Lahore: Pakistan’s energatic opening batsman Ahmad Shahzad reached the milestone of 5,000 runs in T20 Cricket, the second Pakistani to achieve the feat.

Ahmad Shahzad acheived this honor with an innings of 27 against Rawalpindi for Lahore on Thursday, on the occasion of his 26th birthday.

The 26-year-old batsman said that to be the quickest Pakistani to reach 5,000 runs gives him immense pleasure and hunger to score more.

He termed the achievement as special and close to his heart.

The flamboyant batsman further said, “Being the quickest Pakistani to reach 5,000 T20 runs is very close to my heart and it can only pump me to go further and work harder on my batting and make further records.”

Before Shahzad, Shoaib Malik was the first Pakistani to reach the milestone of 5,000 T20 runs. Malik is currently Pakistan’s top T20 run scorer with 7,295 runs to his credit in the shortest format of professional cricket.

Shahzad, reached the milestone in the 181st innings of his career, surpassing Malik’s record of 182 innings to become the quickest from Pakistan to complete 5,000 T20 runs.

The opening batsman, who was struggling with form earlier, has so far looked in decent form during the ongoing National T20 tournament scoring 215 runs in six innings with help of two half-centuries.
