AFG vs PAK Betting Tips

  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz was the star with the bat for the home team as he scored an impressive 44-run inning to secure the team’s run chase of 131 runs. On the other hand, Fazalhaq Farooqi was the star with the ball for Afghanistan, taking 2 wickets and conceding only 19 runs, bowling at an economy rate of under 4.8 runs per over.
  • Imad Wasim was the leading scorer in the 2nd T20 as he scored 64 runs off 54 balls on a difficult batting wicket, smashing 3 boundaries and 2 sixes. Whereas, Ihsanullah once again chimed in to take a wicket by conceding 23 runs in his 3 overs.
  • Given the kind of form we have witnessed from Rashid Khan, we predict him to take over 1 wicket in the 3rd T20I as well.

AFG vs PAK 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Afghanistan will lock horns against Pakistan in the 3rd T20I in an attempt to clean-sweep the 2009 T20 World Champion in Sharjah on Monday. Having already won the first two games in the series, experienced Afghanistan would be looking to stamp their authority on their counterparts whereas Shadab Khan’s team will be looking to play for their pride. Ahead of this matchup, let us take a detailed look at the predicted playing XI, team news, and much more.

Afghanistan has dominatingly won the previous two games in the series by a margin of 6 and 7 wickets respectively. Having dismantled a short-handed Pakistan side that excluded the likes of Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, and noticeable stars, Rashid Khan has successfully led his unit to glory.

On the other hand, the Shadan Khan will be raring his inexperienced yet young and aggressive side to perform at the best of their abilities to win at least one T20 contest against Afghanistan in Sharjah.

AFG vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

The average first-innings batting score at this venue is 151, which makes it incredibly tough for teams to chase in the second innings due to the slowness off the pitch. This is just why, both captains will look to bat first at this venue.

Who will win Afghanistan vs Pakistan 3rd T20 Match?

Given the nature of the pitch, spin as well as fast bowlers can be crucial with the new ball in the first 10 overs. Pakistan’s bowling unit has failed to take wickets but haven’t also been given the opportunity to protect runs on the board by the batsmen, this is why Afghanistan seems most likely to win the 3rd T20I as well.

AFG vs PAK Top Team Batsmen

We would recommend you pick Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ibrahim Zadran, and Mohammad Nabi from the abetting lineup of Afghanistan. All of these three batsmen are most likely to feature within the 15 overs wherein they have the opportunity to settle in on a tough abetting surface in order to score big runs against their names.

From the Pakistan batting lineup, we would recommend you pick - Mohammad Haris, Imad Wasim, and Azam Khan. While Haris will be itching to make a positive impression in this series, Wasim is currently heading into this contest on the backs of a strong half-century.

AFG vs PAK Top Team Bowlers

From the bowling unit of Afghanistan, there are three obvious choices - Rashid Khan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Karim Janat. All these bowlers have not only been economical for the home side in this series but have even managed to take wickets in their quota of overs.

We would suggest you pick - Naseem Shah, Zaman Khan, and Ihsanullah from the bowling unit of Pakistan. All these three bowlers will have the opportunity to take early wickets. Moreover, Ihsanullah and Zaman even managed to take a wicket apiece by conceding less than 24 runs in the previous encounter.

Afghanistan vs Pakistan Prediction

Afghanistan doesn’t only have momentum and confidence riding high but has also got the squad to stamp their authority at regular intervals. Not only have their marquee players like Gurbaz, Rashid, Mujeeb, and Nabi performed exceptionally well but have even contributed to the success. This is just why we predict Afghanistan to register a 3-0 sweep against a young Pakistan team.
