Afghanistan's wicketkeeper-batsman breaks Sachin Tendulkar's 27-year-old record

It was a big disappointment for Afghanistan as they failed to chase 311 runs against the West Indies at Headingley on Thursday. Recording a loss of 23 runs, Afghanistan ended its campaign with this. At the same time, 18-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Ikram Ali Khalil broke Sachin Tendulkar's long record at the World Cup on Thursday. Ikram played 86 innings, but his efforts at Leeds were in vain.

In the second over, captain Gulbadin was out after Naib's fast bowling. The young player handled the situation with utmost care and measured the aggression, as he teamed up with Rahmat Shah to put the scoreboard on 44 at the end of the first powerplay. After a rush of boundary and single runs, the duo scored 96 runs in the next 16 overs. Ikram became the third youth to make  a half-century of the World Cup, before him record was held by Sachin.

Ikram's knock made him the highest scoring youth in the World Cup as he surpassed Tendulkar's 84 score, which he recorded against New Zealand in 1992.
