Pakistan initially elected to bat first, however it turned out to be a terrible decision as they were dismissed for less than 100. With their accurate bowling and ordinary wickets, Afghanistan helped Pakistan stay under such a score. If the demand for the board had increased more suddenly, Pakistan would have made a match out of it. With the new ball, the Pakistani bowlers made a sincere attempt, hitting three times and creating tension for Afghanistan, but only briefly, as Afghanistan easily pursued down. Perhaps 15-20 more runs would have made things difficult for Afghanistan.
We have created history! Afghanistan unexpectedly defeated Pakistan in a cricket match. How quick were they! To win this match, all they needed was a calm mind and a stand. After first losing themselves, Mohammad Nabi and Najibullah Zadran regained composure and allowed the pressure to subside so they could pursue this score down without any issues.
