Match Preview

Afghanistan and Pakistan are going to face each other for the 3rd and final T20I tomorrow at Sharjah yet again.

Currently, Afghanistan is leading the series 1-0 and will look to seal the series today by beating Pakistan.

Moreover, the Afghans looked in good touch in the first game where they dominated the game throughout.

On the other hand, Pakistan bore the brunt of not having experienced players and the debutant players didn’t perform that well.

Therefore, they will look to play today and level the series with Afghanistan so that it converts into a thriller.

Therefore, we have a good game on our hands tomorrow but it will not be a very high-scoring one.
