#3 Younis Khan 144 vs HK, 2004
Hong Kong are all set to play their third Asia Cup, having been drawn up with India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2018. But, their Asia Cup debut, came back in 2004. Having been trounced by Bangladesh in their first game, Hong Kong began well against Pakistan, sending both the openers back within the first 10 overs. But their nightmare was yet to begin.
Younis Khan paired up with Shoaib Malik and both the batsmen helped themselves to centuries, putting on a partnership of 223. Malik fell in the 43rd over, but Younis motored on, bringing out the big shots before falling in the penultimate over.
Needless to say, Pakistan's tally of 343 was way beyond Hong Kong's reach, and the East Asians fell to a 173 run defeat.Published 16 Sep 2018, 11:00 IST
