Hasan Ali Reaches 100 ODI Wickets Against New Zealand
Hasan Ali claimed his 100 ODIth cricket wicket, joining Wasim Akram's record, during a match against New Zealand in Bengaluru, India.
The medium-pace bowler Hasan Ali reached 100 ODI wickets in Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday during Pakistan’s World Cup match with New Zealand.
In the eleventh over of the innings of play, the 29-year-old eliminated Devon Conway, the opening batsman for New Zealand, for 35 runs, marking his 66th match to date.
Hasan joins Wasim Akram as the 22nd Pakistani bowler to claim 100+ ODI wickets.
In Pakistan’s most recent game against Bangladesh in Kolkata, Shaheen Shah Afridi also hit the 100-wick mark. Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, had earlier chosen to ball first after winning the coin flip versus New Zealand.
Pakistan is again back in the running to make the World Cup playoffs after South Africa crushed New Zealand by 190 runs on Wednesday.
With the tournament’s top four going to the semi-finals, Pakistan sits two points behind the fourth-place Black Caps. Despite New Zealand’s far higher gross run rate, Babar Azam’s team believes they have a chance when they play today.
After suffering three losses in their first four games of play, New Zealand’s eight points right now place them fourth out of the ten teams competing. Pakistan needs to win in order to maintain their six-point lead and advance to the semi-finals.
As of right now, the probabilities of win that are being discussed involve playing second and completing their goal with more than 15 overs remaining.
Pakistan is accustomed to such situations, and fortunately for them, they recovered their form against a faltering Bangladeshi team in their most recent game with their best players firing. Prior to this, they had lost four straight games after winning their first two.
After suffering a thumb trauma, normal captain Kane Williamson has returned to New Zealand.
Williamson played in the Oct. 13 play versus Bangladesh in Chennai, having only recently returned from knee surgery. He suffered a broken thumb in that match and lost the rest of the game.
All-rounder Shadab of Pakistan is still unfit for participation following the head injury he sustained during the one-wicket loss in opposition to South Africa.
In addition to Williamson, the Kiwis named bowler Ish Sodhi to replace wounded seamer Matt Henry; Will Young took the captain’s spot; and Mark Chapman took the role of James Neesham.
