Asif records yet another fruitful outing

Asif records yet another fruitful outing

With only two weeks remaining in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistan is testing few players to finalize their squad for the mega-event. For the power-hitting role, explosive batsman Asif Ali was given a go and he seems to have no plans of disappointing the think tank.

After producing a stunning batting effort in a pressure run-chase in Southampton, the 27-year old continued his good run to record another half-century against England. In the third ODI, Asif came into bat when his team was 162-4 and added 125 crucial runs with Imam-ul-Haq for the fifth wicket.

Stunning England with his power-hitting, the belligerent striker smashed a couple of fours and three sixes to score 52 runs. The Faisalabad born allowed Pakistan to achieve the needed momentum and get in a position to score in excess of 350.

To his dismay, Asif’s batting performance didn’t bear fruits as Pakistan was decimated by a scintillating batting effort from the English batters. This allowed the home team to register an emphatic victory by 9 wickets. With two games to go, Pakistan would need to win both of the games to save the series and bag the winning momentum ahead of the all-important mega-event.
