In a historic showdown at the ICC Cricket World Cup, Mohammad Rizwan and Abdullah Shafique displayed an outstanding partnership that propelled Pakistan to a record-breaking six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka. This monumental achievement marked the highest successful run chase in the history of the ICC World Cup.

Initially facing a shaky start, the duo of Rizwan and Shafique orchestrated a remarkable turnaround for Pakistan. Even after Abdullah Shafique’s dismissal following his century, Mohammad Rizwan continued to anchor the innings, ultimately remaining unbeaten with an impressive score of 131.

Abdullah Shafique’s spectacular 113-run innings played a pivotal role in Pakistan‘s stunning comeback. Mohammad Rizwan, still standing strong at the crease, approached a century himself, ensuring a steady flow of runs. Saud Shakeel joined the chase after the departure of Abdullah Shafique, maintaining the team’s momentum.

Sri Lanka had initially imposed control over the game, with their bowlers maintaining a tight line, making scoring opportunities scarce. Despite the early loss of Babar Azam, Abdullah Shafique and Mohammad Rizwan‘s determined partnership steered Pakistan towards a historic victory.

Sri Lanka had set a formidable target of 345 runs, but Pakistan’s exceptional batting display secured them an unforgettable triumph in this thrilling World Cup encounter.
