Pakistan vs Afghanistan Score Updates, World Cup 2023: Afghanistan pulled off their second major shock of the Cricket World Cup on Monday when they sent Pakistan crashing to an eight-wicket defeat.

Chasing 283 to win, Afghanistan rode on the back of impressive innings from Ibrahim Zadran (87), Rahmat Shah (77 not out), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (65) and skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi (48 not out) to reach their target with six balls to spare.

Afghanistan, who stunned defending champions England earlier in the tournament, and Pakistan both now have two wins and three losses from their five group games.

 and gets the wicket of Gurbaz.Pakistan finishers Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan ensured a good finish for their team as they smashed big boundaries in the final overs to take their team's score to 282/7 after 50 overs. Noor Ahmad clinched 3 crucial wickets to derail Pakistan batters, but Afghanistan pacers were not that effective. 

Noor Ahmad is continuing is great bowling as he dismissed Pakistan skipper Babar Azam to clinch his third wicket of the day. Babar Azam was trying to increasing the run rate in the final overs of game when Noor Ahmad dismissed him. 

Mohammad Nabi bowled beautifully today and dismissed Saud Shakeel. Pakistan is looking in trouble as vice captain Shadab Khan has joined Babar Azam on the crease. Afghanistan will look to capitalize on this instability. 

Noor Ahmad clinched two wickets and dismissed Abdullah Shafique and Muhammad Rizwan to disrupt Pakistan batting. Saud Shakeel and Babar Azam are on crease now, trying to bring some stability for Pakistan. 

Pakistan openers Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafique played in a good partnership but pacer Azmatullah Omarzai provided Afghanistan with first breakthrough as he dismissed Imam-ul-Haq and Pakistan skipper Babar Azam walked to the crease. 

Pakistan are batting first after winning the toss at the  MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Babar Azam-led side are looking to set up a big total on the board and put the Afghan batting under pressure in the second innings. Despite losing to New Zealand, Afghanistan will be brimming with confidence after beating defending champions England by 69 runs.

Pakistan, meanwhile, are in deep trouble after losing back-to-back matches against India and Australia. The Babar Azam-led side still don't look very settled as they continue to face problems in both their batting and bowling departments.

Pakistan's batting has failed to live up to the high standards set by the likes of Babar Azam, Mohammed Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed. The world number one batsman himself has been somewhat underwhelming in this edition of the World Cup. Adding to their woes, Pakistan's middle-order batsmen have struggled against spin bowling, as evidenced by their performances against India and Australia.

Afghanistan, on the other hand, have a solid bowling line-up in the spin trio of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who can take full advantage of the conditions at Chepauk. However, the Afghans will be looking for a solid performance from their batsmen if they are to find a way into the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023.

Pakistan and Afghanistan squads:

Afghanistan: Hashmatullah Shahidi (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Riaz Hassan, Rahmat Shah, Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Alikhil (w/k), Azmatullah Omarzai, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Noor Ahmad, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Abdul Rahman and Naveen ul Haq.

Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Rizwan (w/k), Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Salman Ali Agha, Mohammad Nawaz, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Wasim.
