Pakistan lost to Afghanistan for the first time in international cricket
Afghanistan vs Pakistan: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) often tries to copy Indian cricket in many ways. In this episode, the PCB, adopting the formula of Team India against Afghanistan, decided to field its youth team, whose command was handed over to Shadab Khan. Recently, this has been seen in Indian cricket for a few years, but India’s bench strength has more than one promising cricketer like Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Umran Malik, Shivam Mavi. But this formula of Pakistan failed in the first test itself. In the first match of the three-match T20 series, Afghanistan thrashed Pakistan badly.
In the first T20 match played in Sharjah, Afghanistan beat Pakistan in such a way as if any associate nation’s team is in bad condition. This was the first international victory over Pakistan in the 11-year history of the Afghan team. Not only this, Pakistan made its fifth T20 International’s lowest score in this match. At the same time, it happened for the 9th time that the Pakistan team was able to score less than 100 in the prescribed 20 overs in T20 International. In this match, Pakistan’s team did not get all out and could score only 92 runs (4.6 run rate) for 9 wickets in 20 overs. This was his/her second slowest innings in terms of run rate in the history of T20 Internationals.
