AFG vs PAK Betting Tips

  • Mohammad Nabi was the star for Afghanistan as he not only took 2 wickets in his 3 overs but also scored game-high 38 runs to help the home side ease past the victory line. On the other hand, Mujeeb Ur Rahman was the star with the ball for Afghanistan as he took 2 wickets and gave just 9 runs in his quota of 4 overs. We expect the 21-year-old to take over 2 wickets in the 2nd T20I as well.
  • Pakistan’s batting order failed miserably after none of their batsmen were able to score even 20 runs. Opening batsman Saim Ayub seemed to have gotten off to a decent start as he scored 17 runs off 15 balls but could not turn it into a big innings. On the other hand, Ihsanullah continued to impress with the ball, taking 2 wickets in his 4 overs by giving just 17 runs.
  • With the form Rashid Khan has been in, we expect the spin maestro to take over 2 wickets in the 2nd T20I for Afghanistan.

AFG vs PAK 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After beating a young and inexperienced Pakistan side in the 1st T20I, hosts Afghanistan will have the chance to close out the series at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday. While the home team will be high on confidence, Pakistan will be looking to seek vengeance after being handed such a brutal loss by 6 wickets, being the No. 3 side in the world in the same format. Prior to the start of the game let us take a detailed look at the predicted playing XI, team news, pitch report, and much more.

Afghanistan went into this T20I series with all of its veteran stars, and the result in the first encounter reflected how experience can come in handy. All of their marquee players were vital in registering a dominant win against Pakistan.

With the likes of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Afridi among other stars being placed, Pakistan’s young squad for this series failed to make a positive impression as the entire batting order collapsed against the solid spin unit of Afghanistan.

AFG vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

As the 1st T20I clearly indicated, this venue is a fortress for the bowlers, especially the spinners in the middle overs. So, both captains will be looking to field first.

AFG vs PAK, Sharjah Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

This is a dusty and dry wicket which makes it incredibly tough for the batsmen to counter attack the bowlers. Having to play the ball at their merit, batsmen will be required to take their time to settle in, on this track.

Sharjah Weather Report

There are no chances of rain as the humidity will peak around 52% during the match hours. The temperature is expected to be around 21 to 16 degrees.

  • Mohammad Nabi: The former Afghanistan Captain is not only an added asset who can ball brilliantly but will also be expected to bring stability into the batting unit.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman: The 21-year-old seems to be in the form of his life and is on the backs of 2 wickets entering the 2nd T20I.

PAK Team News

After being brutally thrashed, it seems only obvious that the likes of Ifthikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood will return to Pakistan starting XI for the 2nd T20I.

PAK Key Players

  • Ihsanullah: Being the only bowlers to take 2 wickets whilst defending a total of mere 93 runs previously, Ihsanullah will be raring to face the Afghanistan batting unit again.
  • Mohammad Haris: Having played so well in the recently concluded PSL 2023, this wicketkeeper-batsman will be looking to redeem himself by giving the away side a good start.
  • Azam Khan: Another intensely aggressive batsman, Azam got out on a duck in the 1st T20 but will be hoping to make his presence felt in the upcoming game.

PAK Team Form

Featuring in their first competitive T20I series after the conclusion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Pakistan will be looking to equalize the series against Afghanistan on Sunday, at all costs.

Who will win Afghanistan vs Pakistan 2nd T20 Match?

Given the nature of the pitch, it does seem like Afghanistan has a more balanced bowling unit as compared to Pakistan for this T20I series.

AFG vs PAK Top Team Batsmen

We would suggest you pick - Mohammad Nabi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Najibullah Zadran from the batting unit of Afghanistan. All of these three batsmen not only have to play a crucial role in making the home side get to a decent total but are also skilled to take their respective time to settle in, on a tough wicket as Sharjah’s.

From Pakistan, we would recommend you pick - Saim Ayub, Azam Khan, and Mohammad Haris. While Ayub and Haris will have the responsibility to get the away side off to a good start, Azam Khan will be the X-Factor in providing a quality finish to the team’s batting innings.

AFG vs PAK Top Team Bowlers

We would suggest you pick - Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Fazalhaq Farooqi from the bowling unit of Afghanistan. These three eplayers combined to take 5 wickets for the home side in the first T20I game and even game a combined total of just 37 runs in 12 overs.

From Pakistan’s bowling unit, the obvious choices are Ihsanullah, Zaman Khan, and Shadan Khan. While Ihsanullah was the best bowlers for the team in the first showdown, the likes of Zaman and Shadak can be crucial in taking wickets after the power play.

🏆 Afghanistan vs Pakistan Prediction

From what we have seen, bowlers can once again be the dominant force at this venue in order for both the teams looking for a win. This is just why the likes of Rashkid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi can come in handy for the home side as their marquee players not only have the experience but even the variation to take wickets on a track as such.
