Fakhar Zaman fifty VS India, Champions trophy 2017 final

Azhar Ali is making sure that he give Pakistan another strong start here with Fakhar Zaman. At the moment the Pakistan team is doing things the right way or call it their openers doing things well. Pakistan needs a solid start here if they want to make a huge total.

One thing is certain Pakistan needs a big total here against India. Against the Indian batting the Pakistani team will have to ensure they get a lot of runs to fight with. Small totals will do no good here. The wicket is looking easy for batting and hence India will be happy here.

But once again Fakhar Zaman has been impressive. He has hit this third fifty in a row in this Champions trophy 2017. Pakistan is certainly on a roll here. The opening partnership is going really strong and both Azhar and Fakhar and making sure they stay in for a longer period of time.

This is the third consecutive fifty for Fakhar Zaman in the Champions trophy 2017. He started with a fifty against Sri Lanka then one against England in the semifinals and now one against India in the finals. This is quality batting from the left hander here.

India did get a wicket here as Azhar Ali is run out here. Azhar fell to Bumrah here. The ball was hit on the leg side and Azhar wanted a single. The single was there for that matter but Fakhar was not following the call from Azhar. He was watching the ball all the time.

That was the reason India now has a chance to make it back into the game here. Pakistan batting is something which is doing the job here. Fakhar has been really impressive. He is one of those players who can give you the best of starts in limited overs cricket. This is something which the Pakistan team was missing a lot. They were struggling with their opening stand and now they have got some ideal stands in the recent games. This is a big moment in the game for Fakhar here. He has to make sure he goes forward.
