In the starting lineup for this game, Babar’s current run total was 4,023 runs, which was third on the all-time list at the time. The format he uses in this book gives him 36 fifties and three centuries to his name.

While the United States (USA) were preparing to play Pakistan, they set a 160-run target for them. Despite Pakistan’s top-order containing Mohammad Rizwan, Usman Khan and Fakhar Zaman, the USA bowlers scored 46 runs off the first over of the match, which was a superb start with the ball for them.

However, after losing three wickets in a row, Pakistani skipper Babar Azam and Shadab Khan executed a cautious strategy that allowed them to keep their side in the game.

It was Babar and Shadab’s 72-run partnership that kept Pakistan on top in the second innings, but after Shadab scored 40 runs in 25 deliveries, he walked back to the pavilion after he had scored his second forty.

The wickets continued to fall after Shadab was dismissed and wicketkeeper Azam Khan got out on a golden duck right after Shadab had been dismissed.

There were 44 points scored by Babar Azam out of 43. The innings of Iftikhar Ahmed came to an end after he scored 18 runs.

Pakistan were able to complete their innings with 159-7 in their allocated overs through Shaheen Afridi’s (23 off 16 balls) invaluable contribution at the top of the order.

It is important to play XI’s

As in the previous matches, Steven Taylor was the captain of the team and Saurabh Netravalkar was the wicketkeeper. Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Saurabh Netravalkar, Ali Khan complete the lineup of USA.

In the absence of Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Azam Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Amir, Haris Rauf, there are no Pakistani players.
