ABU DHABI: Pakistan set 190-run target for Namibia in their fourth match of International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 World Cup at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
Rizwan and Babar had earlier upped the ante on Namibia, as they became the only duo to score 1,000 runs in T20 in a calendar year, as the Pakistani skipper smashed a half-century, his 14th — breaking Indian captain Virat Kohli’s record of 13 half-tons.
Mohammad Rizwan was given out leg before wicket (lbw) before a successful review by Pakistan showed the ball had pitched outside the leg stump, granting the Pakistani batsman a new lease of life.
Pakistan got off to a shaky start as the Namibia bowlers did not stray from their line and length much.
The match was started at 7pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
Earlier, Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first against Namibia.
