In his first-ever World Cup match, Pakistan’s opening batsman Abdullah Shafique made a remarkable impact. He showed his talent by scoring a century against Sri Lanka. In their second match of the 2023 World Cup at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, the Pakistan team achieved something remarkable. They successfully chased down a very high score of 345 runs, which was the highest ever chased in a World Cup match.
Abdullah Shafique, a young opening batsman, played a crucial role in this pursuit. He had one of the best performances by a Pakistani batsman in a World Cup match.
Abdullah’s century set a new record for the most runs scored by a Pakistani batsman in their debut World Cup innings. He scored 113 runs in 103 balls, which included ten fours and three sixes before leaving the field.
