42 runs off 13 balls. In the process he hit 4 huge sixes and 3 fours.

CRICKET-WC-2015-PAK-WISPakistan started to crumble from ball one. They lost their 4 top order batsmen for 1 run. Ultimately their struggle against Windies quicks ended on 160 runs. Umar Akmal was the highest run scorer in Pakistani innings. He scored 59 runs off 71 balls to add some respite. Shoaib Maqsood also scored a half century.
