In the match against Leicestershire, the Pakistani opnerer batsman faced 268 balls and scored 219 runs with the help of 24 sixes. On the basis of his brilliant performance, Derbyshire took a 210-run lead over Leicestershire at the end of the second day’s play. After getting bundled out at 210 runs, Leicestershire came to bowl. Their bowlers had to do laborious work as Shan Masood and Wayne Madsen built a 221 runs partnership for the third wicket.
