Sharjah: All-rounder Imad Wasim hit a maiden half century to help Pakistan score 130-6 in the second Twenty20 international against Afghanistan in Sharjah on Sunday.

The left-hander struck 64 not out off 57 balls with two sixes and three boundaries to rescue Pakistan who were struggling at 63-5 after winning the toss and batting at Sharjah Stadium.

Imad and skipper Shadab Khan (32) added 67 for the sixth wicket.

Afghanistan won the first match by six wickets - also in Sharjah on Friday - to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Pakistan got off to a disastrous start with left-arm pacer Fazalhaq Farooqi claiming Saim Ayub and Abdullah Shafique, both for nought, in the first over of the innings.

Farooqi finished with 2-19 in his four overs.
