MALAYSIA: Afghanistan U19 has thumped Pakistan U19 to their worst ever defeat in youth cricket to claim the U19 Youth Asia Cup.
Pakistan elected to field first, a decision that proved costly for them as Afghan openers started belligerently. Mohammad Musa finally broke through by claiming the wickets of the inform well set Ibrahim Zadran and Rahman Gul.
However, the Afghan wicket keeper and a fiercely talented batsman Ikram Faizi led the Afghan innings with a measured knock. The importance of his innings was augmented by the fact that all the other batsmen could only make a mere 47 runs during their stay at the wicket with Faizi.
