Mohammad Shahzad led Rajputs to a 10-wicket victory in its T10 League opener with a sensational unbeaten knock of 74 off just 16 balls.

The first match of the 2018 competition saw Shahzad light up a wholly one-sided contest with Sindhis, smashing his way to a half-century from only 12 deliveries.

Shahzad was up against some esteemed bowlers - including Jofra Archer and Thisara Perera - but he made light work of each of them.

The Afghanistan star tallied six fours and eight maximums on his way to a stunning total, with Rajputs captain Brendon McCullum only required to contribute a still impressive 21 at the opposite end.
