Karachi Whites’ captain achieved his second double-century in first-class cricket, marking his 16th FC century and his second century in the current Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season.

In a historic turn of events during the same innings, five different batters, including Khurram Manzoor, Asad Shafique, Ammad Alam, Rameez Aziz, and Sarfaraz, all notched up centuries.

This achievement set a new domestic record in Pakistani cricket, being the first instance in the country's domestic cricket history where five centuries were scored in a single innings. While this has occurred five times in FC cricket globally, it is the first for Pakistan's domestic cricket.

Karachi Whites, led by Sarfaraz Ahmed, posted a formidable total of 784/5, marking the fifth-highest First-Class total in Pakistan and the highest since 1995. Despite the outstanding performance, the match concluded in a draw.

In the first innings, Lahore Whites had declared at 509/9, with Ali Zaryab contributing significantly with a monumental 222-run innings.
