Afghanistan vs Pakistan – A Rare Clash of Asian Neighbors

Given the influence that Pakistan and India have had on Afghanistan cricket in terms of providing infrastructure, inspiration and coaches, it’s kind of ironic that Afghanistan have hardly played the two big teams from their region. Political crises contributed as did the mushrooming of T20 leagues around the world, which resulted in fewer bilateral series being scheduled. This October-November, Afghanistan and Pakistan will meet in the UAE for the first time at a T20 World Cup.

Pakistan won the tournament in 2009, but haven’t made it to the semi-finals since 2012. With India and New Zealand also in the same group, Pakistan can’t afford a slip-up if they’re to qualify for the final 4. For many of Afghanistan’s senior players, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to upset the country where most of them learned to play cricket. This Afghanistan-Pakistan cricket match certainly won’t lack drama or thrill.

Afghanistan vs Pakistan Head to Head Stats

They may be neighbors but strained political relations have meant that Afghanistan and Pakistan have barely played each other in the past decade. There has been only one match at global events, during the 2019 World Cup, and it’s now nearly 8 years since they played their only T20I.

Mohammad Nabi: Afghanistan Captain

In a sense, the story of Nabi’s career is also the tale of Afghan cricket’s rise. From repeatedly smashing MCC bowlers onto the Western Railway tracks in Mumbai during a game in 2006 to leading his team in global events, Nabi has come a long way. Though he’s 36 now, he remains a big hitter, and his tidy off-spin has often been used even in Power Play overs. With Afghanistan cricket in turmoil after all the political changes in the country, the board has again opted for a captain who brings a sense of calm to the team.

Babar Azam: Pakistan Captain

It’s a measure of how consistently excellent Babar has been that he is currently ranked in the top 10 in every single format. Top of the rankings in ODIs, he is currently No. 2 in T20I rankings. Pakistan haven’t reached the semi-final of the T20 World Cup since 2012, and they won it only once, in 2009. Azam’s batting class will be pivotal to the team’s hopes of ending that drought.
