WATCH : Farooqi delivers Afghan special first-up to send Allen’s stump cartwheeling


Afghanistan’s rise in world cricket continued on Friday in Guyana, as they reduced New Zealand to 53/7 midway through their chase of 160, nearing a significant World Cup upset.

The turning point came with a stunning spell by Fazalhaq Farooqi, who struck fear into the Kiwis with a perfect inswinger on his very first delivery.

Building on his five-wicket haul from the game against Uganda, Fazalhaq delivered a full ball to Finn Allen, aiming to utilize the swing of the new Kookaburra.

The ball tantalizingly moved in the air as Allen lined up a big shot towards the leg side. Pitching sharply, the delivery deviated dramatically, beating Allen’s bat and sending his leg stump cartwheeling.

Fazalhaq’s ecstatic celebration ensued as his teammates chased him down, while a stunned Allen stood momentarily in disbelief, appreciating the brilliance he had faced. Social media buzzed with admiration for Fazalhaq’s exceptional performance.
