Pakistani opener Abid Hassan thinks to lose a match barriers celebration of a debut century. Despite the centuries of Mohammad Rizwan and Abid Hassan, Pakistan lost the fourth ODI by 6 runs on the target of 278 runs.
Two centuries is not enough to steer a team
Therefore, Two centuries isn’t enough to save a match in the new era of cricket. However, Mohammad Rizwan, the 26 years old right-hander batsman picked his second century on the current series and his career today, the 104 runs inning came from 102 balls with 9 fours and a six as well. On the other hand, Abid Ali picked his debut century on the debut match only. He scored 112 runs from 119 balls with 9 fours too. Both can regret their contribution as they lost the match.
To lose a match barriers celebration of a debut century
Abid thinks a victory can bring them a perfect occasion to celebrate. “Obviously, had the team won, it would have been a great occasion. My century individually, and that too on debut, is a matter of happiness, but had Pakistan won, it would have been better and memorable.”
Accordingly, regular opener Imam-ul-Haq fall on sick and Abdi Hasan got the chance to open, “I was told on Friday morning (of my debut), as Imam had fallen sick,” Abid said. “I was positive and happy because my season was good, so I was thinking whenever I get a chance I will prove myself and prove my performances.”
Abid Hasan dedicated his century and conclude with determination, “I will dedicate my century to my daughter and my family. To play for Pakistan was a dream and I needed the door to open and it opened for me. Shan (Masood) got out early, so obviously we disappointed. But, Haris (Sohail) told me to play on, I played my shots positively. And with confidence, so that what I wanted to do. I played every ball on merit.”
Therefore, Pakistani opener Abid Hassan thinks to lose a match barriers celebration of a debut century. Hope Abdi Hassan will continue it through the ICC World Cup-19 as well.
