Dhaka Dynamites' Hazratullah Zazai goes big during their BPL match against Rajshahi Kings in Mirpur Saturday Dhaka Tribune/Md Manik

Hazratullah Zazai is being considered as one of the promising players in T20 cricket after smashing six sixers in an over in the Afghanistan league a few months ago

Afghan opener Hazratullah Zazai made an explosive start in his first match as he smashed seven sixes and four fours in his 41-ball 78 for Dhaka Dynamites against Rajshahi Kings Saturday. 

The left-hander registered his maiden BPL fifty off 22 balls. 

Zazai formed a 116-run partnership with Sunil Narine, which built a solid platform for Dhaka to post a challenging a total of 189 in their 20 overs. 

Zazai was aggressive from the very beginning and took charge against the Rajshahi attack with confident strokes all over the park. 

Zazai is being considered as one of the promising players in T20 cricket after smashing six sixers in an over in the Afghanistan league a few months ago.

That reputation earned him a contract for Dhaka in BPL 6, and he has started the campaign brilliantly.
