Pakistan Skipper Misbah-ul-haq has amazed everyone by his stunning knock of 82 runs in just 37 balls in the 2017, Hong Kong T20 Blitz for Hong Kong Island United against Hung Hon JD Jaguars at the Mission Road Cricket Ground in Mong Kok.
Misbah has started his innings normally when he came to bat at no 4, he has started to destroy bowlers in 19th and 20th over of first innings. Misbah has scored 40 runs in his last seven balls that include 6 consecutive sixes and 1 four that leads to his score from 42 in 30 balls to 82 in 37 balls.
In return, the Hung Hom JD Jaguars tried their best to reach the score as their Opener Nizakat Khan smashed 34 in just 21 balls and no 4 batsmen Jonathan Foo took his innings to 77 runs in 47 balls with four boundaries and 6 sixes, while other players failed to perform and their score restricted to 183/8 in the 2nd innings.
Hong Kong Island scored 216/6 in their first innings and beat Hung Hom JD Jaguars by 33 runs in the 3rd match of Hong Kong Blitz T20 tournament.
After the Match, Misbah said, “I was just playing normal cricketing shots, till the last couple of overs. It was in my mind that with the kind of boundaries here, you can easily take 35-40 runs out of that. Try to get somewhere near 200 and then capitalise in the last couple of overs. That was the idea.”
