Younis hammers double-ton for Yorks

Sunday, July 29, 2007

LONDON: Pakistan’s prominent batsman Younis Khan hammered out his second unbeaten double century of the season as English cricket county Yorkshire made sure of maximum batting bonus points in a County Championship match against Kent which ended in a predictable draw at Scarborough after first two days had been hit by bad weather.

Younis Khan was in formidable form while amassing 217 not out and his broad bat helped Yorkshire reach 550 for nine declared which secured them a first innings lead of 64, the game ending with Kent on 17 without loss in their second innings.

Yorkshire took 12 points out of the match to remain top of Division One table and Kent managed 11 points.

Younis completed his century just before lunch off 131 balls including 10 fours and a six and he ended with 18 fours and six sixes from 252 deliveries.

His first double century — 202 not out — came early in May against Hampshire at Rose Bowl when he also rapped out a century to become the first Yorkshire batsman ever to achieve the feat and this latest effort was the only other occasion that he had made it to the 50 mark in a Championship match.
