Fakhar Zaman, a Pakistani cricketer, scored his first century in the World Cup against New Zealand. Pakistan was trying to chase down New Zealand’s high score of 401-6 in order to stay in the tournament. Zaman reached his hundred by hitting a boundary and a six off spinner Mitchell Santner. He hit a total of nine sixes and six boundaries in just 63 balls. Pakistan needed to win this match and improve their net run-rate to have a chance of making it to the semi-finals. Zaman remained undefeated on 106, while captain Babar Azam was 47 not out when rain interrupted the match in the 22nd over. Before this match, Pakistan had won three games and lost four in the World Cup. Zaman had not played in the earlier games due to poor form and a knee injury but returned in the last game against Bangladesh, where he scored 81. New Zealand had set a score of 401-6, with Rachin Ravindra scoring a century and Kane Williamson making 95.
