We have seen Hasan Ali’s trademark ‘bomb explosion’ celebrations after claiming the wickets of the opponents. But the second ODI was a rather special one. Although New Zealand are leading the five-match ODI series by 2-0, Hasan notched up his maiden fifty in style. The celebrations began with fist thumping  and it ended with his typical ‘bomb explosion’ celebrations. Hasan reached fifty off 31 deliveries and his shots were all over the park. His fifty saw 4 fours and 4 sixes.

Apart from Hasan, Mohammad Hafeez and Shadab Khan also brought up their fifties. It was these knocks that took Pakistan to a commendable total of 246 for 9. The remaining players perished for single digits.
