Twitter Goes Wild As Mohammad Shahzad Helps Rajputs Chase Down 95 In Four Overs

Mohammad Shahzad put up a batting masterclass to fire Rajputs to a thumping win over Sindhis in T10 League on Tuesday.

If T10 cricket is all about going slam bang with the bat, then the opener between the Sindhis and Rajputs totally lived up to the expectations.  The game did not turn out to be a thrilling one but Mohammad Shahzad’s stunning assault with the bat made up for it. In fact, the game turned out to be a lopsided contest as Rajputs thrashed Sindhis by 10 wickets. The Rajputs won the game with an unbelievable six overs to spare.

Rajputs skipper Brendon McCullum decided to field first after winning the toss. Sindhis lost wickets at regular intervals but managed to score 94 for 6, thanks to their skipper Shane Watson. The former Australia allrounder slammed 42 of just 20 to guide his team to a challenging total. Barring him, none of the other players could cross the double-digit mark. For the bowling side, former India pacer Munaf Patel was the most successful bowler with 3 wickets for 20 runs.

The Afghanistan star, who had scored a century against India in the Asia Cup not very long ago, fired on all cylinders right from the word go. The right-hander reached his half-century in a mere 12 deliveries as the Sindhis looked hapless.
