Both the groups had received each their group video games within the event and have now misplaced consecutive matches to Sri Lanka and Pakistan. While India’s exit from the event forward of the ultimate did come off as a shock, Afghanistan had been a shoe in from averting each their and India’s early exit when Naseem Shah smashed two sixes off the final over to register a one wicket win for Pakistan.
