Younis Khan got his name into the record books after becoming only the 20th batsman (on 23rd occasion) to score a triple century in Tests.

His innings is the highest by any batsman against Sri Lanka, the previous highest being New Zealander Martin Crowe's 299 at Wellington in 1990-91.

His 313 is also the third-highest score by a Pakistan batsman, behind Hanif Mohammad's 337 and Inzamam-ul-Haq's 329.

More importantly, he became only the sixth Test captain, and the first from Pakistan to score a triple ton.
