Team Pakistan to the finals of the Asia Cup
In a dramatic finish in Sharjah, No.10 batter Naseem Shah smashed two sixes off the first two balls of the final over to secure Pakistan’s Asia Cup victory over Afghanistan.
Afghanistan shocks Pakistan on the field
Afghanistan had taken three wickets in the first two overs of two of their three Asia Cup matches, three against Sri Lanka in the first game and one against Bangladesh in the second.
However, Pakistan Zindabad!
Pakistan defeated Afghanistan by one wicket in a tense Asia Cup Super 4 match on Wednesday, with Naseem hitting two superb sixes in the final over. Afghanistan dominated the match until the final over, when they reduced Pakistan to 118 for nine. Naseem, on the other hand, had other ideas, hitting Fazalhaq Farooqi for two consecutive sixes to eliminate both Afghanistan and India from contention for a final berth.
King Babar is proud of Naseem Shah
“To be honest, the dressing room was very tense. The team was walking in and out of the dressing room. Excellent with the way Naseem Shah finished it off. Sharjah is always low-scoring, and Mujeeb and Rashid Khan are one of the best bowlers,” Babar Azam said in the post-match presentation ceremony.
Furthermore, he said, “We just wanted to take the match deep. The way we started with the ball was excellent. In our batting, we didn’t execute our plans very well, but Naseem was outstanding.
“At the back of my mind, I have seen Naseem play like this earlier, and I had belief in him. This moment reminds me of Javed Miandad’s six. We would like to continue this momentum and not repeat our mistakes. Every day is a ber day, and we would like to take it day by day,” Babar added.
Twitter is the happiest!
After the exciting match and a miraculous win, Twitteratis rush to the site to express their excitement and love for Naseem Shah.
Someone did this and we can’t hold our laughter!
