T20 cricket means four-sixes. Runs are the key in this short format of cricket. In the run game, batsmen usually do not pay attention to the wicket. But so far there are seven 10-wicket wins chasing 130 or more runs in international T20 cricket as well. In these seven matches, they chased more than 150 runs and won three. Interestingly, the name of Pakistan is associated with these three victories. Where they won two, they lost the rest. Chasing 200 runs against the English in the Pakistan-England second T20I in Karachi on Thursday, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan scored an incredible 10-wicket victory for the hosts. Which is the highest 10-wicket win in T20 history. There is no other record for most runs chased without a wicket. New Zealand won the second highest run chase with 10 wickets in hand. It is again against Pakistan. Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson chased down Pakistan’s 169 in Hamilton in 2016. Pakistan’s record for the third highest run chase without a wicket. Chasing 152 runs against arch-rivals India in the 2021 T20 World Cup, the pair of Babar-Rizwan won the team without a wicket. England’s 10-wicket win with the fourth highest run chase. Chasing 140 runs against hosts New Zealand in Wellington in 2013, England won without a wicket. Three wins of 130 runs at the fifth position. South Africa won this run chase against Pakistan in Johannesburg in 2007. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s opening pair has also set a world record. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have made a partnership of 150 or more runs five times in international T20. In this format, no pair could score 150 runs more times than Babar-Rizwan pair. 197 runs – vs, South Africa (2021)
150 runs – vs, England (2021)
152 runs – vs, India (2021)
158 runs – vs, West Indies (2021)
203 runs – vs, England (2022) Babar-Rizwan’s unbeaten 203-run partnership yesterday is the highest run-chase partnership in the history of T20 Internationals.
