Pakistan opener Imran Nazir revealed on Wednesday that he aims to stay long at the crease, after guiding his side to a crushing win over Bangladesh.

 

Nazir produced the tournament's fastest half-century as Pakistan stormed into the Super Eights of the ICC World Twenty20 with a crushing eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh on Tuesday.

 

Needing a win to advance to the next round, Pakistan rode on Nazir's 36-ball 72-run blistering knock and his record 124-run opening stand with skipper Mohammad Hafeez to chase the challenging 176-run target with eight balls to spare, in their final group league encounter.

 

Nazir reached his fifty in just 25 deliveries, one quicker than Chris Gayle's 26-ball effort against Australia.
