Pakistani batsman Zeeshan Malik has said that his goal for the National T20 Cup is to finish among the top five run-scorers in the tournament.
“The pitches in Multan are great for batting and I am enjoying scoring runs here. My aim is to finish amongst the top five run-getters in this tournament to repay the faith that our coach Mohammad Wasim has put in me by promoting me from the Second XI team to the First XI,” he was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) website.
Currently, Zeeshan is the highest run-scorer as he has scored 192 runs in four matches for Northern, which includes two half-centuries, at an average of 48 and a strike-rate of 139.13.
The 23-year-old batsman has made it to the top of the list with a recent stunning performance, where he smashed a 52-ball 84, which included nine boundaries and a six, against Sindh. He also gained the title of ‘Man of the Match’ as northern won against Sindh by 13 runs.
84 off 52! Well played Zeeshan Malik 👏
