Afghanistan clinched a three-wicket win over Pakistan in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 fixture in Bristol on Friday.

Ahead of their World Cup 2019 campaign, Afghanistan registered a stunning victory over Pakistan in a warm-up game that went all the way to the wire. In the practice match, teams can use all of 15 players.

Pakistan come into the match having been thumped 4-0 in their recent ODI series against tournament favourites England, and while it might have been a useful bedding-in period which could help them acclimatise to the host nation's conditions, their bowling performances in particular were not up to par.

However, out of the three ODIs played between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the Men in Green have won all of them. Afghanistan won the match by 3 wickets and two balls to spare.

Pakistan were bowled out for 262 after captain Sarfaraz Ahmed made a decision to bat first. That being said, with seven wins from their last 10 games in the 50-over format, the lowest ranked team in this World Cup will enter this game with plenty of confidence. Imam-ul-Haq was the third highest run-scorer for Pakistan as he scored 32 runs.

Only Shoaib Malik's 44 offered any other threat for Pakistan, who struggled to keep Afghanistan in check during the run chase.

Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Shehzad and Asghar Afghan will be crucial in the batting lineup, while the skipper will lead the bowling attack along with Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi.

Two overs later, Fakhar Zaman (19) was sent back to the pavilion by Mohammad Nabi.
