On Tuesday, Pakistan got Afghanistan’s players out for a very low score of 59 runs. This helped Pakistan win the first One-Day International (ODI) match by a big margin of 142 runs.

With this win, the Pakistani team is now leading 1-0 in the three-match ODI series happening in Sri Lanka. The matches are being played there because Afghanistan can’t have cricket games in their own country due to safety worries.

A player named Haris Rauf did well by taking five wickets, which is called a “five-wicket haul.” Pakistan had set a target of 202 runs for Afghanistan to chase, but Afghanistan’s team could only score 59 runs before being all out. This happened in 19.2 overs of playtime.

Unfortunately for Afghanistan, this is the second-lowest score they’ve ever had in One-Day International matches.

Haris Rauf got his first achievement of taking five wickets in a single match while representing Pakistan. He managed to get 5 players out while giving away only 18 runs in 6.2 overs.

Shaheen also did well by taking two wickets in two balls in his second over, which gave Pakistan a good start in defending against Afghanistan’s batting.

Naseem Shah and Shadab Khan each took one wicket for Pakistan.

Afghanistan Bowlers

Afghanistan’s top scorer was Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who made 18 runs.

Before this, Imam-ul-Haq played a strong innings and Shadab Khan also did some great things. To help Pakistan set a target of 202 runs for Afghanistan in the first One-Day International match happening in Hambantota.

Afghanistan’s bowlers did well on a spinning cricket pitch, causing problems for Pakistan’s top batsmen. Fazalhaq Farooqi took out Fakhar Zaman in his very first over, putting Pakistan in a difficult position right away.

Even though Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain and the top-ranked ODI batter, came to bat next, he got out to Mujeeb ur Rehman’s spin in the very next over.

Mohammad Rizwan and Imam managed to stay on the field for a short while, but they only added 33 runs together. Then, Mujeeb was the bowler who got Mohammad Rizwan out for 21 runs, through an LBW decision that seemed a bit uncertain and raised questions on social media.

Iftikhar Ahmed Batting

Iftikhar Ahmed, who usually finishes matches for the team, had a different role this time to steady the score. He did this well along with Imam, who also completed his 17th ODI half-century. Both of them scored 50 runs from 69 balls, giving Pakistan some relief.

Then, Iftikhar got out after making 30 runs. This was when Rashid Khan came and put pressure on Iftikhar, and he was dismissed by Mohammad Nabi in the 27th over.

Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi each took two wickets, contributing to Afghanistan’s bowling efforts.

Imam and Shadab worked together for the third time in the game, adding 40 runs this time. But Imam’s control slipped when facing Nabi, resulting in a catch at mid-on taken by Rashid. Imam, who had survived two dropped catches before, scored 61 runs from 94 balls.

Shadab Khan found a strong partner in tailender Naseem Shah, who caused trouble for Afghanistan in last year’s T20 Asia Cup. Naseem surprised everyone by hitting two consecutive sixes on the last two game-deciding deliveries from Fazalhaq Farooqui, leading Pakistan to an incredible victory.

Naseem and Shadab worked together to score 34 runs from 47 balls before Shadab ran out.

Rahmat Shah took the final wicket of Haris Rauf, marking the first time Afghanistan managed to get Pakistan’s players out in One-Day Internationals.

In the beginning, Pakistan won the toss and chose to make Afghanistan bowl first.
