Hasan Ali Enters Record Books with a Blistering 59 Against South Africa

Pakistani pacer Hasan Ali has registered his name in the record books for his fighting innings of 59 in the second match against South Africa.

The pacer now has the third highest score by a number 10 batsman. The list is topped by West Indian bowler Ravi Rampaul who scored 86*against India in 2011 followed by another Pakistani, Mohammad Amir (73* against New Zealand).

Hasan Ali has been known for his fast bowling prowess, however, he has proved himself to be a handy lower-order batsman on a few occasions.

His skills were on display against South Africa, where he smashed a very important 59 off just 45 balls to give his team some hope of defending the total.

The pacer now has two ODI fifties to his name, one each against South Africa and New Zealand.

Hasan Ali, along with captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, added 90, which is another national record for the 9th wicket and better than the previous record of 73 by Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Sami in 2007 against South Africa at Centurion.
