Teenager Mohammad Huraira on Monday became the second-youngest Pakistani after Javed Miandad to score a first-class triple century.

Huraira, 19, who is also former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik’s nephew, reached the milestone on the third day of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match where Northern is playing against Balochistan.

Huraira achieved this feat in his maiden first-class season. He had scored two centuries before this landmark performance.

The triple century came off only 327 deliveries making it one of the quickest first-class triple centuries.

The Pakistani youngster is the ninth teenager in the world to smash a triple ton in first-class cricket and the second Pakistani after Javed Miandad.

Huraira scored triple century at the age of 19 years 239 days in Karachi. Javed Miandad scored triple century at the age of 17 and 310 days.

He is also the eighth youngest batter, overall, to achieve this feat.
