Full Details of Match
The 36th match of men cricket world cup is to be played between Afghanistan and Pakistan at Headingley, Leeds. We are now at a stage where every team will be looking to confirming their spots for semis and hopefully we get to watch a good match.
Pakistan is now back in the tournament with 2 must win against South Africa and New Zealand. After the thrashing defeat against India, they were heavily criticized and the players did not want to leave their hotel rooms as Pakistani fans were mocking them all over. But now they are back in the game and this has definitely boosted their confidence. They will try very hard to win their remaining two matches and get a chance to qualify for the semifinals round.
Their batsman is now doing better as compared to earlier matches. Both Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq giving a good start to Pakistan either during or chase of first batting.Middle order performing well and their finishers ending the game perfectly for them. In their last match against New Zealand, Babar Azam played a gem of knock scoring 101 runs not out and chased the match perfectly along with Haris Sohail who also played brilliantly and finished the match with a comfortable at the end.
Their bowler’s form has come at the right time. Earlier they were struggling to pick wickets. Except for Mohammad Amir no other bowler giving Pakistan a breakthrough when it was needed. But in the last 2 matches, they have come strongly and defeating world class teams. Mohammad Amir is their star bowler who has continued to pick up wickets. In their match against New Zealand Shaheen Afridi bowled brilliantly and picked 3 wickets giving only 23 runs in his 10 overs quota. Pakistan team will have a lot of expectations from him.
On the other hand, Afghanistan is not doing great. Their chances in this world cup are over. They have done a few changes which proved to be wrong for them.Their internal issues are not letting them play good cricket and fight against the world-class teams. They dropped their inform player for a senior player as Najibullah Zadran was dropped to bring in Asgar Afghan.Dropping of Mohammad Shehzad is still the big controversy in this world cup.
After that win over Pakistan, they showed the world that they are also a world class team. There is no doubt about that but the way they executed their plans were not very convincing. Their main power is spinners but they did not get those tracks which allowed them to take wickets in Asia. In their last 2 matches, they got that kind of wicket but ended up on a losing side because their batting lineup is not that experienced.
Their spin bowling attack has always been their major strength. In their last match against Bangladesh, Mujeeb Ur Rehman bowled really well as the ball was spinning a lot and picked up 3 wickets giving only 39 runs in his 10 overs quota. Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan as always put breaks on the opposition team and pick wickets also. Their fast bowlers need to improve and their batting should be improved. Hopefully, we get to see a good fight from Afghanistan.

Pitch report and weather forecasting
There will be a very warm day as forecasted by the met department with expected to reach 28 degree Celsius. The pitch here has become dry with less grass cover on it so we expect a lot of turn and bounce. This will definitely interest Afghanistani bowlers as their major strength will come into the attack.
According to us team winning the toss will bat first as what we saw in England Vs Sri Lanka match on the same venue.The pitch will become more dry as the day passes and will not be easy for the batsman to score runs.
