Pakistan's discarded opener Khalid Latif on Sunday became only the second cricketer from his country to score a double hundred in the domestic one-day championship when he smashed a magnificent 204 off 163 balls.

Latif is the ninth player in world to achieve the feat.

Playing for Karachi, Latif's brilliant innings, studded with 19 fours and seven sixes, came against Quetta at National Bank complex.

Mohammed Ali was the first Pakistani player to score a double hundred when he struck 207 for Customs against Defence at Sialkot in 2004-05.

The record for the highest individual score in one-day internationals remains with Pakistani opener Saeed Anwar, who scored 194 against India at Chennai in 1996-97.

Latif's knock was studded with 19 fours and seven sixes.
