Afghan skipper Fareed Sherzada after winning the toss opted to bat first. The decision proved to be a disastrous one as Afghan team were bundled out for 67 runs in 15 overs. Ashraf Arbab played some stylish strokes before he was out after scoring 20 runs. Jahanzaib also played well for his 12 runs but none of the other Afghan batsmen even managed to cross the double figures. Right arm off spinner Kashif Nawaz picked up 3 for 12 runs, while Shujaat Ali and skipper M Fayyaz chipped in with 2 wickets each conceding 13 and 17 runs, respectively.
Pakistan Handicapped team achieved the target in seven overs losing two wickets. Openers Junaid Khan and Adeel Khan provided a dream start to their team hitting 46 runs in 3.3 overs before Junaid was the first man to be clean bowled by Khushal Hamza after scoring 13 runs. Adeel played some lusty blows before he too got out at the hands of Ghulam Hazrat after scoring 32 runs in only 14 deliveries hitting 4 boundaries and two out sixes. Altaf and Saqib ensure Pakistan achieve the target without being separated in 7 overs.
This was also the first ever victory for Pakistan Handicapped cricket team in international matches, as they had lost the first ever international series against India. Pakistan Handicapped team looked a completely different outfit under the watchful eyes of newly-appointed head coach Irfan Bhatti and manager Ajmal Sabir.
