Hold the phone, hold your nerve. Pakistan have actually hit a six in the Powerplay, their first of 2023.
In a surprising turn of events, Pakistan has finally managed to hit a six during the Powerplay in 2023, marking their first of the year. While all the other 22 or 23 sides that participate in ODI cricket had achieved this feat, Pakistan had not, until Abdullah Shafique stepped up.
Demonstrating remarkable skill, Shafique swiftly shifted his weight onto the back foot and executed a powerful hook shot against Naveen ul Haq, sending the ball soaring behind square leg. This momentous play has undoubtedly provided a boost to Pakistan’s performance in the game.
