ISLAMABAD – Abdul Razzaq played one of the Greatest match winning knock in the history of ODIs while chasing 287 for victory against South Africa. Abdul Razzaq smashed 7 fours and 10 Sixes in his brutal knock of 109* of just 72 balls. He single handedly won the match for Pakistan.
There are match-winning centuries and there are Match-winning Centuries. You will travel far and wide, maybe even go back in time, but you will struggle to find a more remarkable game-stealing hundred than the one the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi saw tonight.
An outrageous 72-ball 109 from Abdul Razzaq dragged Pakistan to a series-levelling target of 287 against South Africa, one ball and one wicket left.
It was scarcely-scriptable and only when Razzaq hit his tenth six in the last over, slogging Albie Morkel over midwicket to climax an unimaginable orgy of power-hitting, was a Pakistan win even worth contemplating; until then he had played to a backdrop of impending, imminent doom.
Abdul Razzaq is a Pakistani right arm fast-medium bowler and a right-handed batsman and a member of Pakistan cricket team.
He emerged in international cricket in 1996 with his One Day International debut against Zimbabwe at his home ground in Gaddafi Stadium, Pakistan, just one month before his seventeenth birthday. He has played 265 ODIs and 46 Tests for Pakistan.
