Pakistan fell into a batting disaster in their first match in the World Cup. They bowled out three top-order batsmen for just 38 runs. After that, Rizwan and Saud Shakeel managed the initial shock and led the team with a big score. But after the dismissal of these two batsmen, Pakistan is again in a batting disaster.
The disaster started with Soud Shakil. He returned to the pavilion after scoring 68 runs off 52 balls. The 120-run partnership of Rizwan-Shakeel broke in his out.
Mohassad Rizwan could not stay at the crease for twenty times after Shakil’s dismissal. He returned with 75 off 68 balls.
After Rizwan’s dismissal, Iftikhar Ahmed also went back to 188 runs. He scored 9 off 11 balls.
After the dismissal of Iftikhar, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz are trying to take control of the team. So far these two batsmen have made a partnership of 40 runs in 49 balls. Now let’s see how far they can take their pair.
