which was his first T20I half-century. This was Afghanistan’s first bilateral T20I series against any of the top six teams, with previous victories against the West Indies, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe. While Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran set the platform with a 56-run second-wicket partnership,
Najibullah and Nabi’s unbeaten innings of 23 and 14 respectively helped Afghanistan achieve victory after needing to score 46 off the last 30 balls. Pakistan’s captain Shadab Khan expressed his team’s aim of checking out talented young players and backing them for the future.

Pakistan’s recovery from a disastrous start was led by Imad, who hit two sixes and three boundaries to rescue his team from 63-5 after winning the toss and choosing to bat first. Imad and Shadab contributed 67 runs for the sixth wicket,
helping Pakistan reach a total of 130-6. Left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi was instrumental in Pakistan’s early collapse, claiming the wickets of Saim Ayub and Abdullah Shafique for nought in the first over. Farooqi finished with figures of 2-19 in four overs.
Mohammad Haris contributed 15 runs, including six and two boundaries, while Tayyab Tahir scored 13 off 23 balls. Azam Khan, known for his power hitting, fell for just one run after being dismissed for a duck in the previous game. Shadab,
who is leading the team in the absence of Babar Azam, hit three boundaries in his 25-ball innings, while Imad’s previous best score of 47 came against Sri Lanka in 2019
