Afghanistan Hopes To Bounce Back Against Pakistan l Asia Cup 2022 l

September 7, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News


With a victory, Pakistan will be one step closer to the title game, while Afghanistan will be eager to make their Super 4s debut.

On Wednesday, Pakistan and Afghanistan—two sides that are quite accustomed to the UAE—will face off against one another for the first time in the Asia Cup and for the third time in T20Is. Even though Pakistan has a flawless record against Afghanistan, having won both of their meetings in 2013 and 2019, the game in Sharjah will be open to anybody.

Afghanistan began the Asia Cup with two excellent victories over higher-ranked Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the group stage, but they were defeated by Dasun Shanaka’s team in the first Super 4 game despite scoring 175 for 6. However, there were leftovers for them.

It was a tight game, to start. Overall, they’ve demonstrated that they are no longer only dependent on the wicket-taking spin combination of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and skipper Mohammad Nabi. Fast bowlers Fazalhaq Farooqi and Naveen-ul-Haq for them have proven to be match-winners.

Najibullah Zadran, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Ibrahim Zadran are just a few of the batsmen who have risen to the occasion. If Afghanistan is to go to the finals, they must maintain such standards.

Meanwhile, despite missing their skipper and having important players injured, Pakistan has been able to produce convincing victory. In filling in for Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan has performed admirably, scoring 192 runs in three innings. Fakhar Zaman and Khushdil Shah have also contributed, and all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz scored 42 runs off 20 balls in the last game against India after moving up to the No. 4 position.

Their greatest strength continues to be their bowling, as spinners Shadab Khan and Nawaz have combined for 13 wickets in three games. The onslaught appears to be much more effective when the young Naseem Shah is included in the scene.

Pakistan will go to the final with a win, but they will face a very determined opponent in Afghanistan, who is also vying for their first Super 4 triumph after defeating the defending champions India in a thrilling last-over match.

It’s difficult to replace a bowler like Shaheen Shah Afridi in Pakistan’s bowling lineup, but Naseem Shah, who has played in only three T20Is, has shown he can come close. His blistering pace and swing made him a star in red-ball cricket, and it turns out that the same combination also works in the shorter formats. The 19-year-old has taken five wickets in three tournament games so far, and he will be crucial in limiting Afghanistan’s improving batting. Especially now that Haris Rauf, who is seasoned, is having some difficulty.

Pitch And Circumstances:

As has been the case in two out of the three games played in Sharjah, the side batting first will be hoping to score a lot. Sri Lanka outran Afghanistan’s 175 while Pakistan defeated Hong Kong with a score of 193.

The Pakistani medical staff has given Rizwan, who suffered a knee injury on Sunday, the all-clear to play. He will continue to bat at the top of the order and stand behind the wicket.

Stats:

  • In the past, Pakistan has defeated Afghanistan in both of their T20I matches.
  • The Pakistani player with the best economy rate in this Asia Cup (with at least five overs) is Shadab Khan, who has a 5.43.
  • In T20s, Rashid Khan has five times eliminated Babar, scoring 58 runs off of 48 balls in the process.

Shaheen Shah Afridi, who is injured, has been replaced in the Pakistani team for the 2018 Asia Cup by Mohammad Hasnain.

Hasnain, who earned a name for himself as a fast bowler as a youth, has advanced steadily. He has played 18 T20 Internationals for his nation and taken 17 wickets in those matches. With spells in the Big Bash League, the Caribbean Premier League,

English county cricket, and the Hundred, where he most recently represented the Oval Invincible, he has also gained notoriety abroad. In T20Is, the 22-year-old has already scored three times.

Hasnain has also encountered certain difficulties. He was barred from bowling in international cricket in February when it was discovered that his actions were questionable. Marcus Stoinis seemed to query the fast bowler’s release earlier this month, but Hasnain was eventually able to remedy it and was given full clearance to bowl once again.

On August 28, Pakistan will play its opening match in the Asia Cup against India. They had hoped that Shaheen, whose knee injury had been concealed by the team management since he had it in July, would be able to recuperate by that time.

He continued to train with the team and even went on trips; he was a member of the ODI team that won over the Netherlands, but he did not participate in any of the three matches. Shaheen was eventually informed that he required four to six weeks off, and as a result,

He was disqualified from both the Asia Cup and the next seven-match T20I series against England. In order to be healthy for the T20 World Cup in October as well, he must act quickly.
