Asad Shafiq nearly dragged Pakistan to victory in a chase of 490 against Australia

If not for a rip-snorting bouncer from Mitchell Starc — and a steady-as-she-goes catch at gully by David Warner — Australian cricket fans may have remembered Asad Shafiq in the same way they remember
VVS Laxman. The 30-year-old smashed his 10th Test century — and second in the past 12 months — as he dragged Pakistan to within 40 runs of a staggering upset at the Gabba as they chased Australia’s target of 490. A mighty effort and clear highlight from a strong season.

15 Tests, 834 runs at 30.88.
Two centuries. Top score of 137.
