4. Younis Khan:
Younis Khan ended his career as Pakistan’s most prolific run-getter in Test cricket and has 10099 runs to his names which he compiled in 118 matches at an average of 52.05. He is the only Pakistan player with over 9000 Test runs which wasn’t an easy feat for him to achieve.
Younis had his struggles to be in the team throughout his 17-year career during which he played 118 matches at an average of only seven Tests per year. With 10099 runs to his name, Younis leads Sachin’s tally after 118 Test matches by 504 runs.
The Indian batsman, however, had played fewer innings than Younis after 118 Tests. However, comparing both the players after 213 innings, Sachin leads Younis by a fair margin of 428 runs as the legendary batsman had 10527 runs to his name and had scored one ton more than the Pakistani.
