9.3: Aayan Khan pitches one up, right into Gurbaz’s slot, and the batsman cleverly chips it towards long-on. The fielder, positioned slightly square, is unable to reach it, and the ball lands just in front of the ropes for a four.

9.1: Gurbaz takes charge against Aayan Khan, showcasing a splendid six by lofting the ball over long-off. This shot marks a 50-run partnership between the batsmen, setting the stage for Afghanistan.
