Pakistan vs Afghanistan: A series of three ODIs will be held between Pakistan and Afghanistan. In the first game of the series, Pakistan beat Afghanistan by a bang by 142 runs. Losing that game set a shameful record on behalf of Afghanistan. The Afghan batsmen had a heavy flop in the game. Because of this, the Afghan team suffered a defeat.
In the game, Pakistani captain Babar Azam won the toss and decided to bat first. Opener Imam-ul-Haq scored the most runs for the team. He contributed 61 runs. Babar couldn’t even open his account. At the same time, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman also failed to play big innings. Shadab Khan must have scored 39 runs at the end. With the help of these batsmen, Pakistan scored 201 runs.
Embarrassing record on behalf of Afghanistan
When the Afghan team started chasing the 202-carry goal, everyone assumed Afghanistan could easily win the game, but the Pakistani bowlers put on a brilliant performance. Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored the best 18 runs for Afghanistan. Four batsmen from the team failed even to open the account. The entire Afghan team started 59 races. With this, the Afghan team has become the team that has scored the lowest in ODI cricket against Pakistan. In 1986, the New Zealand team was safe in 64 games against Pakistan.
