Abdullah Shafique partnered with Shaheen Shah Afridi to help Lahore Qalandars dominate at the end of the first innings of the tournament final against Multan Sultans in Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The right-handed batter tackled one end and partnered sensibly with Shaheen to help Lahore post a mammoth total of 200-6.
Abdullah scored 65 in 40 balls laced with eight boundaries and two maximums.
Here's how fans appreciated Abdullah for his sensible knock.
Lahore's captain Shaheen played an exceptional knock to help his team keep title-defense hopes alive. Shaheen scored 44 off 15 balls and also partnered with Abdullah Shafique for match-turning partnership. They scored quick 66 runs in 27 balls to help Lahore set Multan a daunting target of 201 runs.
After a brisk start, where Lahore scored 34 runs in the first three overs, opener Tahir Baig was dismissed by Ihsanullah with a sharp short ball. The right-hander scored 30 runs in 18 balls.
The wicket, coupled with some good bowling, helped Multan stem the flow of runs as Lahore reached 82-1 at the halfway mark.
Fakhar Zaman and Abdullah Shafique added 57 runs in 38 balls for the second wicket but, just when they decided to increase the rate of scoring, Multan dismantled the batting side's plans with four quick wickets.
