World Cup 2019: Pakistan vs Afghanistan preview, head to head & match details

Pakistan is placed at the 6th position on the points table with 7 points while Afghanistan is at the rock bottom and yet to open its account.


Pakistan will take on with Afghanistan in the first clash of Saturday at Headingley Carnegie stadium. Pakistan is placed at the 6th position on the points table with 7 points while Afghanistan is at the rock bottom and yet to open its account.

After winning their last two matches in series Pakistan has climbed up on the points table and they need to win their remaining two matches to see them in semi-finals, provided the result of other matches work in their favour.

Afghanistan has nothing to lose as they have lost all their matches but they can impair the chances of other teams. The Gulbadin Naib-led side will look to seek confidence from their warm-up fixture where they had beaten Pakistan by three wickets.
