Sania Mirza Shoaib Malik runs record

As Pakistan’s former captain Shoaib Malik scored 10,000 runs in T20 cricket, wife and Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza praises her husband.

Sania Mirza took to Twitter to laud her husband for his impeccable consistency and hard work. “Longevity, patience, hard work, sacrifice and belief, so proud,” she wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, after achieving the impressive milestone, Shoaib Malik dedicated his new record to his parents.

“I would like to congratulate the people of Pakistan as I am the first Asian cricketer to have reached this milestone of making 10,000 runs in T20 cricket & I hope I will carry on in the way I have been playing. I’d like to dedicate this milestone to my parents”, he tweeted. 

 

“Also a big thankyou at the same time to all my fellow players, ground staff members, fans and supporters,” Malik added.

Shoaib Malik has played 394 T20 matches in the past fifteen years, recording 10027 runs at an average of 37+. Although he is yet to list a hundred in this format, the batsman has scored 61 fifties.

He also ranks in the elite list which includes Chris Gayle (13296) and Keiron Pollard (10370) of West Indies.

On the other hand, many senior players including Imran Farhat and Rahat Ali were dropped for poor performance in the National T20 Cup.
