Is there anything more powerful than the bond between parent and child? We doubt it and so does Shoaib Malik.

Malik’s cricketing career has been quite the roller coaster ride but when the Pakistan batsman scored his comeback century against England on Day 1, he knew exactly who to dedicate it to.

The all-rounder credited his mother in a tweet after a praiseworthy performance on the first day of the three-match Test series at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Malik, who made a comeback to Test arena after five long years, scored 245 – his maiden double century in Tests – on his return courtesy 24 boundaries and four sixes.
