Afghanistan fought well. A brilliant display of bowling from our team, especially Shaheen Shah Afridi and Imad. Fakhar was just remarkable and the awesome finish from Asif Ali was indeed the cherry on top. All eyes set on the next one! ??? #WhyNotMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/u13FKuAKxP
In the post-match press conference, Babar Azam said, We started well with the ball and got a lot of wickets as per the plan. Maybe in the end we gave 10-15 runs more. With the bat, we could not take as much advantage of the powerplay as we wanted. Finally with Malik and Asif Ali we knew they could finish the game
Asif Ali also played the role of finisher in Pakistans victory. Asif played a stormy inning of 25 runs in seven balls, which included four sixes. Now Pakistan will face Namibia and Scotland in their last two matches.
