Dawlat Zadran's twin 6’s in the latest over aided Afghanistan seal their first win in the Asia Cup T20 runners-up
Afghanistan reinvigorated their desires of fitting the bill for the fundamental round of the Asia Cup T20 with an exciting three-wicket win over Oman in Fatullah on Saturday. The superstar was Dawlat Zadran, who clubbed two back to back sixes in the last over rocked the bowling alley by left-arm spinner Ajay Lalcheta as Afghanistan pursued down 166 with three balls to save.
Oman, looking for a rehash of their execution over Hong Kong, selected to bat and were fueled by the opening join of Zeeshan Maqsood (52) and Jatinder Singh (23). Adnan Ilyas, the No. 3 batsman, based on the firm base to score an ambitious 27-ball 54 including three fours and four sixes. Be that as it may, his release in the seventeenth over turned out to be the contrast between where Oman in the end completed and where they would have gotten a kick out of the chance to wrap up. Gulbadin Naib, the medium-pacer, was the most temperate, picking two wickets and surrendering only 24 keeps running off his full portion.
For the second progressive night, Mohammad Shahzad fell inside the second over as Afghanistan slipped comfortable begin of their pursuit. That Afghanistan got into a position from where they could pursue down the objective was to a great extent because of Noor Ali Zadran, whose snappy flame begin permitted the center request batsmen to settle in. Noor Ali's second-wicket stand of 54 off only 4.4 overs with Asghar Stanikzai, the commander, helped them keep away from the asking rate.
Be that as it may, the rejections of Stanikzai and Karim Sadiq, the top-scorer in their misfortune to United Arab Emirates on Friday, tossed a spanner in their works cordiality Mehran Khan as Afghanistan slipped to 60 for 3. The medium-pacer included the scalp of Mohammad Nabi to his kitty not long after to leave Afghanistan flimsy even before they had wiped out a large portion of the objective.
Najibullah Zadran start repairing the innings, conjuring a 21-ball 23. In doing as such, he guaranteed a lower-request breakdown was turned away, and all the more critically, brought the contrast in the middle of runs and balls to only three going into the last four overs. Be that as it may, there seemed, by all accounts, to be another turn as Bilal Khan caught Najibullah and Noor Ali lbw inside of three conveyances in the seventeenth over.
With 21 required off the last two overs, Samiullah Shenwari, who was let well enough alone for their competition opener, hit two progressive fours to facilitate the weight, taking the diversion into the last over with 10 required. In the wake of having almost taken them home, Shenwari holed out to long-on with 5 balls to production. The performance was agreed for one of Lalcheta or Dawlat to be a legend. On the night, it was Dawlat's ice-cool veins that won in a strained conflict.
