Pakistan will look to force their way into the top four at the Cricket World Cup as they take on Afghanistan. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:30pm (AEST).

World Cup fever is doing strange things to people these days. Ever since Sri Lanka did the unthinkable and felled the mighty England, this tournament has suddenly come alive.

As the race for the semi-finals heats up dramatically, Pakistan have suddenly thrown their cards on the table too. After a thumping win over New Zealand, with Babar Azam’s silky smooth hundred drawing parallels to the likes of Virat Kohli, Pakistan are sky high with confidence, their victory providing the necessary fuel needed to reignite their momentum.

As the similarities to Pakistan’s successful 1992 World Cup campaign reach fever pitch, the current team may feel a bit of pressure tonight as they may be compelled to repeat the heroics of Imran Khan’s ‘cornered tigers.’

Regardless, Pakistan have some experienced heads in Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, and their astute captain Sarfaraz Ahmed who can steady the ship when plans go astray. The bowling is clicking together with left-arm quick Mohammad Amir the clear standout. He is currently the second highest wicket-taker for the tournament with 16 scalps in 6 matches at just 17.87.

Afghanistan do not have such hopeful aspirations having lost seven games on the trot, but they have shown glimpses of fight and resistance in their recent matches.

Against India, Mohammad Nabi dared to dream as his gutsy 52 featuring four fours and a six took his side within just 11 runs of clinching an unimaginable victory.

Despite the narrow loss, being able to restrict India to under 250 is no easy feat, and they should take some confidence from that excellent bowling effort. If their army of spinners can do the same in tonight’s clash, then a famous upset could be on the cards.

Rashid Khan needs to step up though. The champion leggie has been awfully quiet in this tournament and went the distance against England, going wicketless for a whopping 110 runs off just nine overs. He is a much better bowler than that, and how he fares in this game will go a long way in achieving Afghanistan’s World Cup goal of causing two upsets before they bid adieu.

Prediction
It’s difficult to see this one being anything other than a regular minnow bashing, but Afghanistan are a competitive team that have caused a few scares and bouts of nervousness to their opponents whilst going down with a fight. Regardless of whether it’s a one-sided or closely fought game, Pakistan will definitely emerge victorious tonight.

Catch us for all the action tonight on The Roar with our live blog, starting at 7:30pm AEST.
