Betting Tips
  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz hit a 37-ball 46 against Scotland. His innings included 4 sixes and he is our recommendation for Afghanistan’s highest run scorer against Pakistan. Rashid Khan took 4-9 from 2.2 overs against Scotland and is well worth backing as Afghanistan’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Mohammad Rizwan has been in excellent form with the bat in both games for Pakistan so far in the tournament. The keeper-batter is our pick for Pakistan’s highest run scorer against Afghanistan. With the ball, Haris Rauf took 4-22 against New Zealand and is a strong choice for Pakistan’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • There are plenty of talented players on both teams but Mohammad Rizwan is playing the cricket of his life at the moment. He is our pick for the Player of The Match Award.

After cruising to victory in the big match against India, Pakistan’s batting line-up was tested to a far greater extent in the win over New Zealand. Their lower order firepower was impressive and will give their openers even more confidence. All of Pakistan’s squad are available for this match.
