Shan Masood Creates History in English County Championship

Pakistan’s opening batter Shan Masood got his name into record books when he became the first-ever Pakistani to score two back-to-back double centuries in the county championship.

The 32-year-old batter is representing county Derbyshire. He played a knock of 219 off 268 deliveries against Leicestershire on Friday to score his second consecutive double-century. In the previous match, he had scored 239 against Sussex.

Masood is the first Pakistani batter to score two consecutive double centuries in two innings in the county championship.
