Match number 36 of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between Pakistan and Afghanistan at Headingley in Leeds.


Languishing at the last place in the points table with seven losses from seven matches, Afghanistan may not have the capability of returning with anything substantial from the tournament, but still can well spoil the party of a couple of teams.

Pakistan are coming on the back of two successive wins in the last two matches and will have momentum on their side. They are currently placed at the sixth place in the points table with three wins and three losses from seven matches. One of their game had been abandoned and the team is with seven points.

If Pakistan manage to win both of their last two matches, they will move to 11 points and that will give them an opportunity of qualifying through for the semifinals at the fourth spot. However, if they lose one more match, qualification possibilities will be as good as over for the Men in Green.

Pakistan and Afghanistan have clashed a total of three times in ODIs till now, out of which Pakistan have won all the three games. The last encounter between the two teams was during the 2018 Asia Cup when the match went right down to the wire and Pakistan succeeded in registering a three-wicket win.

In the last five matches played by Pakistan, they have won two and lost two, while Afghanistan have lost all of their last five matches.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Pakistan- Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c,wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi

Afghanistan- Gulbadin Naib (c), Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan, Mohammad Nabi, Najibullah Zadran, Samiullah Shenwari, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Rashid Khan, Dawlat Zadran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
