WEB DESK: During the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in Chennai, on Monday, Afghanistan secured a convincing eight-wicket victory over Pakistan, leaving cricket fans disappointed.
In pursuit of a target of 283 runs, Afghanistan showcased remarkable batting prowess, led by the outstanding performances of Ibrahim Zadran (87), Rahmat Shah (77 not out), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (65), and skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi (48 not out). Their collective effort enabled Afghanistan to achieve victory with six balls to spare.
The defeat leaves both Afghanistan and Pakistan with identical records of two wins and three losses from their five group stage matches. Afghanistan had previously made waves by stunning defending champions England earlier in the tournament.
The disappointment among fans is palpable, with some questioning the Babar Azam-led side’s claim to a top-four position, while others express concerns about the Men In Green’s prospects for a comeback following this significant setback.
