Pakistan's dream run in T20 World Cup continues
Opting to bat first in Abu Dhabi, Pakistan posted a mammoth total of 189 runs riding on Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan's superlative show with the bat. Captain Babar provided the first impetus while Rizwan joined the party late. They added 113 runs for the first wicket before veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez gave the last bite with 16-ball 32 run knock.
Namibia succumbed to scoreboard pressure falling short by 45 runs in the run chase. Craig Williams and David Weise tried to steer their side into the right track but lacked support from the other end.
Speaking at the end of the game, the Pakistan captain seemed happy to continue the winning momentum. He said:
"It's really good, we're maintaining our winning momentum. We wanted to do things differently today, test our batting. Conditions were tough early on, they bowled well and we wanted to take the partnership deep. The way Hafeez batted and got into form, it was important for us as he is a key player. Hasan Ali was given the new ball as conditions were suitable."
