Ahead of the Pakistan-Afghanistan Asia Cup Super 4 meeting in Sharjah on Wednesday, legendary pacesetter Wasim Akram came up with a witty response when host Mayanti Langer asked him a question about India. While Mayanti asked Wasim for his opinion on India’s double losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the legendary pacesetter relayed this question to the other expert on the panel, Sanjay Manjrekar. Akram said they had talked enough about India while ignoring Wednesday’s match between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
“Sanjay, this is all yours! Take it away. I think Rohit Sharma is probably sick himself, seeing himself on TV. There are two other teams playing today. We talked about India all day yesterday, but today is it’s Pakistan vs Afghanistan, so Sanjay, all yours!” Akram was heard by Star Sports during the pre-match show of the Afghanistan-Pakistan match.

Speaking of the match, Pakistan qualified for the Asia Cup final after beating Afghanistan by one wicket in a thrilling match at the Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium.
Chasing a goal of 130, Pakistan needed 11 runs from the last remaining, with tail-enders Naseem Shah and Mohammad Hasnain in the middle. While it looked like Afghanistan could defeat Pakistan, Naseem had other ideas. The pacer hit two sixes of Fazalhaq Farooqi’s first two balls, sending the Pakistani locker room into a frenzy.
Pakistan’s win meant that India and Afghanistan are out of the equation for Sunday’s final as they are winless from two games. With four points each, Pakistan and Sri Lanka qualified for the title fight
