How to Watch Afghanistan vs Pakistan Cricket 2021 in the US

Pakistan will look forward to continuing an astonishing run in the 2021 ICC T20 Men’s World Cup Super 12 when Babar Azam’s team take on Afghanistan on Friday. Azam has led his nation to shocking victories over India and New Zealand. The captain has thrived with the bat, alongside Mohammad Rizwan, while Haris Rauf has been the star of the bowling attack.

Afghanistan won’t come to Sharjah Cricket Stadium with the same momentum, but the squad beat Scotland by 130 runs last time out. Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Najibullah Zadran were the most prolific at the gate.

Afghanistan vs Pakistan preview

Captain Mohammad Nabi only needed to contribute 11 of the 190 runs Afghanistan scored against Scotland. His job became easier with Gurbaz and Zadran’s partner. The first made its way to 46 of 37, including four sixes. Zadran was even more prolific, putting 59 on the board from just 34 balls. His payout was five fours and three sixes. He was eventually caught by Brad Wheal, but the damage was done.

The Afghanistan attack was started in style by starter Zazai. The 23-year-old achieved a 44 out of 30, achieving a trio of four and the same number of six in the process. If these hitters can maintain their form, the Afghan order will be the key to victory.

Azam will seek to disrupt entries with Shaheen Afridi. Pakistan’s star pacemaker threw 13 points, took a wicket and allowed just 21 runs against the Black Caps. Their performance was a worthy follow-up to an impressive display against India, when Afridi seized three wickets.

Fortunately for Pakistan, the bowling attack is far from a one-man show. Not when Rauf is peppering the gate with rhythm. His right arm proved fatal against New Zealand, taking a quartet of wickets. Those at the end of Afghanistan’s order will fear that Rauf will focus on the wicket.

Team Green also has more than one possible match winner in the fold. Rizwan hit five fours as a platform for a 33-run effort against New Zealand, but Shoaib Malik and Asif Ali also garnered attention. They combined for 53 not out, and both are adept at standing up to spin.

While the score against the Kiwis was solid, Pakistan will need more runs to match and overcome the Afghan order. Azam and Rizwan will need to replicate their exploits against India, when the captain was not out of 68, while his opening partner scored an undefeated 79. Fakhar Zaman can also produce more from the key number three spot.

Leg spin specialist Rashid Khan will be Afghanistan’s main remedy for Pakistan’s dynamic hitters. Khan was ruthless against the Scots, sending Chris Greaves, Michael Leask, Brad Wheal and Josh Davey packing. Khan will be helped if Mujeeb Ur Rahman can create movement with some tricky deliveries and off hiatus.

The turning section of the Afghan attack has the biggest role to play in it. If they can dominate early on the slow terrain of the UAE, Afghanistan will abruptly end Pakistan’s winning streak in Group 2.
