Cricket: Pakistan achieves the World Cup’s highest successful chase

The record for most centuries in a single World Cup game was also reset in Hyderabad on Tuesday

Pakistan chased down 345 runs in Hyderabad against Sri Lanka. In the history of the men’s ODI World Cup, it is currently the most successful chase. Ireland’s 328 against England in the 2011 competition in Bangalore was the previous record-holder. The duo of Abdullah Shafique and Mohammad Rizwan displayed tremendous talent and steely grit as they deftly navigated Sri Lanka’s bowling onslaught. Their amazing efforts enabled Pakistan to triumph decisively, winning the match with only four wickets remaining.

Highest ever Chase

Pakistan has scored more records in ODIs than they did on Tuesday (345), including more than 100. In Lahore in 2022, Pakistan’s highest run chase was 349 against Australia. The effort made today surpasses India’s 321 during the 2012 CB series in Hobart. As the largest chase by any side against Sri Lanka.

Unbeaten Against Sri Lanka

8-0 At the men’s ODI World Cup, Pakistan won all eight of their encounters with Sri Lanka to extend their winning streak. It has now surpassed India’s 7-0 run over Pakistan as the most dominant head-to-head record in the competition.


Kusal Mendis, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Abdullah Shafique, and Mohammad Rizwan were the four centurions present in Hyderabad on Tuesday. It is only the third time in all ODIs and the first time in a men’s World Cup ODI match. That four different hundreds have been scored. The 1998 One-Day International in Lahore between Australia and Pakistan was the first ODI to feature four hundreds. The 2013 ODI in Nagpur between India and Australia became the second. Mendis required 65 balls to reach his century. The sixth-fastest time at the men’s ODI World Cup and the fastest for Sri Lanka. The previous fastest century for Sri Lanka in this competition was scored by Kumar Sangakkara against England in 2015, needing only 70 balls.

Debutant Century

At the men’s ODI World Cup, Shafique became the first Pakistani player to achieve a century on his international debut. Mohsin Khan’s 82 against Sri Lanka in 1983 was Pakistan’s previous greatest World Cup debut score.


Rizwan and Shafique’s 176 partnership is Pakistan’s second-highest at the men’s ODI World Cup. Saeed Anwar and Wajahatullah Wasti set a record-high 194 runs for the first wicket against New Zealand in the 1999 semifinal. In his 12-match ODI career, Matheesha Pathirana has given up 91 runs via wides, including 18 against Pakistan in Hyderabad. Since his own debut in June of this year, they are by far the most wickets that any bowler has given up, with Mujeeb Ur Rahman (34) coming in second.
