Pak 'A' beat Afghanistan in ODI series



Gulbodin Naib's maiden hundred at any level failed to stop Pakistan 'A' winning the second one-day match against Afghanistan by six wickets on Tuesday, as the hosts took the series 2-0.

Naib, 21, hit a 93-ball 100 at No 8 to lift Afghanistan from a precarious 77-6, hitting 13 boundaries and three sixes in a fighting 93-ball knock after pacemen Wahab Riaz (3-30) and Imran Khan (3-35) wrecked the visitors.

Naib added 93 for the seventh wicket with Mirwais Ashraf who made 37 as the pair guided Afghanistan to 207-9 in their 50 overs.

Pakistan 'A' knocked off the required runs in 41.3 overs with Pakistan discard Kamran Akmal hitting a brilliant 104. Akmal hit 14 boundaries and a six during his 105-ball knock.

He put on 94 for the first wicket with Ahmed Shahzad who made 33.

Pakistan won the first one-day match by eight wickets – also played in Lahore – on Monday.

The two teams play a Twenty20 in Lahore on Wednesday.

Afghanistan are on a four-week tour of Pakistan to tune up for their two one-day internationals against Scotland in the United Arab Emirates next month before facing them again in the ICC World Cricket League Championship.
