Pakistan vs Afghanistan

Great start by Afghanistan to their WC campaign

In a very interesting & enthralling encounter last night, Afghanistan found their first ever victory against Pakistan in the 50-over format. 

Though it was just a warm-up game for both the teams but Afghanistan proved to everyone that they're here to stay in this mega event and no other team should take them lightly in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. 

Pakistan scored 262 and were all-out before they could complete their 50 overs. Babar Azam (112) once again scored a magnificent hundred but it went in vain as the men in green were clearly 20-25 runs short. 

Afghanistan reached their target of 263 in the last over with Hashmatullah Shahidi scoring 74* and finishing the match for his team. 

Hazratullah Zazai also scored 49 and gave Afghanistan the start they needed at the top. Pakistan will have to work extremely hard on their bowling. The green shirts will face Bangladesh in their next warm-up game tomorrow.
