CWC15 LIVE - Openers Push Pakistan Towards Quarterfinals

#Pakistan vs #Ireland
15th Mar 2015

Pak openers #AhmedShehzad and #SarfarazAhmed have partially snuffed out Irish bowling challenge in their chase of 237.

Both batsmen started slowly but once they had their eyes in, they started dominating the bowling. 
Shehzad, who's been criticized for a lot of dot balls early in his innings putting pressure on others, has been very good so far and upped the ante ahead of Sarfaraz.

He has reached his 50 and now needs to go on to score a century (the first for Pakistan in this world cup). Just goes to show why they aren't performing in the batting dept. Their opening stands haven't been good at all. Thats why, this is so encouraging to see.

Sarfaraz meanwhile has completed his fifty too.
He's curtailed his aggressive instinct to steady down and score responsibly.

Pakistan: 115 for No loss (21 overs)
Shehzad - 58*
Sarfaraz - 53*
