Pakistan batsman Babar Azam has revealed that his century against New Zealand was “one of the best innings” he has played, and added that it was made all the more special since the national team won and kept their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup semi-finals alive.
Azam was named Man of the Match for scoring an unbeaten 101, which came off 127 balls and included 11 boundaries.
“If you finish the match and the team wins, then that does provide you with a lot of confidence,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “I think this is one of the best innings I’ve played so I’m very happy. It was very important for us to win and it was a difficult wicket and Allah helped me to score runs on it.”
Pakistan’s next World Cup match will be against Afghanistan at Headingley on Saturday.
