However, Afghanistan, who lost to Sri Lanka on Saturday, has made a couple of changes with Azmatullah Omarzai and Fareed Malik getting a game. Talking about the incident, Fareed Ahmad bowled an absolute gun delivery to Asif Ali as he banged a short-pitched delivery with a third man and a fine leg in the ring.

Asif was hurried and surprised and he failed to execute the pull shot and top=edged it for the short fine-leg fielder to take a simple catch, who backtracked to take it over his head.
