So Pakistan prevail. The bowlers of Afghanistan failed to fire and the fact that Pakistan could take it easy towards the end meant that the score put up on the board wasn't enough.

This match will be of help to Pakistan in preparing for the bigger games against Sri Lanka.

Mohammad Hafeez is the man of the match. Thanks for joining us and it's a good night from all of us here
