Babar Azam’s Pakistan showed no mercy to Afghanistan in their 2022 Asia Cup Super 4 clash on Wednesday (September 7), as they won the match by 1 wicket in a nail-biting match-up between the two sides. With the win, Pakistan fulfilled all hopes for both Rohit Sharma’s Team India and Afghanistan to reach the final. The Men in Blue disappointed in their do-or-die match-up against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, as the Lankan Lions led by Dasun Shanaka shook off Men in Blue’s bowling attack, chasing their 174 goal with ease, courtesy of two brilliant half centuries by Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis.
