The last World Test Championship match is now being played in England between India and Australia, featuring notable players from both countries. In addition, the T20 Vitality Blast event is taking place, with renowned players from all around the world taking part.

Every day, numerous entertaining matchups are contested in the Vitality Blast. A fantastic match between Middlesex and Sussex took place yesterday, June 8th.

Shadab Khan, a Pakistani player, had an explosive inning.

In this game, Pakistani player Shadab Khan had an amazing inning. At Lord’s, where Sussex and Middlesex were playing, Sussex captain and Indian-origin batsman Ravi Bopara elected to bat after winning the toss, a choice that benefited his team.

The first wicket fell for 25 runs in the fifth over, and Tom Alsop was out in the next over after scoring 32 runs. At 55 runs, Tom Clarke, who was batting brilliantly, was bowled by Ryan Higgins.

This was followed by a superb 91-run combination between Shadab Khan, Pakistan’s white-ball vice-captain, and Sussex captain Ravi Bopara. Shadab Khan hit 59 runs off 29 balls for a strike rate of 196.67.

Shadab Khan, in particular, scored 46 runs in just 9 balls, hitting fours and sixes. Ravi Bopara also batted as captain, scoring 38 runs off 26 balls, including two fours and two sixes. As a result, Sussex managed to score 181 runs.

Despite the captain’s unbroken 94 runs, Middlesex fell short by 4 runs

Middlesex didn’t get off to a good start in chasing the target of 182 runs, losing their first wicket on 10 runs to Joe Cracknell. This was followed by a stunning 85-run combination between Pieter Malan and captain Stephen Eskinazi, which gave Middlesex hope of a victorious chase.

However, as is frequently the case in cricket, the unexpected can occur. In this match, too, the Sussex captain took matters into his own hands, bowling out the dangerous Pieter Malan, who was looking menacing, and sending him back to the pavilion.

Middlesex needed 21 runs with 12 balls remaining to win. Captain Stephen Eskinazi and Jack Davis were both in fine form at the crease.

Nathan McAndrew claimed one wicket and allowed only nine runs in the 19th over. As a result, Middlesex needed 12 runs in the final over to secure victory. However, experienced spinner Tymal Mills kept the Middlesex batters from reaching the required run total.

Mills took one wicket and allowed only seven runs in the final over. As a result, Sussex overcame Middlesex by four runs and won the match.
