Captains View

Mohammad Nabi

We will bat first. It looks dry on the top, could be good for batting first, look to put a decent total on the board and then defend it. We are playing the same team.

Babar Azam

The mood in the camp is good, we’re in great spirits. It’s a team game and I’m lucky to have a good set-up, can’t write off any team, they have good spinners. We’re also playing an unchanged team.

T20 World Cup 2021 Afghanistan vs Pakistan Highlights

Afghanistan Batting

Hazratullah Zazai and Mohammad Shahzad walk to the crease to open the batting attack while Shaheen Afridi opens the bowling attack.

Afghanistan openers struggle to face Pakistan’s aggressive bowling attack. Where the opening batsmen loses their wicket in back-to-back overs without scoring even 10 runs.

While Gurbaz and Asghar Afghan join hands and leads the Afghan batting unit. This duo too struggles and loses their wicket within the powerplay. At this stage, Afghanistan scored 49 runs for 4 wickets loss.

Karim Janat and Najibullah Zadran get under pressure to build the partnership to move Afghan towards a descent run target. But the duo failed and soon walks to the pavillion.

Nabi and Gulbadin join hands and added a 71 runs partnership and leads Afghanistan to score 147 runs for 6 wickets loss.

Pakistan Batting

The destructive duo Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam walks to the crease while Mujeeb opens the bowling attack.

Mujeeb in his second over dismissed Rizwan and draws the first blood for Pakistan. Fakhar Zaman on joining hands with Babar adds a much-needed 63 runs partnership and moves Pakistan to a comfortable zone before Nabi dismissing Fakhar Zaman.

Rashid Khan proves his worth by dismissing Mohammad Hafeez and Babar Azam in much crucial positions. Shoaib Malik too fails to help the team in much-needed time and walks to the pavilion after scoring 19 runs.

While Pakistan were in need of 24 runs from 12 balls, Asif Ali hits 4 sixes of the 19th over and leads Pakistan to beat Afghanistan by 5 wickets with an over remains to bowl.

Player of the Match

Asif Ali

I would like to congratulate the Pakistan team and all our fans. I was confident of finishing it off from this end and that’s what I told Shoaib Malik before he got out. I look at the situation of the match, and I target the bowlers accordingly.

I was talking to Shoaib when I walked in to bat and I told him that I was confident enough of getting 20-25 in one over against Karim Janat, which I did.
