Yesterday it was Pakistan one on one against Afghanistan in the group stages of the T20 World Cup. This was one of the most anticipated matches in the tournament mainly because of the crisis happening in both countries, especially in Afghanistan.
In yet another match Pakistan came out victorious and secured their spot in the next round. In what we witnessed an amazing match, the real game-changer was Pakistani middle-order batsman Asif Ali.
An insane hitting from Asif secured their victory hitting 4 sixes from 6 balls.
Earlier in the game, Afghanistan scored 147/6 in the first innings after winning the toss. Afghan batsman trembled at first in front of Shahin Shah Afridi and gang. Back-to-back wickets from Pakistani bowlers pulled Afghani batsmen into pressure. But they were able to overcome that and put on a decent score on board.
Just as we saw in previous matches, the Pak skipper Babar Azam was in the front end anchoring his team to a safe spot scoring another illustrious half-century. Babar is proving again and again that his name should be written among the legendary players who captained the Pakistan team, like Inzamam ul Haq, Wasim Akram just to name a few.
Then came the star of the match, Asif Ali. Depicting a monstrous inning with a flurry of back-to-back sixes. This team is showing the resemblances of the old legendary Pakistani cricketers. They are proving again and again that they are a force to be reckoned with.
They have many things to prove and many mouths to be shut. They don’t slow down with anything other than the T20 Cup.
Let’s wait and see what will happen.
