Afghanistan were very close to victory against Pakistan but Asif Ali’s sensational knock took the game away from them. He slammed four sixes in the 19th over to finish the match in Pakistan’s favour. However, Afghanistan were lauded for their fighting spirit in the ongoing T20 World Cup. After defeating Scotland, they once again troubled the Men in Green.
Former Aussie spinner Brad Hogg is backing the Nabi-led team to defeat one of the top teams in the competition. Afghanistan still have a match with New Zealand, India and Namibia and the way they are playing, Afghanistan could upset the Men in Blue or the Kiwis on the turning pitches of the UAE.
“Afghanistan are going to upset one of the big teams this tournament. They held their own last night,” he wrote.

Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan and a few others are top players of the team and their experience will be vital in the upcoming games of the world event.
