Afghanistan beat Pakistan by 185 runs to claim Under-19 Asia Cup


Afghanistan recorded a historic cricket victory as the team clinched the Under-19 Asia Cup for the first time, reported International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday.

Afghanistan pulled off a 185-run victory against Pakistan at the Kinrara Academy Oval in Kuala Lumpur. The team posted 248 for 7. In response, Pakistan was bundled for just 63 in 22.1 overs.

Earlier on Friday, Afghanistan had overwhelmed Nepal by seven wickets in the semi-final of the ACC U-19 Asia Cup.

On Sunday, the early fall of wickets triggered panic among green shirts and the Afghanistan bowlers took full advantage of the situation. Due to the pressure, nine Pakistan batsmen failed to reach double-figures.
