Pakistani pair sets world record partnership

Pakistani pair Rafatullah Mohmand and Aamer Sajjad set a world record for second wicket partnership on Sunday in a first class match at Sheikhupura Stadium.

Mohmand (302 not out) and Sajjad (289) put on 580 runs for the second wicket stand while playing for Wapda on the last day of the four-day Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match against Sui Southern Gas Corporation.

They broke the previous second wicket world record of 576 runs held by Sri Lankan pair Sanath Jayasuriya (340) and Roshan Mahanama (225) during a Test match against India in Colombo in 1997.

Sajjad hit 36 boundaries while Mohmand smashed 34 fours. Wapda finished the match at 671-2 in reply to SSGC's first innings effort of 466 all out.
