Pakistan and Afghanistan will lock horns with each other in the 36th match of the World Cup at Headingley, Leeds. The Men in Green have kept their World Cup hopes alive after winning their last two matches against South Africa and New Zealand. We take a look at Pakistan’s Predicted Playing XI and Analysis.
On the other hand, Afghanistan has come up with disappointing performances. They haven’t been able to stand tall to the challenges and they would aim to end their World Cup campaign on a high. In fact, there is no doubt that Afghanistan has been let down by its batting performances.
Here is Pakistan’s Predicted Playing XI:
The southpaw batsman has got off to starts in the ongoing tournament. However, the left-hander hasn’t been able to convert them to a substantial score.
The left-hander has also got off to starts like his opening partner. But he hasn’t played a significant knock thus far in the tournament.
The stylish batsman has been Pakistan’s best batsman thus far. Babar Azam had scored a fine century in the previous match against New Zealand and he would like to continue his good form going.
The experienced batsman had played a loose shot in the previous match against the Kiwis. Thus, Hafeez will like to tighten the screws in the remaining matches.
The left-hander has infused new confidence in his team. The southpaw batsman has scored two back to back fifties and he would aim to continue the good work.
The Pakistan skipper had led with confidence in the previous match. Furthermore, Ahmed had plucked a one-handed blinder to dismiss Ross Taylor.
The all-rounder has done a decent job for Pakistan with both bat and ball. Wasim will like to keep delivering the goods for his team.
The leg-spinner had bowled a brilliant ball to dismiss Kane Williamson. Furthermore, Shadab was economical in his spell.
