Openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan (79 not out off 50 balls) struck contrasting fifties as Pakistan posted a challenging 189/2 in 20 overs against Namibia in a Group 2 match in the Super 12 stage of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup here on Tuesday.

Skipper Babar Azam completed his third successive half-century as he blasted 70 off 49 deliveries while Rizwan carried his bat through, blasting four boundaries and a six off the final over by JJ Smit as Pakistan tested their batting order against a weak side after chasing targets in their three wins so far.
