One minute down, next minute up!
Pakistan cricket team yet again lives up to this statement as they win a thrilling match against Afghanistan to keep their world cup dream alive!
Where the last match against New Zealand proved to be an easy win for the green shirts, we all were hoping to see another one-sided contest against Afghanistan.
However, Pakistan cricket team made sure to make it as exciting as the previous matches and people on social media were having a hard time, once again, supporting our team.
Throughout the match, there were many high and low moments but in the end, Imad Waseem and Wahab Riaz made sure to gain those 2 important points for Pakistan. And now, Pakistan has jumped on to the 4th spot in the points table and we cannot be happier!

Well, Pakistan vs Afghanistan was not expected to as exciting as it proved to be. Where it became harder to hold on to our nerves while watching the match, our players did a pretty good job to handle the pressure and end it on a winning note.
Now, Pakistan fans will support India in their match against England because that will make our way to the semifinals a bit easier!
