Afghanistan's warm-up tour of Pakistan got off to a losing start yesterday as they fell to an eight-wicket defeat at the hands of the hosts' second-string team

Pakistan ‘A’ bowlers led by captain Shahid Afridi bundled the Afghans out for a paltry 122 in 38.5 overs with the main resistance coming from Mohammad Shahzad who scored 33 and Javed Ahmadi who managed 23.

Afridi, trying to regain some form after being dumped from Pakistan’s one-day side, finished with 3-24 and Pakistan knocked off the required runs in just 16.1 overs with another one-day discard, Umar Akmal, scoring an unbeaten 47.
