Afghanistan cricket team secures victory over Pakistan in 50-over match

CHENNAI: Afghanistan’s top order fired to secure a memorable eight-wicket victory against 1992 champions Pakistan in the 50-over World Cup in Chennai on Monday (Oct 23).

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and opener Abdullah Shafique smashed half-centuries and the team plundered 91 runs from the final 10 overs to post 282-7 on a turning track at the MAChidambaram Stadium.

However, Afghanistan’s Ibrahim Zadran (87) and Rahmanullah Gurbaz (65) combined in a breakneck opening stand of 130 to give their side the perfect start.

Rahmat Shah (77) then joined skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi (48) in an unbroken 96-run stand to secure Afghanistan’s second victory of the tournament, which was also their first ODI win against Pakistan.
