Iftikhar Ahmed is one of the most exciting batsmen in the world. He has hit four six-ball maximums in a row, making him the third Indian to reach this milestone. Iftikhar is a talented cricketer who always tries to improve his batting. He has a knack for putting on spectacular batting displays and is a great choice for Test cricket. This article will look at how Iftikhar Ahmed has done it.
Iftikhar Ahmed hits four sixes.
Iftikhar Ahmed has hit four six-ball maximums against India, helping Pakistan to 159/8 from 12 overs. He started his innings quietly under pressure and then switched gears with four sixes off the Indian spinners to add pace to the Pakistan innings. At fifty/2 in nine overs, Iftikhar was on a run-a-ball pace, but he could target Indian spinner Ravi Ashwin and hit three maximums in four balls.
In the Powerplay, Iftikhar Ahmed hits his fourth six-ball fifty and is in a strong position. He hits the first ball over deep midwicket and the second one cleanly in front of the middle stump. The crowd erupts in raptures. Mohammed Shami bowls the last over, and the match is still in hand.
Iftikhar Ahmed’s stunning innings helped Pakistan get past 159/8 in 20 overs. The opening pair of Shan Masood and Arshdeep Singh kept India on their toes, but Iftikhar’s four sixes turned the match around. Iftikhar was first hit over long-on by Ashwin, and Shan Masood was out lbw when Ashwin was caught behind at long-on. After Iftikhar was caught, Pakistan reached the target in 20 overs, and Iftikhar had a good score in his second T20 World Cup match.
Earlier, Ashwin was bowling Iftikhar Ahmed, and he hit the ball hard. He hits the deck hard while Masood gets out of the way by pulling the ball low. Iftikhar then hit a six-ball maximum over long-on and followed it up with a short delivery to long-off.
Shaheen Afridi hits four sixes.
India is chasing a target of 160, and Iftikhar Ahmed is in form. He has hit four six-ball maximums in his last four innings. His last one of the Test began with a clean shot over a fine leg, which he flicked up for six. It sailed high into the air, taking him to 63 off 64 balls. The hosts are now at 157/3.
Iftikhar Ahmed begins his innings with a six-ball maximum off the first delivery of Axar Patel’s first over. The first ball he hits is over deep midwicket, and the second ball he hits cleanly in front of the middle stump. The umpire is unsatisfied with the delivery but says it’s not out.
Iftikhar Ahmed’s four six-ball maximums boosted Pakistan after Arshdeep Singh, and Shan Masood had slowed the Indian innings. The spinners had been trying to stop the run flow, but Iftikhar Ahmed had other ideas. He had two consecutive boundaries off Axar Patel’s next over, which made him reach fifty in thirty-two balls. In his third over, Iftikhar hit a six-ball maximum, and then he hit four more six-ball maximums in the next over.
As expected, the Indians will be looking to strike early. This is a great opportunity for India to take the lead. A win here would help the team reach the record of most wins across all formats, surpassing Australia’s 38 in 2003. It would also give India a much-needed boost and help the team reach the final of the World T20.
The Pakistani team had to bowl well to stop the Indians’ run chase. But it wasn’t enough. Mujeeb and Farooqi bowled two overs each, but both failed to stop the run chase. After a wicket in the seventh over, Nawaz scored 1 run.
Iftikhar Ahmed turned the tide of the match with a magnificent half-century. He scored 51 runs off 34 deliveries to rescue Pakistan from the brink of defeat. Earlier, Arshdeep Singh had struck early to remove Pakistan captain Babar Azam for a golden duck. The pacemaker bounced Mohammad Rizwan for four runs off 12 balls to end Pakistan’s third-wicket stand on 76 runs.
In the last session of the innings, Iftikhar Ahmed hit four six-ball maximums – two in the first and two in the second. With this wicket, Pakistan had made it through the first ten overs, and Bhuvi is yet to bowl an eleventh over. The opening partnership between Masood and Iftikhar has reached double digits.
The first six-ball maximum comes when Iftikhar Ahmed cuts the first ball over the deep midwicket. On the other hand, the second one comes cleanly in front of the middle stump. However, the wicketkeeper, Axar Patel, had problems with the internet connection.
After a six, Iftikhar Ahmed hits back-to-back sixes in the following over. The next two balls go downtown, with the first clearing the fence with ease. The third one brings in acrobatics at the ropes while Rahul tries to palm the ball back inside the ropes while diving for it.
Iftikhar Ahmed’s knock of four six-ball maximums in the second innings took the total to 160 for Pakistan. The opening quicks bowled well, while the spinners kept Pakistan’s innings under control. Hardik Pandya and Shaheen helped keep the momentum going in the later stages, while Iftikhar Ahmed and Haris Mughal batted well and fought back for a good total.
Iftikhar Ahmed was in good form on the last test day against Ireland. He reached 63 off just 58 balls before falling to Ashwin. The pace bowler’s first delivery was hit for six over long-on, and the next two were pulled over mid-off. Axar Patel smashed three sixes off Ashwin in his fourth over. The first six slog-swept over the leg side, and the second went 97 meters down the ground. Ashwin threw two more for six in the final over, which was taken for a duck. Iftikhar was out two balls later.
Pakistan needs nine runs in the last over, but India is only on 91 after Ashwin’s dismissal. Ashwin’s first over is full of danger, but Ashwin is starting to bowl better. He bowls two or three to turn and is causing the Pakistani batters a lot of trouble. Ashwin is putting pressure on Pakistan with the down-the-ground shot, but Iftikhar gets the ball through the third deep point.
India’s Kohli and Ashwin are chasing a win. India has won several T20 World Cups and is looking to repeat the feat on Sunday. If the batting line-up stays healthy and focused, they will win the series. Ashwin, a left-arm spinner, has been one of the best bowlers in the world. The MCG is agog.
India captain Rohit Sharma had tried to dismiss Iftikhar Ahmed, but the pace bowler had other ideas. After a chipping one from Ashwin, Iftikhar Ahmed hit a six-over long-on. Iftikhar Ali struck three six-ball maximums in the next over from Axar Patel. He reached his fifty in just over three overs. Iftikhar Ahmed was eventually caught leg-before by Mohammed Shami in the next over. This wicket ended the third-wicket stand between the two.
Iftikhar Ahmed bowls four six-ball maximums in his third ODI, and Pakistan has a massive lead over India. Despite the big lead, Pakistan still needs a lot of work. In the last two overs, they were at 91/2 and 98/5. Iftikhar Ahmed smashed the first ball over deep midwicket and the second ball cleanly past midwicket. This partnership took Pakistan to 159/9 in their allotted 20 overs.
Earlier, Arshdeep Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin bowled fast, and wicketkeeper Iftikhar started with the new ball and was dropped by India captain Rohit Sharma. Iftikhar began calmly, but later on, smashed two sixes off the same over off Axar Patel. This brought him to fifty in only 32 balls. Mohammed Shami trapped him leg-before in his next over and ended a 76-run third-wicket stand with Shan Masood.
Iftikhar Ahmed unleashes a slog-sweep that hits the deck hard. He then nudges the ball down to long-on. In the next over, he also hits a full-length delivery to long-on. Then, Iftikhar steps out and smokes Ashwin over long-on. Later, Masood hits a straight six, and Iftikhar takes a catch on the boundary ropes. Once he has landed, he carries the ball to fine-leg.
England is looking good on their batting and fielding strategy. They need to keep their wickets down to four and keep batting over 13 in the last over. But Pakistan is still chasing a modest target and needs at least two boundaries per over. After a couple of wickets, they’re cruising toward victory.
After Iftikhar Ahmed bowled four six-ball maximums in his first two overs, Pakistan’s batting side remained in control. They hoped to stifle India and end their run chase in a tight contest.
