Bowling just the fourth over of the game, with the side defending a humungous total of 244, Abdullah Mazari, a left-arm orthodox bowler, making his first appearance in the tournament would have hoped to start well but the debutant was in for a shock.

Zazai, the 20-year-old southpaw took him apart hitting him for six sixes, scoring 37 runs from the first over which included a wide as well. Zazai brought up his fifty in just 12 balls, the joint-fastest in the history of the T20 cricket. He was eventually dismissed for a 17-ball 62. He has been in a fine form having already scored a century earlier against Nangarhar Leopards. He made it to the elite list of players to have hit six sixes in an over in the shortest format of the game.
