Pakistan vs Afghanistan, World Cup 2019
Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan crush Afghanistan to keep the semi-final hopes alive
After the defeat against the Indian cricket team, the Pakistan Cricket team made a tremendous comeback in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The team has kept its hopes of reaching the semifinals alive by winning two consecutive matches.
Although not enough for the team, the team will have to win both their matches and also be dependent on the results of the other teams. On Saturday, Pakistan Cricket team will play their next match against Afghanistan cricket team (Afghanistan cricket team) at Headingley.
Afghanistan beat Pakistan in a warm-up match
Afghanistan cricket team is already out of the World Cup but still, Pakistan cannot forget to take it lightly. The reason behind this is that the Afghanistan team has defeated Pakistan in the practice match played before the World Cup.
By the way, Pakistan has reconquered South Africa and then New Zealand in the last two quarters, in a way that has revived itself in this tournament. New Zealand had to break the winning streak in this World Cup.
Pakistan won that confidence by winning that would be enough for him. Once the world winner had performed the ball and bat, it was great. The team is still concerned about bus fielding.
Close to every door for Afghanistan
At the same time, there is nothing left for Afghanistan in this tournament. There was no hope for miracles from Afghanistan but even then it felt that this team could turn upside down a couple or two. So far, Afghanistan has played seven matches, and it is destined to lose all.
He is still a threat to any team though. At the same time, it is certain that it will become a barrier in Pakistan’s path, which he would certainly want to do.
It will not be easy. Afghani batsmen are facing a difficult task in the face of Pakistani bowling. Mohammed Amir and Wahab Riaz were the main axes of the team’s bowling till now, but in the previous match, Shahid Afridi took three wickets and made Kiwi’s batting helpless.
At the same time, Babar Azam is a big name in Pakistan’s batting. Babar had scored a superb inning against New Zealand in the last match and won the team. Harris Sohail also scored his second fifty. Apart from these, Mohammed Hafeez can also play big innings.
Talking about Afghanistan’s bowling, the magic of his star spinner Rashid Khan has not been the same in this World Cup. On some occasions, Mohammed Nabi and Mujib ur Rahman have done well, but this spin Tigadi did not see that effect, for which he is known. Rahmatullah Jajai and Hasanatullah Shahidi are his strongest link in batting.
