8000 runs and 300 wickets

4 Number of Pakistan batsmen who've scored 8000 or more ODI runs - Shahid Afridi is the fourth, after Inzamam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf and Saeed Anwar. Overall, 27 batsmen have achieved this feat. Among these 27 batsmen, Afridi has the best strike rate (116.86), and the poorest average (23.58). He is only second to Sanath Jayasuriya now who've completed the double of 8000 runs and 300 wickets in ODIs.

Misbah on fire

Misbah-ul-Haq took 39 balls for his half-century, the second-fastest of his 41 fifties in ODIs. The only time he scored a faster 50 was off 36 balls, against Zimbabwe way back in January 2008 in Karachi.

Deja vu of the day

Nasir Jamshed's early dismissal - and its manner - probably shouldn't have been a surprise. Jamshed had scored only one run in his three previous ODI innings and had not reached 40 in his last 15. Once again, Jamshed fell early and in familiar fashion. In all three innings in this World Cup, he has been dismissed attempting to pull balls outside off stump.

Best Buddies

The partnership of 160 between Ahmed Shehzad and Harris Sohail, Pakistan's fourth-best in a World Cup game. The highest is 194, between Saeed Anwar and Wajahatullah Wasti, against New Zealand in the 1999 World Cup. It was also fourth 50-plus scores for Shehzad in his last nine ODI innings, including a century.

Shot of the day

This was not a match that UAE will look back on with any particular fondness. But there were moments that hinted at the natural talent contained within the squad and suggested better times ahead. One of those moments came when Shaiman Anwar, new to the crease, upper cut Sohail Khan for six over backward point. It was, by any standards, an outrageously fine stroke.
