Pakistan made a change by bringing in Usama Mir in place of Shadab Khan. However, Usama Mir didn’t perform well as a bowler and also missed a crucial catch in the field. Consequently, it’s likely that Pakistan will consider reinstating Shadab Khan for this game.

Who will win the match between Pakistan vs Afghanistan

  • Pakistan holds a 7-0 lead in ODI cricket history against Afghanistan.
  • Afghanistan have lost 4 of their last 5 ODI matches.
  • Pakistan have won 2 of their last 5 ODI matches.

Pakistan holds a strong historical record against Afghanistan, yet their recent performance leaves much to be desired. Following a heavy defeat to India and another setback against Australia, doubts have arisen about Babar Azam’s Captaincy, and the bowling attack has shown signs of weakness. On the other hand, Afghanistan delivered a remarkable victory against England but couldn’t maintain their momentum in a loss to New Zealand. Although they are relatively inexperienced at the highest level, Afghanistan is eager to secure their maiden victory against Pakistan. The conditions in Chennai, with favorable conditions for spinners, should add an interesting dimension to the match. While it’s expected to be a closely contested battle, Pakistan holds a slight advantage in this encounter.
