Asia Cup 2018: Twitter Erupts as Mohammad Shahzad Scores a Brilliant Century
Afghanistan wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Shahzad set the stage on fire with a swashbuckling century against India in the dead rubber of the Super Four clash of this Asia Cup.
Meanwhile, the men in blues went with a couple of changes in this dead rubber. They wanted to give their full squad a chance to play in this six-nation tournament.
However, the most eye-grabbing sight was when MS Dhoni came out in the middle for the toss. It was a nostalgic vision for the cricket lovers as Dhoni has been one of the best captains India have ever produced. Moreover, he is the only captain to win three ICC Trophies.

The tides, however, soon shifted from MS Dhoni to an ardent follower of his. Mohammad Shahzad took the young India bowling unit by storm smashing them all over the park. He smashed debutant Deepak Chahar for 24 runs in two overs.
Although wickets kept on falling on end, Shahzad went on with his onslaught. So much so, renowned bowlers like Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav couldn’t even stop him from playing his shots. Afghanistan lost four wickets from one end with the spinner coming down heavily on the inexperience batters.
But Mohammad Shahzad looked unperturbed by that as he cleaned the boundary ropes with ease. However, he looked careful after reaching the nervous nineties. Furthermore, he brought his hundred with a boundary in just 88 deliveries including six over boundaries and 10 fours.
Meanwhile, Shahzad has an uphill task at hand as he will have to continues scoring to help his team post a respectable total on the scoreboard.
Here is how the Twitter reacted to the swashbuckling century of Mohammad Shahzad:
