ICC ODI World Cup 2023: Pakistan vs Afghanistan Stats Review – Check out records broken in this game

Afghanistan defeated Pakistan by 8 wickets with the help of stunning 130-run opening partnership from Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran, and alongside them Rahmat Shah and skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi also played a brilliant role to chase down 283 runs at a tough venue like Chepauk. Pakistan bowlers lacked the much needed spark and ended up being a huge disappointment as they managed to pick only two wickets in total.

Pakistan initially winning the toss opted to bat first and posted 282/7 on board with the help of fifties from Abdullah Shafique (58) and Babar Azam (74) at the top while quick-fire knocks from Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed also played a pivotal role in their innings. Noor Ahmad was star bowler for Afghanistan as he ended up picking three wickets with the ball, while Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi ended up being very economical.
