In an exciting World Cup match against Bangladesh, Fakhar Zaman, the opener for Pakistan, really stood out and was rightly given the Player of the Match award.
Fakhar Zaman lit up the Kolkata stadium with his incredible performance, hitting seven sixes and three fours, scoring 81 runs in just 74 balls. This outstanding play also made him the second Pakistani player to hit the most sixes in a single World Cup match.
Fakhar Zaman’s amazing performance, along with Abdullah Shafique’s solid 68 runs, helped Pakistan successfully chase Bangladesh’s score of 204 runs.
This win is particularly important because Pakistan had faced four consecutive defeats in previous matches. This victory pushed Pakistan to the fifth spot on the points table.
The impressive partnership between Fakhar Zaman and Abdullah Shafique, which led to 128 runs, set the stage for Pakistan’s success. Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed also contributed to secure the win for their team. Pakistan’s fans have a lot to be happy about as they look forward in the tournament.
