An incredible performance by Abdul Razzaq, blitzing 109 runs off 72 balls to steal victory from South Africa in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI: All rounder Abdul Razzaq hopes the breathtaking century that earned his team a thrilling one wicket win against South Africa will lift Pakistan cricket and silence the critics back home.
Razzaq’s knock, studded with 10 sixes and 7 Fours, helped Pakistan pull off a win with just one ball to spare and level the five match series at 1-1.
Pakistan cricket has been rocked by spot fixing allegations sparked during their recent tour of England.
Three key players Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) over various breaches of the players’ disciplinary code during that tour.
The suspensions came following revelations in British newspaper the News of the World, which claimed several Pakistan players took money to follow orders from a bookmaker during the Lord’s Test against England in August 2010.
The ICC code of conduct commissioner Sunday upheld the suspensions after hearing appeals from Salman and Amir. Asif had withdrawn his appeal.
On top of the controversies, Pakistan lost both T20 matches before losing the first day/night international in the ongoing series against South Africa.The 30 year old Razzaq, whose century was his first innings of over fifty in four years, was outspoken in the way that he had been used by selectors.Razzaq said : " Pakistan is on track for next year’s World Cup 2011, We are a good team and have a very good combination for the World Cup and we can do well in that mega event.
