Pakistan’s bowling performance was particularly impressive against Asia Cup debutants Nepal in the opening match of the tournament in Multan. Despite losing early wickets, Pakistan posted a total of 342/6 in 50 overs, thanks to centuries from captain Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed. Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah contributed to the defeat, striking twice in the first over and landing the third blow to Nepal in the powerplay.

Pakistan’s premier pacers, Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah, restricted Nepal with quick and lethal strikes. The win gave Pakistan an ideal start and perfect tune up for the high-profile clash against arch-rivals India in Pallekele on Saturday. The Asia Cup is being played on a hybrid model this year, with Pakistan hosting four matches and Sri Lanka nine after India refused to tour Pakistan due to political tensions.

Pakistan, India, and Nepal are in Group A, while Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan are in Group B. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh meet in Pallekele on Thursday.
