Pakistan’s superb win over New Zealand have got them right back in the hunt for a top-four finish and with Afghanistan and Bangladesh to come they will without doubt fancy their chances. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game to help guide you into scoring the winning runs.
Pakistan Back In The Top-Four Race
Afghanistan are still winless, but they’ve given a much better account of themselves in their last two games. Firstly, they pushed India all the way, before restricting Bangladesh to 262, though their Achilles heel all tournament has been their batting and they once again fell short in the chase.
After overcoming New Zealand on Wednesday, Pakistan are still very much in the hunt for a semi-final spot. Playing before England, they have a fantastic opportunity to pile the pressure on the hosts, though they can blow hot and cold and will be wary of their Asian neighbours.
Pakistan v Afghanistan Betting Tips
Mujeeb Ur Rahman has looked a real threat over the last couple of games and over the whole tournament, his economy is an impressive 4.57.
This is only the second match to take place at Headingly and the first saw a slow, tricky pitch to score on. Mujeeb should get plenty of assistance and is our pick for top Afghanistan bowler.
As Afghanistan’s batting is so weak, it is always worth keeping a bowler onside for the man of the match market.
Pakistan possess a potent and varied bowling attack and it was Shaheen Afridi who really stood out against New Zealand, taking 3-28.
However, over the whole tournament, Mohammad Amir has been the standout bowler and so we’ll have a small wager on him.
