Asia Cup 2023: Iftikhar Ahmed, Babar Azam’s Tons Set Up Pakistan’s Clinical Victory Over Nepal


Pakistan defeated Nepal by 238 runs in their Asia Cup 2023 opener at the Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday (August 30). While Pakistan batted first and posted a formidable 342/6, thanks to hundreds from Iftikhar Ahmed (109* off 71), Babar Azam (151 off 131), they wrapped up the Nepal batting line up for 104 to wrap up a comprehensive victory. Shadab Khan’s 4/27 were the stand out bowling figures for the winning team.

While Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first, their batting did not get off to a desired start as they lost both their openers early.
