Youngest Player Scoring Double Century in Test Javed Miandad : When a batsman scores a century in Test cricket, it is considered a special achievement. He is welcomed with thunderous applause. However, Test cricket is a game in which time does not matter much. The batsman can bat as long as he wants. The way the game is played for 50 overs in ODI and 20 overs in T20, there is no such compulsion in Test. This is the reason why not only double but also triple centuries have been scored in Tests. Former West Indies captain Brian Lara had even scored an inning of 400 runs, but this happened only once. But do you know who was the youngest player to score a double century in Test cricket? It has been almost 48 years since this record was made, but till now no one has been able to break it.

Javed Miandad holds the record for being the youngest person to score a double century in Test.

We are talking about Javed Miandad, one of the legendary players of Pakistan. Even though Javed Miandad is not in the headlines of sports today, he is often discussed because of the records made by him. Javed Miandad is the only batsman who holds the record of scoring a Test double century at the youngest age. In 1976, he played an excellent inning of 206 runs against New Zealand at the National Stadium in Karachi.

Scored double century at the age of 19 years and 140 days

Born on 12 June 1957, Javed Miandad was 19 years and 140 days old at that time. In this match for Pakistan, Javed Miandad came to bat at number four and batted for 410 minutes. 29 fours and two sixes came off his bat. The special thing is that this was Javed Miandad’s third Test match, in which he created history. However, this match played against New Zealand ended in a draw.

Vinod Kambli holds these records for India

Since 1976, many double and triple centuries have been scored, but no other batsman has been able to break the record of such a young age. If we talk about recent times, India’s Vinod Kambli had also scored a double century on his debut. He had become very close to Javed Miandad. When Vinod Kambli completed his double century against England in 1993, he was 21 years and 32 days old. In the year 1909, George Hadley of West Indies scored a century against England at the age of 20 years and 308 days. That means only George Headley is close to Javed Miandad, no other batsman is even close to him. It remains to be seen that 48 years have passed, but for how many more years will this record remain unbroken.
