The Pakistan opening batter took to Twitter and congratulated Khan and wrote “Congratulations brother So Happy for you ????”.

In the last few years, the former Royal Challengers Bangalore player in the IPL has toiled hard for Mumbai in red-ball cricket. He is the first uncapped Indian cricketer to score more than 900 runs in two back-to-back seasons. Only Wasim Jaffer did during around the late 90s and early 2000s.
