Central Punjab’s Abdullah Shafiq scored his third century in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season.

As per the details, the 23-year-old right-handed opener scored his third century in the four-day match against Northern at the LCCA ground today.

Abdullah Shafiq entered the list as the highest run scorer in the eighth round.

At the end of the game, Central Punjab scored 302 runs for 5 wickets in 82 overs.

Abdullah’s innings included 20 fours and three sixes, scoring 155 runs off 220 balls.

In the match, Musa Khan got the better of opener Abid Ali and one-drop Mohammad Saad to take Central Punjab to 34 for two.

Soon after Tayyub Tahir, who has been in good form this season, was replaced by Noman Ali, Central Punjab were in trouble after falling by three wickets for 50 runs.

But then Abdullah took control of the batting. He added a crucial 92 with Qasim Akram, who scored 38 off 97 balls before being lbw by Mubasher Khan for the fourth wicket.

The highlight of Central Punjab’s innings was a 145-run rear-guard partnership between Abdullah and Fahim Ashraf that gave them a firm grip on the match.

The pair ended when Abdullah was caught out by Amir Jamal.

Notably, Abdullah Shafiq has now scored 791 runs in 11 innings at an average of 79.10, which is the best performance in the longer format.

Abdullah Shafiq’s excellent form also bodes well for Pakistan, who will host England and New Zealand for three and two Tests respectively this winter.

Abdullah has already scored 736 runs at a brilliant average of 67 in a short career of seven Tests, including two centuries and five fifties.
