World Cup 2019, Match 36, Pakistan v Afghanistan: Why Pakistan will win the match
With just a few matches away left in the first stage of World Cup 2019, Pakistan is standing at the 6th position on the points table. The nation would hope to rise in the points table as only 3 spots remain in the semifinal line-up. With Australia already in the semi-finals, 6 teams including Pakistan would sweat hard to grab the remaining places.
The Men in Green have already bagged 7 points on the table with 3 wins out of their 7 games and 1 match ending in no result. The Pakistani team is all set to battle against Afghanistan on Saturday which might improve their position on the table. Afghanistan would try hard to stop the Pakistan team from entering the final phase by outplaying them in the league stage match.
Pakistan has been having a great edition of World Cup so far with their star players stepping ahead and delivering the goods. Babar Azam and Mohammad Amir have been the top performers in this edition so far for Pakistan. With the star players performing their role, Mohammad Hafeez and Shaheen Afridi are also trying to play well in the recent matches.
As the Afghanistan bowlers are not having a great tournament, the Pakistani batting line-up would hope to make the most out of this opportunity by posting a huge score against them. Babar Azam could prove to be the main point of difference between the 2 sides as he won the game against New Zealand for his side.
Because of the poor form of Afghanistan’s bowling line-up, Pakistan looks one step ahead of them and also, the Afghan batsmen will struggle to play the Pakistani pace bowling trio. So, this makes Pakistan the favorites to win the match in Leeds.
