After Saeed Anwar and Matthew Hayden, the latest top-order left-handed batsman to dent India big time is none other Usman Khawaja who has produced a sensational display of batting in the recently concluded ODI series.
Coming into the series carrying tremendous pressure, the dexterous player responded brilliantly by notching up 2 centuries and a half-century. The heroic batting effort allowed him to become the best batsman of the series with 383 runs.
With this series, the 32-year old batsman eclipsed the former South African cricketer AB de Villiers to become the leading run-getter in a five-match ODI series against India in India. Considering the quality of the men in blue, this certainly would go down as a laudable achievement.
What made the feat even more special is that the Pakistan born cricketer’s special endeavor allowed his team to record a memorable series victory against a side which is considered a strong contender to win the World Cup event in England and Wales.
