Rawalpindi: Khushdil Shah, who scored the fastest T20 century by a Pakistan batsman last night in National T20 Cup, has aimed to play more such innings like this in the future.
Khushdil registered a 35-ball 100 which included eight boundaries and nine sixes. His remarkable knock helped Southern Punjab to beat Sindh by two wickets and claimed their first win of the ongoing tournament.
“When I walked on the pitch, we were struggling on 43/4 but when Hussain joined me in the middle we planned the partnership and decided to stay confident and aimed to hit a couple of boundaries every over,” he said.
“Our previous matches didn’t go well as we were unable to finish them. I had a feeling when I took on the spinner initially that if I bat till the end, I can score a hundred. It is certainly a great feeling to have made this record,” he added.
My aim is to play more such innings in the future. One can truly enjoy and celebrate such innings when they help your team to win: Khushdil Shah #NationalT20Cup | #HarHaalMainCricket | #SINvSP pic.twitter.com/dju6kYnH2i
