Fans Praise Fakhar Zaman in Response to Sehwag's Protein Boost Post


 

Fakhar Zaman played amazingly for Pakistan in the rain-affected ODI World Cup match against New Zealand. Scoring 126 runs off 81 balls with 8 fours and 11 sixes, he helped Pakistan win by 21 runs through the DLS method.


Virender Sehwag, the former Indian opener turned commentator, praised Fakhar Zaman's outstanding performance. He also questioned why Pakistan didn't play the 33-year-old batter in earlier matches, opting for Imam-ul-Haq despite his poor form.


Sehwag expressed his thoughts on social media, saying, "Fakhar Zaman played the best innings for Pakistan. I don't know why he was kept on the bench for most of the tournament. He's got both the power and the passion."

Here’s a look at the X-post by Virender Sehwag:

 


The Pakistan captain chose to bowl first after winning the toss, and New Zealand set a massive score of 401 runs. Kane Williamson and Rachin Ravindra played crucial innings of 95 and 108 runs, respectively, contributing to New Zealand's total.


In the chase, Pakistan lost an early wicket with Abdullah Shafique falling to Tim Southee at just 6 runs. However, Fakhar Zaman's stunning century (126 off 81) and captain Babar Azam's half-century (66 runs, 6 fours, and 2 sixes) propelled Pakistan to 200 runs for the loss of 1 wicket in 25.3 overs before rain interrupted the match.


Ultimately, Pakistan was declared the winner by 21 runs using the DLS method, keeping their hopes alive in the tournament.
