Class, Consistency, Elegance, he has it all. One of the most reliable players to have played for Pakistan, Mohammad Yousuf (formerly Yousuf Youhana) has been one real gem for Pakistan. When he was all set to work at a tailor’s, he was plucked by a local club to play a match at Lahore. From a Rickshaw-puller to being one of the greatest players of the game, he has seen it all. On account of his birthday, lets have a look at his top five innings of all time.
5. 117 vs South Africa, Lahore-2007
Yousuf came to bat when Pakistan was struggling at 27-2 and that one classic cover drive changed the complexion of the entire match.
Riding on the back of his innings, Pakistan registered a competitive total of 265, eventually beating the Proteas by 25 runs. Yousuf was rightly adjusted the Man of the Match.
