Shoaib Malik impresses on his comeback ODI

Shoaib Malik impresses on his comeback ODI

While Pakistan failed to record a comeback in the ongoing ODI series against England, veteran all-rounders Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik both recorded an impressive comeback. Winning the toss, England allowed Pakistan to bat first on a belter. The green shirts were once again found struggling with their power-hitting department as a paltry total of 340 was chased by hosts who were aided by a shoddy fielding display.

Nevertheless, one of the major positives for Pakistan was the form of the senior cricketer Shoaib Malik who looked in good touch evident from his 26-ball 41. After the departure of centurion Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez, the 37-year old player came to Pakistan’s rescue by scoring briskly and allowed the boys in green to get to a respectable total.

Managing a gigantic strike-rate of 157.69, the Sialkot born produced 4 delightful boundaries to embellish his knock. To his dismay, Malik’s innings ended in a bizarre fashion as he was hit wicket against Mark Wood when he went deep in his crease to cut a ball outside his off-stump.
