Pakistan Batsman Imam-ul-Haq Breaks Kapil Dev's 36-Year-Old Record

Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq broke India's World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev's record as he became the youngest-ever batsman to score a 150-plus knock in One-Day International (ODI) cricket in England. Kapil Dev had scored an unbeaten 175 at the age of 24 in a 1983 World Cup match against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge Wells. After 36 years, 23-year-old Imam-ul-Haq scored 151 off 131 balls in the third ODI between Pakistan and England. The top-order batman's record-breaking knock powered Pakistan to 359 for nine in 50 overs. However, England rode on a century by Jonny Bairstow to beat Pakistan by six and take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.
