Asia Cup 2022: Pakistan vs Afghanistan – Super Four Match 4 Preview and Updates

Pakistan vs Afghanistan – Afghanistan will face Pakistan in the fourth match of the Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. After defeating India in the first match of the Super 4, Pakistan is aiming for the top spot in the group, which will allow them to advance to the league final.

Afghanistan won both group stage matches to become the first team to qualify for the cup’s Super 4 round, while Pakistan won one and lost one match during the group stage. A win over Afghanistan will allow Pakistan to qualify for the finals, while a win for Afghanistan will allow them to continue their campaign for the Asia Cup 2022.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Afghanistan’s key wicket-taker in this tournament, will need to strike gold against Pakistan’s top-order batting lineup. On Wednesday, Pakistan’s pace attack will be put to the test against Afghanistan’s top-order batting unit.

Pakistan (Match Odds – 1.43):


A successful chase against India boosts Pakistan’s confidence, and with that momentum, they will face Afghanistan in their second Super 4 match of the Asia Cup. A victory in the upcoming match will strengthen their position in the cup finals.

Babar Azam’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss against India in the previous match was not supported by the team’s bowlers. While the pace attack struggled against the Indian batting unit, the spin duo of Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan were able to exert pressure by taking three wickets in a row. Few poor fielding efforts and costly death overs cost them 181 runs.

Babar Azam’s Asia Cup struggles continued as he chased a target of 182 runs. However, Mohammad Rizwan (71 runs from 51 balls) and Mohammad Nawaz (42 runs from 20 balls) helped them set up a win against the Indian bowling attack. Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali contributed to their victory in the final over.

A win over India has altered the team’s dynamics, allowing Pakistan to play more aggressive cricket in the coming matches. Their next match against Afghanistan will be crucial because a win will help them maintain first place in the points table.

Full Squad:

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Khushdil Shah, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Naseem Shah, Usman Qadir, Haider Ali, Hasan Ali, Shahnawaz Dahani

Players to watch out for:

Mohammad Rizwan

Mohammad Rizwan appeared to have suffered a leg injury while on the field on Sunday. He shrugged it off, however, and went on to score a match-winning 71 runs off 51 balls.

Mohammad Nawaz

The 28-year-old all-rounder put on a brilliant performance with bat and ball to help Pakistan win the game and earn the Player of the Match award against India. He scored 42 runs off 20 balls and took 1-25 off three overs.

Shadab Khan

Pakistan’s top wicket-taker on Sunday was the bowling all-rounder. KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant were both dismissed by him.

Afghanistan (Match Odds – 2.80):


Afghanistan failed to maintain its dominance in the Super 4 against Sri Lanka after a dominant performance in the group stage. To continue their campaign for the Asia Cup 2022, they will play Pakistan in Sharjah on September 7th.

Afghanistan’s top-order batting lineup provided a solid start to the team in the previous match against Sri Lanka. Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored 84 runs off 45 balls, striking a ball at a strike rate of 186.66. The middle-order batters were unable to convert their strong start into a large total, as the team only managed 175 runs.

Despite Mujeeb Ur Rahman’s economical spell of 2 wickets for 30 runs in 4 overs, no other bowler was able to put pressure on opponents, and Sri Lanka chased down the target on the first ball of the 20th over. Afghanistan’s main issues in Asia Cup 2022 will be its middle order batting lineup and death over bowling.

Afghanistan must properly utilize its batting strengths to counter Pakistan’s attacking bowling unit. A win against Pakistan will keep them in contention for the finals, whereas a loss in the upcoming match may end their campaign for the Asia Cup 2022.

Full Squad:

Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Ibrahim Zadran, Mohammad Nabi (c), Najibullah Zadran, Karim Janat, Samiullah Shinwari, Rashid Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Afsar Zazai, Fareed Ahmad Malik, Usman Ghani, Azmatullah Omarzai, Noor Ahmad

Players to watch out for:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Despite losing to Sri Lanka, the 20-year-old keeper-batter was named Player of the Match. During the match, he hit four fours and six sixes.

Ibrahim Zadran

The tournament’s young right-handed batter has been very impressive. He had 42 unanswered runs against Bangladesh and 40 against Sri Lanka.

Rashid Khan

Over the last two games, the leg-spinner has taken four wickets. On Saturday, he took 3-22 against Bangladesh and dismissed Danushka Gunathilaka.
