Today in the morning PCB announced that Ahmad Shahzad and Umar Akmal both have been dropped from the automatic choice category due to their continued discipline issues. In the evening, we see Ahmad Shahzad hitting 143 with the bat. Ahmad Shahzad played well today and there is not much doubt about it. He was in control against the Sindh batting line and as it was mentioned before that if KPK wants to win this then Ahmad has to bat well in today’s game.He was special against the short stuff which Sohail Khan bowled against him with the new ball. Ahmad pulled first ball on the leg side followed by another down to the backward square leg fence.
Sohail against hit a short length and again he was penalized by Ahmad. The first six from Ahmad came early in the innings as the played a slog sweep on the leg side after getting to the pitch of the ball.
Ahmad knew how to place his innings. He played another solid knock in the previous game and as a result, he was able to take his team to the winning podium. Today he is again repeating the same performance so far.
Ahmad was good against the left-arm fast, bowlers, Amir and Raees. Against Amir was particularly good because we have seen that Amir is the largest threat posted for the Sindh team and he had to neutralize him to take the advantage against Sindh. Ahmad hit 15 fours and 2 six sin his innings. He fell to Bilal Asif getting caught by Roman Raees. Ahmad did play a good hand for the KPK team.
