As England wrap-up their first Test match tour of Pakistan for 17 years, we’ve put together a quiz of the highest England run scorers ever in Pakistan.

At the top of the list with 468 runs is England’s latest batting prodigy, playing his first overseas Test match tour he’s made history by scoring a century in every match in the series. Of all the players on the list who have played in the historic 2022 series, he is 143 runs clear of his next highest scoring teammate.

All of the players have scored at least 150 runs in Pakistan, and range from having played in England’s first tour to the country in 1961, to the present day. With England’s historic lack of success in Pakistan where they had only won two Tests before 2022, it’s unsurprising four names from their current dominant side make the list.
