How can we forget the scene in Melbourne where Virat Kohli smashed Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf with sixes in the 19th over. At the same level, the same bowler is his teammate..
Pakistan cricket team is currently not playing any international matches. But, in the Bangladesh Premier League, some players are showing their ability with their playing style. The key players in the team, Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Rauf, were the special attraction of this tournament. Apart from them some other players are also playing in it. Among them especially Iftikhar Ahmed is showing his ability. Hitting a century with Tupan’s batting, he surpassed the star players. Harris also destroyed the bowling of his pacer partner Pakistan in a century innings.
A match between Fortune Barisal vs Rangpur Raiders was played at Chattogram on Thursday 19th January. Barisal batted first and captain, Bangladesh superstar Shakib Al Hasan scored an unbeaten 89 runs off 43 balls and gave the local fans good entertainment. However, in this match, Iftikhar Ahmed, the batsman of Pakistan Storm, who is a part of the Pakistan T20 team, stood out as a special attraction.

During this partnership, Iftikhar launched a ferocious attack on the bowlers. The Pakistani batsman completed his century in the last over, that too in just 45 balls. It is noteworthy that this is the first century in Iftikhar’s T20 career.
In his innings, Iftikhar scored 78 runs with the help of fours and sixes. The right-handed batsman hit a total of 9 sixes and also had 6 fours in his innings.
Rauf will hit like Kohli..
His mashing of his Pakistani partner Haris became a special attraction in this whirlwind century. Iftikhar hit 3 consecutive sixes in the third, fourth and fifth balls of the 19th over. Almost three months ago, Virat Kohli also killed Badi Haris with two consecutive sixes in the 19th over. In this match, Haris Rauf scored 42 runs and took 2 wickets.
After a massive score of 238 runs, Barisal decided her victory in a big way. Mehdi Hasan Miraj restricted Rangpur to just 171 for 3 wickets and won the match by 67 runs.
