In reply, Afghanistan got off to a solid start with their openers Hazratullah Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz putting on 44 runs for the first wicket. However, they lost a few quick wickets in the middle overs, and the match looked to be slipping away from them. But then, their captain Asghar Afghan played a captain's knock, scoring a crucial 50 off just 34 balls, and along with Mohammad Nabi, took the team to victory with just 2 balls to spare.
This victory is a huge achievement for Afghanistan, and it shows that they have the potential to compete with the best teams in the world. It will also give them a lot of confidence going forward, especially in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
However, Pakistan will be disappointed with their performance. They were in a good position to win the match, but they let it slip away due to some poor bowling in the death overs. They will need to regroup quickly and come back stronger in the next match.
So, the 2nd T20I between Afghanistan and Pakistan was a thrilling encounter, with Afghanistan clinching a historic win. This victory will go down in the history books and will be remembered for a long time. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Afghanistan cricket team and shows that they are a force to be reckoned with in the world of cricket.
