Watch: Asif Ali’s Sixes Blitz, T20 World Cup: Asif Ali helped Pakistan win their third consecutive game by hitting four sixes off bowler Karim Janat in the 19th over.
Asif Ali lived up to the hype by hitting four big sixes in the penultimate over of the game to lead Pakistan past Afghanistan in style at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday in a Super 12 match at the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan was in trouble as captain Babar Azam and experienced Shoaib Malik were both gone in quick succession. Asif Ali, on the other hand, picked up where he left off against. New Zealand, scoring the requisite 24 runs in the 19th over, bowled by pacer Karim Janat.
Watch: Asif Ali’s Sixes Blitz, Asif preferred to bat in the ‘V’ at first, then went a little squarer for his four sixes. Which he smashed to long-off, mid-wicket, right over the bowler’s head, and finally over the cover region.
Babar Azam, the Pakistan captain, anchored the Pakistan innings with a well-crafted half-century in 45 balls.
The Afghanistan spinners, led by Rashid Khan, Mohammad. Nabi, and Mujeeb ur Rahman, kept the scoring rate down in the middle overs.
Babar, Fakhar Zaman, and Shoaib, on the other hand. Made key cameos that helped Pakistan chase down the target of 148 runs.
