Pakistan won by 3 wickets with 2 balls to spare in a nail-biting finish. And 1992 continues for Pakistan.
It was Afghan who won the toss and elected to bat first and put up 227 on the scoreboard after continuously losing wickets. Pakistan in the chase was never in control and in the 45th over the required run-rate was 9, but in 46th over Afghan Skipper Gulbadin gave away 18 runs in the overs and the match as well.
The game was full of swings. It was a must win for Pakistan. Still, a lot depends on England, India game which is scheduled to be played tomorrow.
Here are the best tweets from the absolute thriller.
I think it would be wise if they show a disclaimer before any Pakistan match from now on, advising viewers that watching the following telecast could have serious affects on your health, because that was a #HeartStopper #CWC19 #PAKvAFG #Rollercoaster 🇵🇰🏏

Shoaib Akhtar before the match : We will teach Afghans ‘Cricket’
Dear @shoaib100mph , Pak may have won the match but a young and budding cricketing nation just made you sweat your balls off to win. Try learning sportsmanship from them & congratulations on the win. #PAKvAFG

Go home Fevicol. Gulbadin Naib can fix much better. #PAKvAFG

This is a appreciation tweet for Afghanistan.
Afghan players don’t have their own home ground, they get training in India. There is fund problem in ACB. Despite all these problems, they qualified for the WC and played like a champion against Ind & Pak.
Well Done Afg.#PAKvAFG

A few Afghan spectators tried to assault the Pakistani duo that won the match for their team. In this picture, one of them is nabbed by the ICC security official. Shameful! #SoreLosers #PAKvAFG #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/vO1ePMtDZz
