Pakistan was chasing 130 runs but didn’t have the best start since Babr Azam lost his wicket in the first over to Fazalhaq Farooqi. Farooqi also dismissed Mohammad Nawaz and Khushdil Shah in the 18th over while giving just three runs. Fareed picked the essential wicket of Asif Ali but Pakistan reached 87/3 to 118/9.

Pakistan needed 11 runs in the final over, when Naseem Shah hit two consecutive sixes in the first two balls to seal the victory.

The result meant that India and Afghanistan are out of the Asia Cup race for this edition. With four points, the Men in Green and Sri Lanka will be facing each other for the title clash held on September 11.

This was India’s first defeat in the Asia Cup since 2014. The team won the inaugural season under MS Dhoni’s captaincy in 2016 in Bangladesh. Later in 2018,under Rohit Sharma’s leadership, the men in Blue lifted the Cup winning every match of the edition.
