PTV Sports Live Pakistan vs Afghanistan Asia Cup 2022 Super 4

Sri Lanka’s last night victory against India has simplified the equation for Pakistan as another win in Asia Cup 2022 whether today or on Friday against Sri Lanka will take green shirts into the final.

In the Super 4 Stage of Asia Cup 2022, Pakistan beaten India at Dubai on September 4 by 5 wickets and secured 2 crucial points. Whereas Sri Lanka have already 4 points after beating Afghanistan & India, and are very much in the driving seat.

If Pakistan defeat Afghanistan at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday night, they will cement their place in the final along with Sri Lanka on Sunday. In that case, India and Afghanistan will be eliminated from the tournament, and their tomorrow’s match would just merely be a bilateral contest.

However, Afghanistan wouldn’t be that easy competitor as though Pakistan won both the previous T20Is against them at Sharjah on December 08, 2013 and at Dubai on October 29, 2021 but both of them were nail biters.
