Preview

Pakistan are scheduled to take on Afghanistan in the 22nd match of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. With two tough losses in their last two matches of the flagship tournament against India and Australia, the Men in Green have lost their way, while the Afghans have gotten the better of England in a convincing manner. Irrespective of their recent run of losses in the ODI World Cup 2023, Pakistan have a 7-0 head-to-head record against Afghanistan, which they will be looking to extend on October 23.

Pitch Report

The pitches at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai during the ODI World Cup 2023, have provided something for the batters, pacers, and spinners alike. The average first innings score at this venue in ODIs is 234, which is likely to be breached if a couple of batters of either team get big innings at the top of the order.

Team Analysis

Pakistan

Abdullah Shafique and Mohammad Rizwan are the pick of the batters for Pakistan in the ODI World Cup 2023, but they haven’t had support from the captain Babar Azam, which is far from ideal for the team management. The bowling department is hugely reliant on the early wickets from Shaheen Afridi, the lack of which has caused massive problems for the Men in Green in terms of curtailing the opposition to a below-par score.

Afghanistan

Rahmanullah Gurbaz has been the best batter for Afghanistan in the ODI World Cup 2023, while the rest of the lineup, including Azmatullah Omarzai and Ikram Alikhil have played well alongside him. The strength of the Afghans is their bowling lineup, wherein Fazalhaq Farooqi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi are starting to peak as a unit.

Match Prediction

Conclusion

Pakistan will have a psychological advantage over Afghanistan by holding an undefeated streak against them before they step onto the field to play their upcoming encounter in the ODI World Cup 2023. But, the Afghans know how to compete well against the Men in Green in limited-overs cricket, which will hold them in good stead on October 23.
