Muhammad Rizwan and Babar Azam Records Highest Opening Partnership in T20 History
In the history of international T20 cricket, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam record the highest opening partnership of 196 runs while chasing the target of 203 runs in the 3rd t20 between Pakistan vs South Africa 2021.
Babar Azam was dismissed for 122 in an innings but Mohammad Rizwan was unbeaten on 63 off 46 balls. He had 5 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. Rizwan made this impeccable history with Babar Azam by keeping the fast of Ramadan. At the end of the match, captain Babar Azam informed Rizwan about fasting.
The opportunity was to become the first team in the International Twenty20 to win by 10 wickets beyond the target of two hundred runs. With Babar Azam’s departure to stay 6 runs away from victory, only the opportunity was wasted.
This may be Pakistan’s third T20 match against South Africa in Centurion. Pakistan did not win easily with Babar Azam’s record-breaking royal century. The target of 204 runs. Whether Pakistan won the match by 9 wickets with 2 overs in hand!
Pakistan took a 2-1 lead in the four-match series. Babar has scored 122 off 59 balls, the highest by any Pakistani batsman in the International Twenty20. Pakistan captain Ahmed Shehzad broke the record. The Pakistani opener was unbeaten on 111 against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2014.
