Pakistan

Batting:

Pakistan made it 1-1 against India in the Asia cup, defeating them with 5 wickets and 1 ball while chasing down a target of 182. The Pakistani batsmen chased their highest ever T20 total against India and it was a sight to see on Sunday. The unexpected change of batting order of Nawaz proved to be successful for them as he cracked boundaries off the spinners and maintained his wicket when needed the most. Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman are yet to find their form in the Asia cup, who knows it may be in this match. Rizwan has been quite consistent, scoring fifties and leading his team to victory, Afghanistan will need to do their homework about him. The middle power hitting order includes Asif Ali, Khushdil, and Iftikhar who have been playing up to their mark since the last two games, if such performance continues, Afghanistan is going to have a tough time,

Bowling:

The bowling line-up suffered another pacer injury, Dahani was ruled out of the match on Sunday and Hasnain came in his place. The young player did not stand out as it was a high-pressure match for him. The Pakistani spin duo of Nawaz and Shadab has been taking up more responsibility recently and is proving dangerous for the opponents, it will be a battle of spin vs spin in this match. The other bowlers were a little expensive compared to them.

Afghanistan

Batting:

Afghanistan has been in tremendous form in the Asia cup however their winning streak was ended by Sri Lanka in a thriller match. The batsmen put up a target of 175 which is considered good enough however they were unable to defend it. Gurbaz has been their star batter, hitting 84 runs off 45 balls. Zadran scored a half-century but unfortunately, the middle order was inconsistent. Afghanistan has a well-balanced batting line-up that can score up to 175 if played with strategy.

Bowling:

When it comes to Afghanistan, their spinners are the ones to be taken care of. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rehman are their keys to dismantling the opponents though the real form of Rashid Khan hasn’t been seen in the tournament yet. Naveen Ul Haq is Afghanistan’s go-to pacer who takes an average of 2 wickets. Other than these, Farooqi and Nabi are doing an average job. Pacers and Rashid are the keys to taking Pakistani wickets as it has always been like this.
