T10 Cricket League: Sindhis vs Rajputs: A 16-ball 74 is not something you hear every day, but Afghanistan opener Mohammed Shahzad did it and gave the world another demonstration as to why he is considered among the most brutal hitters in modern day cricket. It seems the 30-year-old is in the form of his life. He spearheaded the chase for the Rajputs in the tournament opener and helped his side win the match in merely four overs. His blitzkrieg comprised of eight sixes and six fours. Brendon McCullum played a quiet spectator from the other end as he remained unbeaten on 21 off eight balls. Shahzad hit the fastest 50 in the format off 12 balls, something Yuvraj Singh did in the 2007 inaugural World T20. Shahzad’s strike rate was an unbelievable 462.50.

The match over in 18 minutes, something that is unheard off in cricket. Earlier, Rajputs won the toss and opt to bowl. The Rajputs look really strong to go deep in the tournament.
