Coming back to team and making a brilliant 52 runs off 39 balls in the first game of the World Cup T20 2016, only Ahmad Shahzad can do that. Shehzad proved his worth with brilliant innings that includes 8 fours.
With a strike rate of 133.3, Ahmed made brilliant hitting all around the ground and did not let Bangladesh bowlers to settle down.
Bangladesh bowlers were not able to contain him until he played a shot that was a mis hit and landed in the hands of Mohammadullah standing on the mid wicket area. Sabir Rehman took the dangerous looking Shehzad.
With Afridi choosing to bat first after winning the toss, the decision has become very useful for Pakistan. Ahmad Shahzad and Sharjeel Khan provided really wonderful start to Pakistan with their brilliant batting.
Sharjeel got out in the 3rd over in an attempt to hit over the bowler’s head but Mohammad Sunny managed to eat the left handed hard hitter. Mashfiqur Rehman easily pull off the bails and sent Sharjeel to the dug out.
