reasons.

The 39-year-old slammed his 34th century on the third day of the third Test match against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here.

Younis was unbeaten at 136 runs, accompanied by Yasir Shah (5) when the day's action ended. Pakistan reached 271/8, still trailing Australia by 267 runs on the rain-affected third day. Agencies
