Today (Wednesday) at the Sharjah Stadium in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan and a talented Afghanistan team will play in a Super 4 match for the Asia Cup. Pakistan has beaten India twice in this format. The green shirts won a nail-biter over India on Sunday, a great way to start off their Super 4 campaign. After the victory over Afghanistan on Wednesday, Pakistan will be considered a serious contender to advance to the championship game. The Pakistani team, led by captain Babar Azam, has already acknowledged that they must now collaborate to succeed. Read out the complete details about Pakistan vs Afghanistan down below with us!


Before Wednesday’s game, Babar gave an interview. According to Saqlain, the team’s successful start against India resulted from astute and strategic selections translated into victories by the batters, who so demonstrated and emphasised their formidable batting depth, power, and prowess.

“Afghanistan is a good squad, as they’ve shown on occasion, but we’re optimistic,” Pakistan coach Saqlain Mushtaq said.

The conditions in Sharjah will favour spinners, but if a batter spends enough time in the middle, the shorter boundaries will allow for more runs. “The decision to promote Mohammad Nawaz to number four to counter India’s leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Bishnoi paid dividends.

Mohammad Rizwan, Pakistan’s most successful batsman since 2021 and the tournament’s leading run-getter, overcame a knee injury in the first innings to post the highest score of the match. The victory over India has boosted the team’s morale and demonstrated our batting depth, said, coach Saqlain Mushtaq.

“So, smart handling is required in T20 cricket, and we have the players to do it.” We were all aware that Mohammad Nawaz could perform under duress. It’s incredible how quickly this kid took over the game from India. Thus, what Shadab Khan and Nawaz did for us in the middle overs was priceless,” Saqlain said.

“In the final over, Haris Rauf delivered superb yorkers to keep Virat Kohli glued to his crease. Our spinners are dangerous in the middle overs, and Haris Rauf is a class act in the death,” said Naseem Shah and Shahnawaz Dahani. Plus, any opposing batter would be scared with Shaheen Afridi in the lineup.


Also, Mohammad Rizwan did not attend Dubai Academy training but will face Afghanistan on Wednesday. He’s rested ahead of the Afghanistan game.
