United Arab Emirates (UAE) batsman Khurram Khan on 30 November struck a magnificent hundred against Afghanistan, becoming the oldest person to have scored a century in One Day International (ODI) matches. His team won the match by six wickets against Afghanistan.

The batsman, aged 43 years and 162 days, broke the record of former Sri Lanka allrounder Sanath Jayasuriya, who had hit a century against India in Dambulla in 2009, at the age of 39 years and 212 days.

Chasing a modest total of 281 runs posted by Afghanistan, Khurram scored 132 runs to lead his team to a six-wicket victory.

He completed his century in 105 balls, hitting fours and clearing the fence once. He later struck four more fours to see his side cruising past the target in 48.2 overs.

UAE has taken a lead of 2-0 in the four-match series.

Before Jayasuriya, England's Geoffrey Boycott held the record of hitting a century at the age of 39 years 51 days.
