Ahead of the Asia Cup, the Pakistan side will knock horns in the ODI series against Afghanistan(AFG), which begins on Tuesday. Babar Azam and Hasmatullah Shahidi will supervise their squad in the three one-day internationals.
On August 22nd, Tuesday, Afghanistan vs. Pakistan 1st ODI match at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota
Here is the actual Afghanistan and Pakistan tour schedule:
On August 24th, Thursday, Afghanistan vs. Pakistan 2nd ODI match at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota
On August 26th, Saturday, Afghanistan vs. Pakistan 3rd ODI match at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota,
The well-deserving team Pakistan has also made its winning record in the 50-over tournament, that merely happened against the Afghans. However, the warrior team also did extraordinary work but unfortunately. They didn’t seal the series as per past records. Their country’s team can defeat Pakistan’s champion team thanks to their outstanding starting lineup. The possibility is that Pakistan will keep maintaining their winning records in the ODI series.
Afghanistan’s ultimate goal is to seal a victory against Pakistan. Which will help them compete against the same team in the ODI World Cup. Which will be held in October 2023 on Indian soil. The teams are in excellent enough shape to win the majority of games on their own, helping them move up the cricket competition rankings.
