Pathan’s double ton achieves successful record run chase

HYDERABAD: India’s Yusuf Pathan lashed a double century to help West Zone record the highest successful fourth-innings chase in first-class cricket Saturday.

All-rounder Pathan smashed 210 not out to help his team overhaul a target of 536 set by South Zone and win the five-day final of the Duleep Trophy regional competition by three wickets.

West finished with 541-7, Pathan scoring the winning runs with his 10th six, beating the previous record of 513-9 scored by Central Province against Southern Province in Sri Lankan domestic cricket in the 2003-04 season. – Agencies
