Babar Azam and Muhammad Rizwan Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd T20I 2021

Pakistan captain Babar Azam blasted a superb century to lead Pakistan to a win against South Africa by nine wickets in the third Twenty20 international at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday.

Pakistan, who were chasing a sizeable target of 204 set by South Africa, finished at 205-1 with a full two overs in hand. Azam’s 122 runs partnered with Mohammad Rizwan’s unbeaten 73 runs brought crickets fans to their feet in applause.

According to sports reporter Faizan Lakhani, this was Pakistan’s highest partnership for any wicket in T20Is.

“Previous was 143* for 2nd wicket by Mohammad Hafeez and Ahmed Shahzad vs Zimbabwe in 2013. Also the highest opening wicket partnership against South Africa, previous was 145 by Gayle & Smith,” he tweeted.

“This is another example of why Pakistan should always chase in T20Is if they win the toss,” said sports writer Rehanul Haq. “When they know the target, no room to think about attacking approach or conservative, the total decides that for you. Plus recent NT20 cups + PSL has prepared these guys for planning big chases.”

Azam's 122 runs partnered with Mohammad Rizwan's unbeaten 73 runs brought crickets fans to their feet in applause.
