Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq equaled the record for the fastest Test century on Sunday, reaching the milestone in 56 balls against Australia in Abu Dhabi.
The 40-year-old right-hander hit Mitchell Starc for consecutive boundaries to match West Indies great Viv Richards's 1986 record against England.
Misbah walked out to bat on the fourth day of the second Test under no real pressure and imposed himself upon the opposition, aided by a little luck.
Azhar Ali also brought up his second century of the match and was not out on 100 when Pakistan set Australia a 603-run victory target.
Misbah took just 21 balls to complete his half century, bettering Jacques Kallis's record 24-ball fifty against Zimbabwe in Cape Town in 2005.
