Pakistan Set Target of 283 Runs Against Afghanistan

In the 22nd match of the ICC World Cup 2023, Pakistan took on Afghanistan at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, India. Pakistan, after winning the toss, decided to bat first. The opening partnership between Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique started solidly but saw Imam-ul-Haq’s dismissal at 56 runs, courtesy of Azmatullah Omarzai’s effort.

The key players for Pakistan were their captain, Babar Azam, and Saud Shakeel. At the time of this report, Babar Azam was at the crease with 43 runs to his name, and Saud Shakeel had amassed 12 runs. The team had reached a score of 146 runs for the loss of three wickets in the 32nd over. Pakistan set target of 283 for Afghanistan and loss 7 wickets.

This ongoing match carries significance for both teams, as they seek to secure a crucial victory in the ICC World Cup 2023, and the outcome will play a role in shaping their journey in the tournament.
