Cricket Comes Home:
Pakistanis did not even get over PSL’s third edition yet and here is our cricket board presenting us a new victory and this time it’s not only about a few international players coming in but a whole cricket team. Yes, West Indies comes home. There’s nothing right now that a cricket fan could be more excited about. Pakistan vs West Indies happening right here in the national stadium is exactly what Karachi needed to push away all the negative vibes it has been surrounded with.
Today is the third and last day of Pakistan vs West Indies T20 series and Pakistan has already settled the series in its favour.
Pakistan set a record of 206 runs with Babar Azam scoring 97 and Hussain Talat 63.
West Indies lost the second T20I at National Stadium Karachi by 82 runs and mustered up just 123 runs.
With this defeat, Pakistan took a lead of 2-0 in the three-day match series, rendering Tuesday’s final match a dead rubber.
Green shirts, who won the toss and chose to bat first, did not get much contribution from their opener Fakhar Zaman, who chipped in with just six runs and departed back to pavilion in the second over.
However, Babar Azam and Hussain Talat repaired the damage, taking their team to 42-1 at the end of 5 overs. Halfway through their innings, Pakistan was 90-1.
Azam making his fans proud once again:
Babar Azam, who had a billion 50s to his name in third PSL, added another one to his growing T20I record in the 11th over.
With just 5 overs left, Pakistan scored 144-2 and needed a few more from Asif if they were to cross the 200-run mark again.Asif made all of his fans excited by hitting one out of the park, in the same manner, he did in the PSL 2018 final.
