Thus, Hafeez became the third cricketer to score 99 not out in the shortest format. Before him, Luke Wright and David Malan were also unbeaten on the same score. This is the second highest score of any Pakistani player in this style. Ahmed Shehzad is at the top of the national top scorer list with 111 runs.
Ahmed is also at the third position with 98 runs not out. He played this innings against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe while the fourth-ranked Babar Azam scored 97 not out in the match against the West Indies.

He is the first full member player to score fifty in this style since celebrating his 40th birthday. Before him, two players from Malta and Luxembourg have done this feat.
