After Naseem Shah scored six consecutive victories against Afghanistan in the 2022 Asia Cup, Babar Azam was reminded of Javed Miandad. Ravi Shastri’s retort included gold
Afghanistan vs. Pakistan, Asia Cup 2022: After Pakistan’s victory, captain Babar Azam compared Naseem Shah’s game-winning six to Javed Miandad’s six against Chetan Sharma in the 1986 Austral-Asia Cup, which Pakistan used to win the match.
Young Pakistani pacer Naseem Shah stole the show, but not because he held the ball. He actually utilized the bat to win the game for the Babar Azam-led squad by defeating Afghanistan in the Super 4 match of the ongoing Asia Cup. Naseem’s two sixes off the first two deliveries of Fazalhaq Farooqi’s final over helped Pakistan win by one wicket. Even Babar, the team’s winning captain, found it difficult to contain his feelings after the game.
After the game, Babar presented Ravi Shastri with a prize and remarked, “This moment reminds me of Javed Miandad’s six.”
Shastri said, “Thanks for reminding me, I was there that day.”
Javed Miandad hit a six off the final delivery of Chetan Sharma’s bowling to earn Pakistan a historic victory in the 1986 Austral-Asia Cup. Even though Naseem didn’t hit a six on the final ball, his daring will live on in history.
The locker room was cramped, to be completely honest, Babar said after the game. The group was coming and going from the locker area. Naseem Shah finished it well.
“Two of the best bowlers are Mujeeb and Rashid Khan, and Sharjah is noted for its constantly low scoring. We only wanted to make the game more difficult. He discussed Pakistan’s strategies.
So with the ball start, we performed a terrific job. Our batting approach wasn’t very well executed, but Naseem was fantastic. Since I had seen Naseem act in this way before, I had confidence in him, the Pakistani skipper said.
Afghanistan achieved 129/6 in 20 overs when given the chance to bat first. When Pakistan was chasing 130, the score was 87/3 in the 16th over, and they appeared to be coasting. However, Pakistan lost steam after that and only managed to score 118/9 in the penultimate over. For Pakistan to win, they needed 11 runs in the final over, and Naseem Shah came through.
