He scored a century in this match, to become the youngest player at the time to do so at an age of 19 years and 119 days.[1] In the same series he scored a double century, and on his way broke George Headley's 47 year record, to become the youngest player to achieve the feat.[2] Miandad made his One Day International debut against the West Indies at Edgbaston, Birmingham in the Cricket World Cup 1975.

Javed Miandad played 124 Test matches, batting in 189 innings. His aggregate of 8,832 Test runs is a Pakistani record.

Miandad's Test career batting average of 52.57 is among the highest for Pakistani batsmen. He scored six double centuries which is the most by a Pakistani and 6th overall.[4] He made his highest score of 280 not out against India.
