Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Starting the red-ball leg of the ongoing tour of Australia, Pakistanis were extremely concerned about their gun batsman Babar Azam who hasn’t got impressive numbers in this format of the game. However, the run machine has continued his work even in the tour game against Australia A.
After scoring two half-centuries in the three games against Australia, the Lahore born went a step ahead to record a three-figure mark in the tour game to gear up for the Test series.
Babar came to bat when Pakistan was struggling by losing 3 wickets for 60 runs. Instead of getting pressurized by the situation, the Lahore born countered the situation with aggression.
In his glorious innings of unbeaten 157 runs, Babar struck 24 fours to show his class. Forming an undefeated colossal 276-run stand for the 4th wicket with middle-order batsman Asad Shafiq, the 25-year old brought his team right back in the contest.
Asad himself recorded a stunning innings which saw him getting a century and hence the batting duo made sure that Pakistan ends the day on a high note.
