A better finish in the end by Afghanistan. They started off badly losing wickets at regular intervals, but useful cameos from Najibullah Zadran and Mirwais helped them reach a decent total.
Pakistan somehow manage to win this one by 6 wickets. They were made to work hard towards the end as Afghan bowlers stifled the run flow and even the experieced Pakistani batsmen couldn't put away the bad balls. Hafeez fighted it out with a gritty 42 to make sure Pakistan don't lose the way after the openers had laid a solid foundation. Afghan bowlers bowled well in patches, but were not able to handle the pressure in tense situations. Pakistan should sort their batting out ahead of the series against Sri Lanka, which will start in 3 days. Afghanistan were playing against a strong side and they should be proud about their performance.
Hafeezis the Man of the Match for his gritty innings of 42.
