In a thrilling T20 match against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe faced an initial setback but cricketer Sikandar Raja showcased an extraordinary performance that has set a new benchmark. Bowling four overs, Raja conceded only 13 runs, claiming three wickets and leaving the opposing batsmen in awe. Not stopping there, Raja flaunted his prowess with the bat, scoring an impressive 62 runs off 42 balls, including five boundaries and two sixes.
What makes this feat even more remarkable is Raja’s consistent form in the last five T20 matches. Notably, in each of these matches, he scored a minimum of fifty runs and secured at least two wickets as a bowler. No cricketer has achieved this unique combination in T20 history until now. This incredible streak began in the match against Rwanda, where Raja scored 58 runs off 36 balls and took three wickets for three runs.
Continuing his stellar performance, Raja amassed 65 runs against Nigeria, accompanied by two wickets for 13 runs. Against Kenya, he contributed 82 runs in 48 balls, while also taking two wickets for 21 runs. Facing Ireland, Raja scored 65 runs in 42 balls and dismissed three players for 28 runs in his bowling spell. His latest achievement against Sri Lanka, where he scored 65 runs in 42 balls and took three wickets for 13 runs, solidifies Sikandar Raja’s outstanding form.
This exceptional all-rounder has been in outstanding form, leaving cricket enthusiasts eagerly anticipating his future performances.
