Bristol: Pakistan were humiliated by Afghanistan in their first warmup match before the ICC World Cup 2019 here on Friday. The Babes of cricket were never in trouble to beat an experienced team.
Afghanistan, who are participating in the World Cup only for the second time, first bowled out Pakistan for 262 and then completed the chase with just two balls remaining.
Hashmatullah Shahidi, the left-handed top-order batsman, steered Afghanistan to a thrilling three-wicket victory with a brilliant knock of 74 not out. Muhammad Nabi also contributed for the victory.
From Pakistan it was only Babar Azam who paid his responsibilities, but his century was not enough to make the total near 300 which could have been enough to beat Afghanistan.
