If a batsman is playing with a half-century, then how can terrorists stop him from batting? Let us know the answer to this question.
When the Sri Lankan team was attacked by terrorists, Khurram Manzoor was playing with a half-century. Later the match had to be cancelled.
At the age of just 16, this player made his debut in first-class cricket. After this, the expectations from this player got blown up. The selectors had then given chances to dozens of openers in the team. The trials of the players for this important place were going on continuously. During this time this batsman was also given a chance. It didn’t disappoint on a few occasions. But then came the dreadful moment when terror and cricket came face to face. Today is the birthday of this player. Khurram Manzoor of Pakistan Cricket Team was born on 10 June 1986 in Karachi. Let us know how the terrorists stopped this batsman from playing the important innings of his life.
In fact, in 2009, when the Sri Lankan team was on a tour of Pakistan, the second Test of the series between the two teams started in Lahore from March 1. In this match, Sri Lankan team scored 606 runs while batting first. Thilan Samaraweera played an excellent innings of 214 runs for the team, while Tillakaratne Dilshan scored 145 runs in 170 balls before being run out. Apart from him, Kumar Sangakkara also scored 104 runs. If the Sri Lankan team scored a strong score in the first innings, then the Pakistani openers also had the responsibility of giving the team a strong start.
After the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus…
Opener Khurram Manzoor and Salman Butt landed for the opening for Pakistan. Both did not disappoint either. By the end of the second day’s play, Pakistan had scored 110 runs for the loss of one wicket. Salman Butt returned to the pavilion on the last ball of the day. That too by unlucky run out. He played an important innings of 48 runs in 74 balls. At the end of the day’s play, Khurram Manzoor remained unbeaten on 59. He hit 11 fours in the innings of 71 balls. But after this there was a dreadful terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in which many visiting players were seriously injured. The match was canceled immediately after this attack and preparations started to send the Sri Lankan team back to the country. In this way, Khurram Manzoor remained unbeaten on 59 runs in this match.
Batting for six hours against Australia
Manzoor batted for six hours to save the Hobart Test on the 2009-10 tour of Australia, although he could not save the team from defeat. His best performance came against South Africa in October 2013 when he scored 146 runs in Abu Dhabi. Pakistan won this match by seven wickets. Khurram scored 817 runs in 16 Tests for Pakistan at an average of 28.17. It had one century and seven half-centuries. He scored 236 runs in 7 ODIs at an average of 33.71. So he could score only 11 runs in 3 T20 matches.
