The Pakistan pacer, playing for Barbados Tridents, gave away just one run in his quota of four overs, besides picking two wickets. And what was the highlight about his spell was that the tall fast bowler bowled 23 dot balls out of 24. Apparently, his spell included three maidens. It surely will go down as one of the most impressive bowling spells in T20 cricket. CPL 2018 Points Table.

Truly honored & humbled to make the world record for the most economical four over bowling figures in the history of T20 cricket: 4-3-1-2. Thanks @CPL & @BIMTridents. Also I can't say it enough but Caribbean people are pure love. 🙌🙏🏽 #SayaCorporation @TalhaAisham pic.twitter.com/ot0zdEKMKC
