Fakhar Zaman sixes against India, Champions trophy 2017 final

They say fortunes favors the brave and last night we saw this happening to Fakhar Zaman and team Pakistan. In the finals of the Champions trophy 2017 Pakistan defeated India with a huge margin of 180 runs and Fakhar Zaman was named the man of the match.

Fakhar got away with a lucky chance when he was out caught behind but Bumrah over stepped and that one no ball cost India 114 runs. Fakhar was outstanding after that chance. He tarnished the Indian bowling attack and especially he took the attack to the Indian spinners.

There were 21 overs bowled by the Indian spinners and out of them Pakistan scored almost 170 runs. Not only had this, against Ashwin and Jadeja Fakhar scored 80 off runs singled handedly. Spin department of India was thought to be their strength but Fakhar made it their weakness.

Fakhar hit some lovely shots against the Indian spinners. There were three sixes hit from his bat and all of them were against spinners. The first one was hit to Jadeja. This was a tossed up ball and Fakhar used his feet perfectly here. He did not let the all to turn here.

He picked it over long on straight away as the ball was pitched. The ball was middle properly and the ball sailed into the crowd here. There is no doubt that this was a massive hit from Fakhar. In the previous over a wicket fell for Pakistan but Fakhar did not let the Indian bowler capitalize on it.

The next hit was against Ashwin. Now here Ashwin did deceive Fakhar in the air. Fakhar could not reach to the pitch of the ball here but still he did not hold himself back from hitting his shot here. He went with the flow of the shot here and hit the ball hard. This one went for another six. The third six was again to Ashwin here. This was quality batting from Fakhar. He got the chance and he was able to hit the first hundred for himself and for his team. He is a quality batsman for sure.
