Another important encounter in the Asia Cup 2014 is right ahead of us as Pakistan are going to face Afghanistan in the 3rd match of the tournament at Fatullah. It’s going to be an important match particularly for Pakistan as they will be looking to win this considerably easier encounter with a huge margin and consolidate their chances to make it to the final of the tournament. Pakistan vs Afghanistan live score ball by ball score updates.
Pakistan played brilliantly in the first game, though they lost the match, and tried their best to win the match giving Sri Lanka a real challenge to face while chasing down a huge target of 297 runs. If their batsmen produce another similar performance, the chances of Afghanistan might fade out drastically. Umar Akmal and Misbah will be the key players for Pakistan as they displayed brilliant character in the last match. Both of them put together a huge partnership of 121 runs which brought Pakistan back in the run chase. Ahmad Shahzad and Sharjeel Khan will have to play a bit more responsibly as a solid partnership up front will improve Pakistan’s chances in the match removing the pressure from the batsmen to come. The bowling department will again be relying majorly on Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal and Junaid Khan.
Afghanistan on the other hand will be looking to give their best out in the middle. It’s a big challenge for them to face a side like Pakistan in such a big tournament and they will be looking to produce something substantial. Some of their key players who will be in the spotlight in the next match will be Mohammad Nabi, Asghar Stanikzai, Mohammad Shahzad, Dawlat Zadran and Shahpoor Zadran. Dawlat Zadran was splendid in the last match against Ireland picking up 4 for 44 and can play a vital role for Afghanistan tomorrow. If their openers manage to see off the new ball efficiently, the will have a good chance to give a fighting performance in the next match.
Pakistan will not afford to lose this easy game and will be looking to go all ends up at the Afghans.
