New Delhi. Perhaps the biggest upset in the history of the ICC T20 World Cup has been witnessed this time. The Afghanistan team won a very thrilling match against Australia. Batting first, the team scored 148 runs for 6 wickets on the basis of half-centuries from Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran. The Kangaroo team, which came out to achieve this, faltered badly and the Afghan team upset the team.

The Afghanistan team pulled off the biggest upset in the ICC T20 World Cup by forcing a strong team like Australia to kneel down. After losing the toss and coming in to bat first, the Afghan team got off to a solid start with a century partnership between openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran. Both batsmen got out after scoring half-centuries. Thanks to Gurbaz's 60 and Zadran's 51 runs, the Afghan team put up a fighting score.

Gulbadin turned the match around
Afghanistan's fast bowler Naveen Ul Haq gave Australia early blows and completely changed the course of the match. Captain Rashid Khan handed the ball to Gulbadin Naib and everything changed. By taking four wickets one after the other, this experienced player dashed Australia's hopes. He took 4 big wickets for 20 runs in 4 overs. Gulbadin took the big wickets of Marcus Stoinis, who was in top form, and Glenn Maxwell, who was playing after scoring a half-century. He also dismissed Tim David and then Pat Cummins.
