Cricket World Cup Preview for June 29th, 2019
Pakistan are on a serious pursuit for a top-four ending in the table at the Cricket World Cup. They have been amusingly unpredictable, but they are, however in the mixer. If they get victory in their two final matches, beginning with this one, then they will be in with a considerable chance. Afghanistan is in danger of returning home without any point.
Pakistan on the lead
With three leads, three fails and one washed out the match, it has been a mixed box from Pakistan in this World Cup. During midweek they got hold of a notable triumph over New Zealand. That was what kept their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages awake. Considering that they are only fighting Afghanistan and later on Bangladesh in their last game, completing the round robin stage on a high is a huge probability. They head towards this one on the back of two victories over South Africa and then New Zealand.
Pakistan got to hold a six-wicket victory over New Zealand at Edgbaston. That was New Zealand’s first fail at the match. So where did that win for Pakistan originate from? Well, they were assisted out by the slower, spinning pitch without question. It cost a lot away from New Zealand’s bowling attack and that assisted Pakistan to acquire a massive two points. They are expected to pick up some two more here. It is probably worth a view at the participators at the top of the order in the Top Pakistan batsman market in which Fakher Zaman together with Imam ul Haq is the 10/3 joint favorite.
Head to head
In the three previous games between the two teams, Pakistan has won all of them.
There has been too much for Afghanistan during this World Cup. They will have one match to go after this, and that will be against West Indies. They can target that as an opportunity to finish on a top.
Afghanistan has not made it to earn a point on the board in his campaign. Their last game was against Bangladesh, who took the lead by 62 runs. Afghanistan was pursuing a total of 263, which they never seemed likely to achieve. They only seemed as if they were attempting to bat out their overs, pleased to hang around at the crease and gain some playing time. They were bowled away regardless with three overs to go.
Pakistan is likely to win this match easily. It is an excellent opportunity to keep their momentum moving along. The victory over New Zealand will have placed some wind in their sailing, and they can as well cruise in this one. They will likely bat first if they happen to win the toss and back a hundred to be scored at 4/5.
On the same day, New Zealand v Australia Odds will pick up on each other.
Here are the odds
New Zealand 11/8.
