WITH back to back victories over South Africa and New Zealand, Pakistan’s 2019 Cricket World Cup campaign is back on track again and a win against Afghanistan would edge them even closer to a spot in the semi-final round of the tournament.
The defeat against India by 89 runs had the potential to scuttle the Pakistani campaign but the Men in Green can see light at the end of the tunnel.
Owing to the inclusion of Haris Sohail, Babar Azam’s form and Mohammad Amir’s viciousness with the ball, Pakistan are now in a position where they can still qualify for the semi-finals if other results go in their favour.
On the other hand, Afghanistan who has been without any victories for the entire tournament came very close to defeating India.
Still fighting for their dignity, they would look to cause an upset and provide at least one opportunity for jubilation for their fans. For that to happen, their star men Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan have to be in fine form against Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men.
