Shan Masood is a Pakistani cricketer born in Kuwait. Nicknamed “Shani”, Masood has been a regular in the U15s and U19s for Pakistan. A stylish left handed opener, Masood's rise to fame was a brilliant knock of 80-odd against Australia in an U19 game in 2007. Impressive performances in the domestic circuit saw him earn a place in the Test squad that toured Zimbabwe in September, 2013 but was unfortunate not to get a game. However, the wait was over soon enough as he got a chance to make his Test debut against South Africa the following month on his 24th birthday. [1] Shan Masood

Early career

Shan Masood and Younis runing

Shan Masood and Younis runing

Everyone wants to listen to an under-dog story making it to the top. Shan Masood's is no different but with a little twist. Born into an affluent family, Masood's father is one of the board of Governors at PCB. But, that has only made life tougher for Shan as he has had to grind through the rigours of first-class cricket to make it big at the international level. A debut in 2013 against the visiting South Africans in whites ensured all his struggles playing various levels of age group cricket had come finally bore fruits. A gutsy 75 in his debut innings against the likes of Steyn, Morkel and Philander shouted out his mettle. But having waged like a warrior against seasoned warriors, he fell to Duminy and denied himself a chance to get a hundred on debut. But Shan again hit the headlines with a majestic ton at Pallekele in the third Test against Sri Lanka in July 2015 after being overlooked for the first two tests of the series. Pakistan thanks to hundreds from Masood and Younis had tracked down 377 with ease. Bad form in combination with mental and technical frailties have kept Shan in and out of the side. [2] Shan Masood Early Career 

World Record

The left-handed opener Shan has also become only the second batsman in history to score more than 1,000 runs in a 50-over season at an average of more than 100. He managed a total score tally of 1,288 runs at an average of 128.80, with Bevan the only other batsman to achieve similar numbers – 1,201 runs at an average of 109.18 in 2000. His knock of 182 while playing for Islamabad against Rawalpindi, Shan took his average to 58.2 in List-A, surpassing the stupendous tally of 15,103 runs by Micheal Bevan in 427 matches with an average of 57.86. Granted that Shan has only played 71 matches, however it is still a remarkable feat for someone who had so much pressure to perform and critics to respond to. Shan has not only responded to all the critics but along the way, set up a new world record in cricket history. [3] World  Record
