Matches between Pakistan and Afghanistan are always highly emotional games to watch. The spirits are continuously pumped, Afghanistan being weaker than Pakistan, willing to seal victory in every match; however, it never happens.
Pakistan’s bowling unit successfully restricted Afghanistan to 129. Although Pakistan’s batting line-up collapsed, Naseem Shah was on strike in the last over when he hit 2 consecutive sixes and helped his team towards a sensational victory.
This was the nerve-wracking match in the Asia cup 2022; Babar Azam said during the post-match ceremony, “the sixes by Shah reminded the time when Javed Miandad smashed a six against India in 1986 at Sharjah.” Ravi Shastri, who was hosting the ceremony, replied to Babar that He was there during the match and thanked him for reminding him.
Frame: Pakistan is through to the finals, which will take place on Sunday, 11-September-2022
