At one point Pakistan needed 24 runs in 2 overs to win the match and there was no senior batsman along with Asif Ali. In such a situation, it seemed that maybe Afghanistan might dominate Pakistan but Asif Ali’s intentions were different, he made Afghanistan’s Armaan in tears by hitting four sixes in the 19th over bowled by Karim Janat.
From the way Asif Ali has batted in this T20 World Cup, it is visible that Pakistan has got a very big finisher. Asif Ali has emerged as the strength of Pakistan, in such a situation, there are going to be a lot of difficulties for the opposing teams in the upcoming matches.
Talking about Pakistan’s batting in this match, apart from Asif Ali, captain Babar Azam also scored a brilliant half-century. At the same time, senior player Shoaib Malik also contributed 19 runs in 15 balls. With this win, Pakistan has taken a step further towards the semi-finals.
