Sikandar Raza surpasses Virat Kohli and sits on top!!


Zimbabwe’s best player Sikandar Raza contributed with the bat and ball. 

In the ICC T20 World Cup matchup against Pakistan, he displayed his skill with the ball. Raza got three wickets as the Men in Green were coasting to victory in Perth, contributing to their decisive victory by one run.

The spinner dismissed leading scorer Shan Masood (44), Shadab Khan (17), and Haider Ali while defending just 130. (0).

It was Sikandar's seventh Man of the Match award in 2022. Virat Kohli and Dinesh Nakrani, who each received six awards, were eclipsed by the veteran.
