5 Players to Look Out for in Pak Vs Afg Match

In the fourth game of the Super 4 for the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, Pakistan and Afghanistan will square off today in Sharjah. After winning their first Super game on Sunday against India, the team is riding off a high. By overcoming Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, the team will now attempt to advance to the championship game.

With bat and ball, the Azam-led squad has scored. The Asia Cup’s top run-scorer, Mohammad Rizwan, has been spearheading the charge. Power hitters like Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah have been able to start strong thanks to the innings being supported by the little right-hand batter. Both Naseem Shah and Shadab Khan have bowled quite well. In three innings, he hasn’t scored more than 30 runs, and he would like to now.

In contrast, Afghanistan put up a valiant effort against the Lankans in their first Super-4 game but was unable to land the decisive blow. The Lankan bowlers made a small improvement as they went after a 170+ target. The team’s batting has been strong, with Zazai and Rahmanullah Gurbaz having strong beginnings. Afghans want to do well against Pakistan with both the bat and the ball.

5 Key Players to Look Out for in Pakistan Vs Afghanistan Asia Cup Match

Babar Azam (Pakistan)


Babar is having trouble with his form and hasn’t yet recorded a significant knock; this game might be the one where he finds his rhythm. Babar Azam, Pakistan’s skipper, and best batter, has been in outstanding form and is a crucial part of the Pakistani team. During his time in office, he has led Pakistan incredibly well, and he will want to do the same against Afghanistan.

Mohammed Rizwan (Pakistan)


Even though Babar Azam has been a great addition to Pakistan’s batting, the team has benefited even more from his relationship with wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan. Rizwan has also so far enjoyed a fruitful career with the Pakistani team. With two already, he leads the Asia Cup in run scoring.

In the previous match against India, Rizwan scored 71 runs off 51 deliveries for his second fifty of the competition and a strike rate of 139.22. With 192 runs at an outstanding average of 96, Rizwan also surpassed Kohli as the top scorer in the continental competition.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (Afghanistan)


Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Afghanistan’s opener who has 135 runs in three games at an average of 45 in the Asia Cup 2022, would be greatly relied upon. In Afghanistan’s first Super 4 game, he took the initiative against Sri Lanka, but it was in vain.

Najibullah Zadran (Afghanistan)


Even though Najibullah Zadran of Afghanistan has the highest strike rate in the Asia Cup 2022 at 213.79 percent, he would like to score more runs. He could rise to the front of the lineup. Mohammad Nabi, the all-rounder, and captain of Afghanistan are having trouble with his batting, which is concerning.

Naseem Shah (Pakistan)


Another pace bowler on this Pakistani team to watch is the youngster, Naseem Shah. Shah, who is only 19 years old, has performed admirably for the Pakistani side in each outing. In three Asia Cup games, Naseem took five wickets.
