It is a good thing that Muhammad Rizwan recovered his form in the second after failing in only one match on his comeback, he won the man of the match award by scoring an unbeaten 75 runs, Fakhrzaman also played an innings of 78 with the bat. The good omen for the team is that Azam Khan did not let the situation go out of control while playing the role of a power hitter, he scored 30 runs not out with the help of 4 sixes and a four in just 10 balls.

Iftikhar Ahmed and Imad Wasim in the team can also take sixes from the opponent’s bowling if needed, but the fielding will need improvement.
