CHENNAI – Afghanistan created history on Monday by beating Pakistan for the first time in a World Cup match. 

Afghanistan beat Pakistan by 8 wickets in the 22nd match of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023 in the Indian city of Chennai. 

Beleaguered Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first against Afghanistan in today's game which is a challenging task of resurrecting a faltering campaign in the Cricket World Cup.

Pakistan were 282 at the end of their innings. Afghanistan chased the target in 49 overs at the loss of 2 wickets.

The game between Pakistan and Afghanistan is being played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Monday.

Asian sides renew their long-going rivalry, often reflected in the turbulent political relations, with both sides looking for a win at the Cricket World Cup.

Men in Green entered the leading ICC event with win over the Netherlands and Sri Lanka, but the team faced back-to-back losses to arch-rival India and Australia.

With multiple blows, the team slipped to 5th spot in the points table with the top four going through to the semifinals.

Hashmatullah led Afghanistan, on the other hand, pulled off stunning win over defending champions England in the Cricket World Cup but have also slumped to three defeats.

Despite Afghanistan's top form in CWC, the team is yet to beat Green Shirts in ODI format, with Pakistan winning all 7 games that were played in the last decade.
