A slender chance for Pakistan

England’s woes have been beneficial for the Pakistani team who was faced with league stage elimination after a string of defeats in the early stages of the championship.

However, it has made a remarkable comeback, and if it can maintain and continue to win its remaining matches, it stands a slim chance of making into the finals. However, its fortunes are tied with the results of two other games.

Afghanistan bowlers are dangerous on slow pitches

Afghanistan cannot be taken lightly by the Pakistani side, keeping in mind the fact that they gave the Indians the fright of their life and almost defeated the Indian team.

The pitch in Headingley in Leeds is very slow, and it was one of the reasons why Sri Lanka was able to defend a small total of 232 runs against England

Afghanistan spinners are performing very well and as the match against India had revealed, can be very dangerous on slow, and moving pitches ad choke the opposition from scoring freely.

The match will not have much impact on the fortunes of the Afghanistan team who have already been knocked out of the tournament. But beating a big cricketing nation like Pakistan will go a long way in establishing Afghanistan as a side to reckon with in the future. Afghanistan team has made one change, and Sayed Shirzad has replaced Aftab Alam in Afghanistan squad.
