Srinagar: Pakistan premier opening batter Fakhar Zaman’s bad patch continued as he was stunned by Sri Lanka pacer Pramod Madushan in the Super 4 clash of Asia Cup 2023 on Thursday in Colombo.
Fakhar Zaman perished early in the must-win encounter with batter stumps shattered by Sri Lanka pacer.
Fakhar Zaman didn’t look comfortable at the crease and looked scratchy.
Sri Lanka Pramod Madushan bowled a sensational inswinging yorker at 138kph. Fakhar Zaman looked completely clueless against it as he was off-balance and half-forward as he attempted to push the ball.
He got beaten on the inside edge and the ball went on to hit the stumps. The batter didn’t expect a late swing.
Fakhar Zaman managed just 4 runs off 11 balls and it’s fair to say that his failure against Sri Lanka wouldn’t have done any good to him.
In the last 10 ODI innings, he has scored 190 runs at an average of 19.00. His scores read: 19, 14, 33, 2, 30, 27, 14, 20, 27, 4.
