World Cup 2023: Pakistan vs Afghanistan Preview

World Cup 2023

World Cup 2023 :

Two Asian cricket teams, Pakistan and Afghanistan, are set to clash in the World Cup 2023 in Chennai. The match preview and result prediction are eagerly awaited by cricket fans due to the history between these two nations, both on and off the field.

After recent losses against India and Australia, Pakistan seeks to get back on track with a win against Afghanistan. Despite Shaheen Afridi’s impressive five-for against Australia, Pakistan’s bowling performance has been subpar, with bowlers struggling to maintain accuracy and leaking runs. While the inclusion of Usama Mir in place of the underperforming Shadab Khan was a positive move, Mohammad Nawaz’s struggle to find form remains a concern for Pakistan.

With a strong batting lineup, Pakistan relies on its top order to perform well. The team’s unbeaten 7-0 record against Afghanistan in ODIs works in their favor, giving them a psychological edge.

On the other hand, Afghanistan has already defeated a top team in the tournament, England. They have a formidable spin attack and a resilient middle order led by captain Hashmatullah Shahidi. Afghanistan’s ability to challenge Pakistan is evident, and a victory wouldn’t be a shock.

In the result prediction, Afghanistan is expected to challenge Pakistan and may even push them to the brink of a historic defeat in World Cup matches. However, Pakistan’s experience and past performance might help them secure a win.

Predicted XIs:

Afghanistan: Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi (captain), Azmatullah Omarzai, Ikram Alikhil (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi.

Pakistan: Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Nawaz, Iftikhar Ahmed, Usama Mir, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf.
