No mercy shown to Afghanistan

Faisalabad:

Unbeaten half centuries by Sarfraz Ahmed and Saad Nasim lifted a second-string Pakistan side to a four-wicket victory over Afghanistan in the third and final one-day match on Sunday.


Ahmed hit an unbeaten 61 and No. 8 Nasim scored 50 off 41 balls to guide Pakistan A to a 3-0 series victory at the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad.

Afghanistan posted a challenging 274-9 off its 50 overs, with opening batsman Noor Ali Zardan scoring 51. Karim Sadiq made a useful unbeaten 42 off 26 balls and was supported by Mohammad Nabi, who hit three sixes in his breezy knock of 29.

Pakistan A was struggling at 183-6 in the 36th over before Ahmed and Nasim shared a match-winning 95-run stand as the home team made 278-6 in 48.1 overs.

Afghanistan was the first foreign team to tour Pakistan since the Sri Lankan team bus was attacked in March 2009.

Pakistan A won the first match by five wickets and the second by 150 runs.
