Pak Bowling Firepower

Mohd Amir, Shaheen Afridi & Wahab Riaz have finally struck form and are all set to derail the Afghan batting line up. Afghanistan needs to pull something special if they are even thinking close to getting to win this match. Gulbadin & his men are all in a party spoiler mode so Pak cannot take them for granted.
Coming together as a Unit

Afghanistan team has been going through a lot many controversies internally. If they really need to take Pak head on just like the way they did against India, they really need to come together as a unit. For Pakistan too, it depends which Pakistan comes on the field, the tired & lethargic one or the young and dynamic one.
The Sohail Factor
Haris Sohail’s inclusion has changed Pakistan’s destiny big time. He has been absolutely amazing the number of times he’s been given the opportunity. He can well take on the bowling attack along with Babar Azam and take Pakistan to a mammoth total Afghanistan can only think of chasing.
The pitch at Leeds always has something to go the bowlers’ way but again batting first, putting runs on the board & creating pressure would still be the first priority.
We are going with Pakistan as the belief they are carrying is good enough to demolish Afghanistan.
So, Imad Wasim turns up at a very crucial stage in an all-round performance to avoid a major scare. Wahab Riaz joins him and hits a six in the penultimate over against Rashid Khan to take Pak over the line. Afghanistan made 227/9 and then Pak made 48 in their last 5 overs to avoid the upset. Good game Afghanistan but again Pakistan continue their 1992 conspiracy theory.
Pakistan: 230/7 MOM: Imad Wasim: 2/48(10) & 49*(54)
