Two Matches were played yesterday in National T20 Cup 2020. The first match was won by Northern and the second by Central Punjab. In the second match, Abdullah Shafique was awarded the MOTM for his brilliant century on T20 debut.
Central Punjab won by match convincingly by chasing 200 runs with 7 wickets in hand. Kamran Akmal set the ton for the chase but Abdullah Shafique stunned everyone with his classy batting.
Abdullah Shafique has made many records in his debut match. He has become the 4th Pakistan batsmen to score a century on T20 debut.
Also he is now the only 2nd player in the world who has score a hundred on First Class and T20 debut.
Abdullah played in the 2nd XI for Central Punjab in the previous season. But now was promoted to the 1st X1 in National T20 Cup due to his brilliant performance.
He has played his shots all around the ground and showed that he can serve Pakistan for very long in the near future.
Pakistan really needs players like Abdullah Shafique and Haider Ali to play their natural game without any fear especially in the T20 format. Having players like these will help Pakistan batting lineup to score huge totals.
