Anwar Ali once again that he is the power house that Pakistan were needing at the end of the batting line and yet again he set the stage on fire with his blistering innings of 46 that came of just 17 balls. Anwar Ali is the tail ending hitting solution for Pakistan.
Anwar in the past has played some reasonable knocks in both ODIs and T20 formats and in all of them he played aggressively. He scores over run a ball every time he goes out to bat. Today he did the wonder and struck the ball over the strike rate of 200%. Pakistan needed some fireworks right at the end to win the match and Anwar Ali provided with some heavy ones. His first target was the right arm off spinner Shehan, the first hit went over the leg side in to the deep mid-wicket stands.
Shehan fired this one in and Anwar was ready for it, he bent his left knee and rammed it over the leg side for his first six. Jayasuriya didn’t learn anything from this and again fired one and this time it went as a full toss down the leg side.
