Mohammad Yousuf is deemed to be one of Pakistan’s best batsman to have played the sport. Having made his international debut in a Test series against South Africa back in 1998, he was blessed with his maiden ODI Cap versus Zimbabwe in Harare. His career spanned 12 years and he carved a reputation for being one of their most reliable batsmen, mostly in Tests and ODIs.

In 90 Tests, the veteran racked 7530 runs at an average of 52.29. To add to his stupendous record, Yousuf also has 24 centuries to his name. In 2006, he became the highest scorer in Tests in a calendar year when he amassed 1788 runs in 11 matches at Don Bradman-esque average of 99.33. Even after 12 years after the record, the number remains to be unbeaten.

In ODIs, Yousuf bowed out with 288 matches in which he managed 9720 runs along with 15 centuries under his belt. He also donned the Pakistan colors in three T20Is. His last international match was an ODI against South Africa in Dubai back in 2010. He also retired from first-class cricket a year later. However, he kept playing T20 cricket till 2012. He made a brief return to cricket in the 2016 Masters Champions League in the UAE.

Yousuf makes a mistake

Meanwhile, he has also been involved in some controversies. The former cricketer had a verbal spat with another erstwhile cricketer in Ramiz Raja back in 2015 when the duo entered in a severe altercation on live TV, hurling expletives at each other. Yousuf has again become the center of attraction, this time on Twitter courtesy of a mishap.

He posted a picture on the social media platform along with his son, but captioned it as “Me and my father in Newcastle,”

The social media participants were quick to spot the error and they roasted the 43-year old for the blunder.
