Pak aim to continue on winning march against Afghanistan

Babar terms his knock ‘best’ against Kiwis

Babar terms his knock ‘best’ against Kiwis

Pakistan's Babar Azam said his match-winning century against New Zealand was the best of his career as he guided the Asian side to a six-wicket win on Wednesday to keep their World Cup semi-final hopes alive.

Sohail warned that Pakistan could not take Afghanistan lightly in Saturday s match at Headingley, even though the Afghans have lost all seven of their matches so far.

The sequence of results have been the same and accordingly, the Pakistan fans are hoping for Sarfaraz Ahmed and his men to lift the trophy in the end. Speaking to a Pakistan cricket website, Azhar Ali completely trusts skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed to guide the team to a third ICC event win.

"Abusing players is sad because a team needs all support the most when it is not doing well", he said.

Afghanistan have gone close in a few of their matches but have failed to make a mark on the 2019 World Cup and are in danger of being eliminated without a point to their name. But they've played some excellent cricket in the last couple of games. However, he is now part of only the Test team setup.

It was a great innings in hard conditions, but even more so because it came when Pakistan really needed it.

United said Flight 2098 heading from LaGuardia Airport experienced problems upon takeoff just before 8 a.m. All passengers were taken to a terminal where alternate arrangements were being made.

"I took the correct decision because I was facing an injury problem plus after the retirements of Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq I wanted to focus completely on test matches", he said. Moreover, with England losing a couple of games, it has thrown the tournament wide open and it has increased Pakistan's chances significantly.

During the course of his innings, Babar became the second-fastest to reach 3,000 one-day worldwide runs in front of thousands of fanatical Pakistan fans.

Shadab Khan coming back into the team seems to have helped them strike a balance and then Haris' form has pushed them over the top.

Their last win against the Black Caps would have bolstered their confidence immensely, considering the kind of performance they came out with against the Kiwis who were one of the two unbeaten sides in the tournament till then.

Zadran and Mohammed Nabi then stitched together a crucial 42-run partnership for the sixth wicket before Riaz got Nabi's back and Zadran dragged a Afridi delivery on to his stumps.
