Muhammad Rizwan Breaks Babar Azam and Virat Kohli’s Record for Fastest 3000-Run Chase in T20

Pakistani cricketer Muhammad Rizwan has broken the record set by Babar Azam and Virat Kohli for the fastest 3000-run chase in T20 cricket.

Rizwan accomplished this feat by reaching the milestone in his 79th innings, surpassing both Babar Azam and former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who achieved the milestone in their 81st innings.

The historic achievement came during the second T20 match between Pakistan and New Zealand, where Pakistan emerged victorious by defeating New Zealand by 7 wickets. The men in green successfully chased down the target of 91 runs in just the 12th over, with the loss of 3 wickets.

Opting to field first after winning the toss at the Rawalpindi Stadium, Pakistan's experienced bowlers proved too much for New Zealand's batting lineup, resulting in regular wickets falling. Notably, Chapman was the top scorer for New Zealand with 19 runs.

Pakistan's bowling attack, led by Shaheen Shah Afridi, dominated the match, with Afridi dismissing three players. Mohammad Amir, Abrar, and Shadab also contributed with two wickets each, restricting New Zealand to a low total.

Although Pakistan faced early setbacks with Saim Ayub, Babar Azam, and Usman Khan failing to make significant contributions, Muhammad Rizwan's unbeaten innings of 45 runs guided Pakistan to victory.
