In a thrilling World Cup encounter at Hyderabad, Pakistan secured their second consecutive victory, showcasing exceptional batting skills as they successfully chased down a formidable target of 345 against Sri Lanka. Mohammad Rizwan and Abdullah Shafique, Pakistan’s batters, delivered stunning centuries, leading their team to a remarkable six-wicket win. Sri Lanka had appeared dominant after Kusal Mendis and Sadeera Samarawickrama notched up centuries, setting a challenging target of 345.

However, Pakistan’s response was remarkable. Mohammad Rizwan’s unbeaten 131 and Abdullah Shafique’s 113 helped them achieve the highest successful run-chase in World Cup history, surpassing Ireland’s previous record of 329 against England in 2011.

A defining moment in the match occurred in the 37th over when Rizwan, on the third ball, hit a six and then fell to the ground in pain. Commentator Simon Doull, present during the moment, couldn’t help but laugh as Rizwan’s fall appeared quite animated. He even joked that Rizwan should consider a career in movies. After the game, Doull asked Rizwan about his cramps, and the wicketkeeper-batter humorously responded, “sometimes it’s cramps, sometimes it’s acting.”

Despite a shaky start with Pakistan at 37 for 2 in just 7.2 overs, thanks to Dilshan Madushanka’s excellent bowling, the young Abdullah Shafique, in only his fifth ODI appearance, displayed remarkable maturity. Alongside Mohammad Rizwan, the duo helped Pakistan recover, bringing up the team’s century in the 19th over. Shafique, who replaced Fakhar Zaman in the lineup, notched his fifty off 58 balls, and their partnership reached 138 for 2 at the halfway mark.

In the 32nd over, Shafique reached his maiden ODI century, while Rizwan continued to pile on the runs, hitting two sixes in consecutive balls in the 34th over. A diving catch eventually ended Shafique’s brilliant innings, but Sri Lanka’s hopes of a comeback were dashed. Despite some late catches and wickets, Rizwan and Saud Shakeel continued to bring Pakistan closer to victory. In the end, Iftikhar Ahmed smashed three fours, sealing the win for Pakistan.
