Afghanistan will be coming to play international cricket after a month’s break. Skipper Rashid Khan will be on the field with the best players in the team. Since their early exit from the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Afghanistan has witnessed some major changes in the squad.
The team looks well-balanced and has a good mix of young and experienced players.
Skipper Rashid Khan is expected to give young players a chance in the playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Najibullah Zadran, Ibrahim Zadran, Hazratullah Zazai, Karim Janat, Azmatullah Omarzai, Afsar Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rashid Khan(C), Naveen-ul-Haq, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
The biggest change in Pakistan’s camp has been the leader. Shadab Khan will be leading the team in absence of Babar Azam. Pakistan has included some new faces in the team and it looks like the squad is in process of a major revival. Abdullah Shafique, Faheem Ashraf, and Iftikhar Ahmed will be handling the batting responsibility.
In absence of Shaheen Afridi, the responsibility of disciplined bowling will be on the shoulders of Naseem Shah and Mohammad Wasim Jr.
New leadership will hope for some positive results for Pakistan with some new players in the T20 squad.
Predicted Lineup: Shadab Khan (captain), Abdullah Shafique, Faheem Ashraf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Ihsanullah, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Shan Masood, Zaman Khan
Pakistan are with some fresh faces who are motivated to perform and show their worth to the team. Afghanistan, on the other hand, has experienced players in the squad who can change the course of the game. It is going to be a last-ball thriller and we predict a win for Pakistan because of the quality of players they have in the playing XI.
