MS Dhoni is known for his world-class wicket keeping and is also known as the best finisher in cricket. Many might not remember that Dhoni had also once bowled an over against West Indies and took a wicket too.
In a recent series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz tried to do the same but failed. The incident happened in 48th over of Zimbabwe's innings when Sarfraz took off his wicket-keeping gloves and decided to try his hand at bowling. Sarfraz had asked Fakhar Zaman to don the wicket-keeping gloves for two overs.
Sarfraz bowled his first over of his career brilliantly, conceding just 6 runs. He came back in the last over again. Bowling the last over of the series against Zimbabwe, Sarfraz was whacked for a huge six by Zimbabwe's Peter Moor over the mid-wicket region.
Former India captain Dhoni has one international wicket to his name. He had dismissed West Indies' Travis Dowlin during the ICC Champions Trophy match in 2009 in Johannesburg.
Pakistan had a great series all thanks to players like Fakhar Zaman. Fakhar Zaman, who was out on 60 in the first match of the series, went unbeaten in the last three one-day internationals after scoring 117 not out, 43 not out and 210 not out.
With his 85 runs in this match, Zaman amassed 455 runs between two dismissals, surpassing the previous record held by former Pakistan great Mohammad Yousuf, who had scored 405 runs between two dismissals in 2002.
"It was a great team effort to win 5-0 against Zimbabwe," said Sarfraz. "Everyone wanted to bat...but at the same time it's really good to see young players performing like this, like Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq have been doing, which is good for the team."
