The batsmen of the national team could not even score 100 runs, Pakistan could only score 92 runs for 9 wickets in the allotted 20 overs.
Very shameful batting by Pakistani batsmen in the first match of the historic series against Afghanistan. According to the details, the field was decorated in Sharjah for the first official international cricket series between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Batting first in the historic match, the batsmen of the national team could not even score 100 runs.
Pakistan could only score 92 runs for 9 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Imad Wasim scored 18 runs for Pakistan. Earlier, national team captain Shadab Khan won the toss of the first T20 match of the historic series and decided to bat first. Saeem Ayub, Tayyab Tahir, and Ehsanullah, Zaman Khan will debut for Pakistan. While other players include Shadab Khan, Abdullah Shafiq, Mohammad Haris, Azam Khan, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, and Naseem Shah.
Eight players have been included in the 15-man squad for the T20 series after their impressive performances in the domestic circuit and the recently concluded Pakistan Super League Season 8. This series will provide an opportunity for these players to maintain their form in international cricket. It should be noted here that teams from Pakistan and Afghanistan have faced each other during various tournaments, but the two teams have never faced each other in an official full series.
The first official series between Pakistan and Afghanistan was supposed to be played last year, but the series was postponed due to the situation in Afghanistan. The series between the two teams was supposed to consist of one-day matches, but a few months ago it was decided to conduct the series in the T20 format.
