FOUR! All over, PAKISTAN WIN BY 3 WICKETS! Malik has done it. Alam delivers it full and on middle, Shoaib gets across the stumps and whips it behind backward square leg for the winning runs. He also brings up his 42nd ODI fifty with that shot! He is a man for the crisis for Pakistan. Sarfraz in the dressing room screams in joy, Hasan is all pumped up. The batsmen hug each other in the middle. Some sad Afghanistan players in tears. Aftab Alam is down on his haunches, he is absolutely gutted and Malik is seen consoling him. Great gesture. Commiseration, Afghanistan. Congratulations, Pakistan. The crowd is going bonkers. Excellent scenes. Let me slip in a cliched line - Cricket is the real winner.

Summary

As India battles it out against Bangladesh for the Super 4 match in Dubai at the Asia Cup 2018, Afghanistan and Pakistan will play another interesting contest in Abu Dhabi. Afghanistan, who put up an amazing show against Bangladesh enter the contest with utmost confidence.

Asghar Afghan’s team won the game very convincingly by 136 runs and team Bangladesh collapsed like a pack of cards. Rashid Khan, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, Gulbadin Naib clinched a couple of wickets each. Aftab Alam, Mohammad Nabi and Rahmat Shah got one wicket each. Pakistan, on the other hand, drew sharp criticism from several cricketing stalwarts like Wasim Akram, for their haphazard performance against India would look to make a comeback with the game.

Pakistan lost to India by 8 wickets and looked out of the place. The only two big scorers in Pakistan were Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam. The team had a day to sort out their combinations. Let’s check out the squads of the team:
