Many records in T20 cricket are being broken as well as very interesting matches in PSL. Usman Khan has now robbed the celebration by scoring the quickest century in Pakistan Super League history.
Multan Sultans registered the highest successful run chase in Pakistan Super League (PSL) history. When they chased down a target of 243 against Peshawar Zalmi. As if that wasn’t enough, they followed it up with the highest-ever team total in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) history the following night (March 11, 2023). Riding on the back of a memorable inning by Usman Khan. Who scored 120 off 43 deliveries at an astonishing strike rate of 279.07.
Usman Khan’s record-breaking hundred has taken the cricket world by storm. The Pakistani batsman achieved a stunning feat in just 36 balls against Quetta during a PSL 8 T20 game. Breaking the previous record of 41 balls held by Riley Russow. The highlight of his innings was undoubtedly the nine sixes and 12 fours he smashed in his innings, setting an aggressive tone that never lets up.
However, in the post-match conference, the hard hitting batsman. Who is settled in UAE and plays franchise cricket over there, seemed hesitant to commit to Pakistan.
“You know how uncertain conditions are in Pakistan. No one knows what will happen next. If you score in one match and don’t perform in the next two matches, people start criticizing you. If you perform in another country, only then Pakistani consider you good enough. I will continue to play the way I am doing right now,” Usman said.
“I didn’t get a chance to play at a higher level in Pakistan. Ans I used to be in second XI tournaments all the time despite performing. I have played as a local player in UAE and performed well. When you don’t get opportunity to play first-class in Pakistan, you are bound to move to another country,” he added.
