2 for 16, 6 wickets for 6 runs. Afghanistan was cornered by Pakistani bowlers. It seemed difficult to do a hundred then. But the team is Afghanistan, in whose blood is fearless cricket. Mohammad Nabi and Gulbadin Naib brought the team back from a difficult situation.
The Afghans put up an unbeaten partnership of 69 off 42 balls with a pair of 146 runs for the loss of six wickets. In other words, Pakistan needs 146 runs to win.
Afghan captain Mohammad Nabi decided to bat first after winning the toss in Dubai. The Pakistani bowlers held them down from the start. He took 2 wickets in 13 runs.
Hazratullah Zazai (0) was the victim of Imad Wasim in the second over of the innings. Shahin Shah Afridi picked up Mohammad Shahzad (7) in the next over.
However, the Afghan batsmen did not stop the game even after losing wickets. As a result, the middle order could not hold the helm. Asghar Afghan scored 10 runs off four balls with one six. Rahmanullah Gurbaj returned with 10 runs in one six.
After losing 4 wickets for 39 runs, Karim Janat and Najibullah Zadran wanted to play for a while. Even though the pace decreased, the flow of wickets did not decrease much.
