Shoaib Malik becomes a star in a record-breaking T20 match
The veteran Shoaib Malik, Pakistan’s all-rounder, starred in a half-century of bravado, during his 350th Twenty20 at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. According to the details, Shoaib Malik became the first cricketer from Pakistan to participate in 350 T20 matches and made this particular record game memorable by playing a match-winning ticket for his team.
The 37-year-old, who leads Guyana Amazon Warriors during the current Caribbean Premier League (CPL), scored 67 of 37-ball to lead his team to victory over Jamaica Tallawahs. His undefeated scorching blow included six-four and three sixes.
“When I started playing cricket, I never thought I’d play 350 games in total, it doesn’t matter 350 in one format,” Flaminko said quoting Malik.
“I am honored to have been part of this beautiful cricket game. When I started my career, T20 cricket didn’t exist, and I’m proud to have been able to keep my game relevant to modern cricket,” he added.
The Sialkot-born also emphasized the importance of physical exercise to keep up with the pressures of the game.
“T20 cricket is exciting, but it’s also tough; you often play 2/3 games per week, which can be difficult for you mentally and physically, and it’s important to stay in shape so you can withstand the pressures of the format,” he concluded.
