Senior players step up to take Pakistan home

Senior players step up to take Pakistan home

The Pakistan cricket team has made a remarkable comeback in Nottingham after the horrible start to their World Cup campaign as they have defeated the world number one side, England, in a nail-biting encounter on Monday.

Batting first, Pakistan was able to put up the highest first innings total of its World Cup history i.e., 348-8, thanks to some brilliant performances by openers, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, and Sarfraz Ahmed.

Hafeez brought in all his experience as he played a crucial knock during the middle half of the innings as he scored a 62 ball 84 and gave Pakistan the acceleration they needed before the death overs.

Although Shoaib Malik could not do much with the bat, however, he did make-up with the ball as he took the crucial wicket of Ben Stokes in his short spell. Hence, both the senior players, Hafeez and Malik, compensated for the 5th bowler in a brilliant manner as they gave just 53 runs in 10 overs while taking 2 wickets.
