Pakistan’s opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq has created a world record by breaking the 37-year-old record of England’s Graham Gooch of scoring most runs in a series.

Imam gained this honour during Pakistan’s third and one day international against Australia here on Saturday night which the team won by 9 wickets and also sealed the three match series 2-1.

Imam scored 298 runs in the series to surpass 289 runs scored by the Englishman in 1985 against Australia against similar number of matches.
