In T20I cricket, Abdullah Shafique establishes a new world record for ducks.

The young batting unit faltered in the United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan lost again to Afghanistan in the second game of the three-match T20I series (UAE).

When the Rashid Khan-led team prevailed in a nail-biting finale at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Afghanistan won the T20I series against Pakistan for the first time in history.

In the meantime, Abdullah Shafique made T20I cricket history by becoming the first hitter to ever record four consecutive ducks. On the first ball, Fazalhaq Farooqi trapped him LBW.

Prior to recording two more ducks against Afghanistan in this series, the right-hander recorded two straight ducks against New Zealand in Auckland and Hamilton back in 2020.

Following his outstanding performance in the recently finished eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League, the 23-year-old batter returned to the national team (PSL).

The cricketer from Sialkot, who played for Lahore Qalandars, amassed 268 runs in 10 innings at an average of 26.80, including two half-centuries, and helped his team defend its championship.

Among the current crop of young cricketers, Abdullah Shafique is regarded as a very gifted hitter because he has made a name for himself as a red-ball specialist.
