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.
