Right handed middle-order batsman, Basit Ali, on this day scored his maiden ODI century against West Indies in 1993 at Sharjah.
Pakistan batted first and lost 3 wickets for the score of 87, at this point Basit Ali walked in and scored 127*, his maiden ODI ton in only 79 balls and together with Saleem Malik took Pakistan to a massive total of 284 runs in 50 overs.
Unfortunately Pakistan lost the match and West Indies won by 6 wickets, mainly thanks to a brilliant 153 from Brian Charles Lara.
