Zak Crawley's 267 in the third Test against Pakistan at Southampton

Zak Crawley’s 267 in the third Test against Pakistan at Southampton on Saturday saw the England batsman rewrite the record books.

He converted his maiden Test hundred into a superb innings of 267 as he shared a record-breaking stand with Jos Buttler on the second day of the series finale against Pakistan at Southampton on Saturday.

England went to tea on day two on 490-5, Crawley having scored more than half of the runs with a knock that has thrust him into cricket’s global consciousness.

His partnership of 359 with Buttler was also a new England fifth-wicket record in Tests, surpassing the 254 shared by Keith Fletcher and Tony Greig against India at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai in February 1973.

The 22-year-old Crawley was the seventh England batsman to turn his maiden Test hundred into a double century and the first since Rob Key did so against the West Indies at Lord’s in 2004.
