If Pakistan is to pull something special, the role of opening batsman Fakhar Zaman cannot be overemphasized. Ever since his debut for the green shirts, the hard-hitting cricketer is growing extremely well as he now sits as one of the key players of Pakistan going into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament.
Hailing from Mardan, the belligerent cricketer possesses an impressive record in the white-ball cricket and his recent displays aren’t making any reputation to his harm.
After hammering Kent and Northamptonshire, the Lahore Qalandars player extended his good run to decimate Leicestershire in the T20 game before commencing the series against England.
The 29-year old cricketer opened the batting alongside Babar Azam to provide the boys in green a superlative opening stand which consisted of 104 runs.
In his knock of 52 runs, Fakhar displayed his effective range of strokes by bludgeoning 7 fours and a solitary six. This is Fakhar’s third consecutive 50-plus score in England. Seeing their opener firing has jubilated the management as they are backing him to repeat his heroics against England and then in the mega-event.
