Afghanistan off-spinner Mohammad Nabi took two quick wickets to slow Pakistan’s progress in the World Cup match at Headingley on Saturday. A third straight victory for Pakistan would see them leapfrog England and move into fourth place in the 10-team table after a poor start to the tournament. Afghanistan managed 227 for nine in their 50 overs and Pakistan, who have never lost a one-day international to their neighbours, were cruising at 72-1 in reply. But Nabi struck with the last ball of the 16th over when he lured Imam-ul-Haq from the crease and had the left-hander stumped by Ikram Alikhil for 36. In his next over he bowled Pakistan’s in-form Babar Azam, who departed after scoring an attractive 51-ball 45. Babar and Imam had steadied the ship after Pakistan lost opener Fakhar Zaman for a duck off the second ball of the innings, trapped leg-before by spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman. (LIVE SCORECARD)
