Twitter goes berserk as Afghanistan thump Pakistan to clinch historic T20I collection win


Afghanistan emerged victorious within the second T20 worldwide towards Pakistan, taking an unassailable 2-0 lead within the three-game collection at Sharjah.

Within the closing overs, Afghanistan confronted some nerve-wracking moments as they wanted 30 runs from the final three overs and 22 runs from the final two. Nevertheless, Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi performed a big function in hitting a six every off tempo bowler Naseem Shah within the penultimate over to scale back the goal to 5 runs. Ultimately, Zadran scored the successful boundary off Zaman Khan’s final over, with Afghanistan chasing down the 131-run goal with one ball to spare.

Pakistan had set a goal of 130-6 in 20 overs, constructed round a gradual 57-ball 64 not out by all-rounder Imad Wasim – his maiden T20I half-century. Imad led Pakistan’s restoration and added 67 runs for the sixth wicket with skipper Shadab Khan, who scored 32 off 25 balls. Nevertheless, Pakistan had a disastrous begin with left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi claiming Saim Ayub and Abdullah Shafique, each for nought, within the first over of the innings. Farooqi completed with 2-19 in his 4 overs. Shafique, who made his debut in November 2020, has been dismissed for nought on 4 successive events in 5 T20Is.

Afghanistan’s victory was their first bilateral T20I collection towards any of the highest six groups, which embody India, England, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Beforehand, that they had received a T20I collection towards the West Indies, Bangladesh and 5 in 5 towards Zimbabwe.
