Pakistan prevail in last-over finish

A score of 137 wouldn't have appeared a match-winning one at the halfway stage of the match, but Afghanistan's bowlers made Pakistan fight till the final ball

Scorecard summary
Afghanistan137/8(20 overs)
Pakistan138/4(19.5 overs)

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
