Afghanistan fall in Pakistan tour opener



Afghanistan's warm-up tour of Pakistan got off to a losing start on Monday 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.

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.
