In the 2nd Test match against Zimbabwe, Afghanistan scored a humongous 545/4 (decl.). Middle-order batsmen Hasmatullah Shahidi and Asghar Afghan stitched a record-breaking partnership of 307 runs, which helped Afghanistan in reaching the mammoth total.

Let us look at some of the numbers achieved in this 2nd Test:

200 - Hasmatullah Shahidi became the first Afghanistan player to score 200 in Tests. However, it's also interesting to note that the last three Asian players (H.Shahidi, M.Rahim and A.Mathews) who scored 200 in Tests, all got it against the same team- Zimbabwe.

307 - Hasmatullah Shahidi and Asghar Afghan became only the 4th pair to register 300+ run partnership for the 4th wicket in Tests on Asian soil.
