Pakistan will take on Afghanistan in the fourth match of the Super 4 stage in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, September 07.
If Afghanistan wins this fixture, they will stay alive in the competition, but if Pakistan registers a victory, both Afghanistan and India will be eliminated from the multi-team tournament.
The track at Sharjah favours spinners, and both sides have some top-quality tweakers. Two of the three matches played here in the ongoing competition saw batters going for the full monty. Fans, therefore, can expect another high-scoring contest.
