Afghanistan upset Pakistan in World Cup, chasing down 283

Afghanistan pulled off a stunning upset on Monday, defeating Pakistan by eight wickets in the Cricket World Cup. Chasing a target of 284, Afghanistan reached their target with ease, losing just two wickets along the way.

The Afghan victory was built on a solid foundation laid by their bowlers, who restricted Pakistan to 283 all out. Rashid Khan was the star of the show, picking up four wickets for 50 runs.

In reply, Afghanistan got off to a flying start, with openers Gulbadin Naib and Hazratullah Zazai putting on a 120-run partnership for the first wicket. Naib went on to score a century, while Zazai made a half-century.

The Afghan batsmen continued to score freely in the middle overs, and the victory was never in doubt. They reached their target in just 42.3 overs, with eight wickets to spare.

Afghanistan's victory is a major upset, and it is a sign of the progress that they have made in recent years. They are now one of the most feared teams in international cricket, and they will be looking to build on their success in the World Cup.
