Fazalhaq Farooqi, who had set the game up nicely for Afghanistan by picking two wickets in the 18th over, comes on to bowl the last over in the 13-run defence and concedes two sixes to Naseem Shah, the number 11. India and Afghanistan are both eliminated as a result, and Sri Lanka are set to meet Pakistan in the final. The unbeaten stand of 13 between Naseem and Mohammad Hasnain is the highest tenth wicket partnership involving a #10 and #11 in a successful run chase in T20Is. It was a crackerjack of a game, and people in the crowd have had their pennies worth.
Pakistan had one wicket in hand and needed 11 runs to win going into the final over against Afghanistan.
