حیرت انگیز! انڈین میڈیا شعیب ملک کے ٹی ٹونٹی ریکارڈ پر دل کھول کر تعریف، ٹی ٹونٹی میں کوہلی اور دھونی سے بھی عظیم قرار دے دیا

Shoaib Malik the former Pakistani skipper and now a batting pillar in the middle order has hit a major record recently. Shoaib Malik has achieved 2000 runs in t20 cricket and by getting these runs he is now the first Asian batsman to have scored these many runs. Shoaib Malik does not play test cricket any more. He took his retirement from the longer version of the game some years back. Now he only plays ODI and T20 cricket and with the kind of performances he is giving in the limited overs cricket it seems he made the right decision. Malik is currently the number three batsman in the list of highest runs getter in T20 internationals. Before him are the two New Zealand batsman with Martin Guptill at number one and Brendon McCullum at number two. The margin is not that much though. There is every chance for Malik to become the highest runs getter in this format.

Roughly counted Guptill is around two hundred runs ahead of the Pakistani middle order batter. So fir Malik getting to those runs is not that much hard. He surely can surpass McCullum who does not play cricket now for the New Zealand team. Malik with the kind of batting form he is having, there is a strong chance that soon we will see him getting to the number two spot in this ranking. Malik is currently in Zimbabwe where he is playing the tri nation t20 series against Zimbabwe and Australia. Pakistan cricket team along with Australia have already qualified for the finals. The final will be played in a couple of days and Pakistan will be looking to win this game and they have a team to do that. They have defeated Australia yesterday as well.

Indian media also reported the record Shoaib Malik has made. In fact the Indian media praised the efforts of the Pakistani batter and mentioned that even the Indian runs scoring machines like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have not been able to get near to the number of runs Malik has. The two Indian batsmen are considered to be the best in the game. Virat Kohli in particular is a brilliant batsman and he scores runs across all three formats. MS Dhoni does not play test cricket any more but he is still a part of the Indian team in limited overs cricket and he too is not near to the amount of runs Malik has scored. So it is a bog moment for Pakistan and Shoaib Malik. He has been a great batsman for the Pakistan team and these days he is enjoying his batting a lot. He has scored runs in almost all the games that he has played in the recent past. Malik is definitely a batsman whom the Pakistan team will miss a lot after his retirement next year.
