Chasing a target of 132, Afghanistan lost Usman Ghani early to Zaman Khan. But Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran added a slow but steady 56-run partnership to take the game away from Pakistan. In the end, it was Naseem Shah’s 19th over that blew way Pakistan’s chances. With Najibullah and Mohd Nabi hitting two sixes off Naseem in the 19th over, they amassed 17 runs from that over.
In the end, Zaman Khan had to defend 5 runs off the last over. Although he impressed with the ball, he could not do the impossible. Naijibullah struck Zaman for a 4 on the penultimate delivery to lead Afghanistan to a famous victory.
Earlier, Imad Wasim slammed an unbeaten 64 off 57 balls to help Pakistan post 130 in the second T20I on Sunday, 26th March. Afghanistan are eyeing a historic series win against Pakistan. They already made history when they defeated Pakistan for the first time across formats by six wickets in the opening T20I.
At the start of the innings, Afghan pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi picked up two wickets in the very first over as Pakistan find themselves in trouble. The Afghan bowers continued to dominate against the Pakistan batters. However Imad Wsim played a vital knock slamming his first T20I half-century to take his team to a decent total.
